BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The Free Syrian Army (FSA) has manufactured their first armored personnel carrier in northern Syria, the group announced on Monday.
Dubbed the ‘Al-Fahd’, the new FSA armored personnel carrier is modeled after the Turkish vehicles that were used during the Euphrates Shield operation that was carried out in 2017 and 2018.
“The 4×4 vehicle turns at a speed of 80 km/hour on flat land and 30 km/hour through mountainous terrain, according to a source with the FSA-affiliated Al-Hamza division,” the Turkish publication Yeni Safak reported.
“The personnel carrier has a length of 6 meters, the height of 3 m and width of 1.75 m,” they added.
The FSA carrier can take 10 soldiers, including a five-person crew.
