What a clusterfuck! You have Turkey with Syrian rebels pushing from the north, the Syrian government pushing from the south, and also Kurdish forces to the sides.

ISIS looks to be completely encircled soon.
You are bathing in misery and hope, waiting for someone to come and pull the plug.

A number of Syrian T-55s were upgraded by the North Koreans (the laser rangefinder is the main giveaway) among other things, like a 14.5mm KPV Machinegun. I don't think these tanks were shipped to North Korea and back to Syria, it was supposed to be a cheaper upgrade compared to the Soviet T-55AM variant alternative (which the Syrians do possess a good number of these). It got into Iraq the same way we saw a few HMMVs in Syria.

Or, they got into Syria the same way the Koksan got into Iran

Strange but at least it makes sense. Reminds me a bit of those midget subs Iran got from North Korea.

btw, if someone wants more pictures of Polish stuff, feel free to request. Got stuff from IL-2 to mig-29, from Kubus to SKOT, from Katyusha to Grad, and so on. I'm more than happy to search in my collection if there's interest, no guarantees though, I didn't take pictures of everything :(

Military situation at Raqqah makes me wonder what the Islamic state is actually planning. Drown Raqqah with all those die-hard fanboys having been accomodated there? Syrian Democratic Forces are only 4 kilometers away from Raqqah, Syria, February 18th, 2017.
