Republican guard tanks are practically running ISIS over in Yarmouk, I have a feeling this is what the majority of the conflict would look like without massive amounts of anti tank weaponry.
Man for man tho they seem to be doing a lot better than the eastern ghouta rebels
I think it is because they literally have nowhere else to go. It is fight or die for them.
There are a few key differences between the Yarmouk and Ghouta battle. In Ghouta the SAA didn't have to fight for much urban territory because once they reach it the rebels surrendered, there are far less men involved in the fighting in Yarmouk, and this front isn't getting quite as much support from Syria's allies as Ghouta did.

SAA won't advance a single inch! Wait...
This was some great tank combat, also loved the drone footage. The SAA have most definitely improved over the years.
I really enjoy watching videos of the SAA pushing, you can see they are going in deep & hard as they are way past the apcs.
It's not quite ANNA quality but this is very good footage nonetheless. Especially appreciated the drone footage which makes up the second half of the video; you can really see the SAA put it together and execute a competent offensive.
Has the cage armor proven itself effective? Against ATGMs in particular? Or is it just a placebo thing? What generation TOWs etc are they using and do they have tandem warheads and such?
I'd love to have some statistics on tank losses since the add on armor has become widespread.
I dont think they have to worry about ATGMs in this instance, probably just RPGs.
