BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:05 P.M.) – On Wednesday, various rebel groups operating out of northern Hama province combined to launched a powerful offensive against the Syrian Army.

Code-named ‘Wrath for Ghouta,’ the militant offensive was aimed at avenging allied rebel factions in Damascus’ East Ghouta region; it was also hoped that the assault would relieve pressure on them by forcing the Syrian Army to divert military resources towards Hama province.

In the event, insurgents came head to head with the elite 555th Regiment of the 4th Mechanized Division who – supported by local pro-government forces, tanks, artillery and airstrikes – would turn the rebel offensive back on itself within a matter of hours.

When the dust settled, the Syrian Army had not only killed and injured many dozens of militant fighters, but would also lay claim to a small loot of heavy equipment that had been abandoned.

@Assad must stay, Turkish made BMC Kirpi based on the Israeli Hatehof Navigator. Or the later?

We’d have to wait for Daeshbags SX to comment.
He is more into details then me. Maybe he knows.

p.s. There was AFAIK a route for tanks from the Balkan also. But who knows – the SAA lost much equipment in the early stages of the war.

You can find a list of Turkish equipment in English Wikipedia.

It is in fact a so-called PANTHERA made by Turdey. Seems to have no reverse gear as the retarded gray Daesh gangs just left it in place.
