#1 The YPG is using anti-NATO Kornet tank killing ATGMs built by the Russians with devastating effect against Turkeys armor. This is the first conflict where the Russoan weapon is being shown daily in use by the YPG Press as never before seen. The weapon literally turns a NATO tank into crematorium incinerating the occupants of a tank when a tank is hit, causing the tank to cook off instantly. Go to youtube and enter the seatch term "ypg afrin" and you will see this Russian cold war weapon from hell in action against numerous Turkish tanks since the invasion began Jan 20th.

#3 They are the second largest army in NATO behind the US. However, one of their main suppliers, Germany has cut off more sales since the invasion of Rojava.

#4 A lot of blasted tanks in those photos. What is the Turkish ratio of reported casualties to real count?

#5 Looks like some doctrinal changes are needed to current armor thinking.

Looks like hull defilade is not going to work.

#7 What is the Turkish ratio of reported casualties to real count?

I seem to recall OldSpook reporting they were low by an order of magnitude or more on their own casualties, and high by an order of magnitude or more in their reports of Kurdish casualties, 3dc.
