U.S.-led airstrikes kill 62 civilians in Dayr al-Zawr
Syrian War Daily – 21st of October 2018
Daesh hit an SDF technical with an ATGM
Polish/Czech OT-64 SKOT in the second and third pictures.
Don't forget the MT-LB 6MA in the first picture and the BMP-1 in the last picture!
I gave emphasis to the SKOTs because there are unconfirmed reports that they were supplied to the FSA through Jordan, although I believe they were captured directly from the SAA.
It looks like the MT-LB was hit to the left side.
I remember seeing it in a video around a year ago. Syria bought 300 SKOTs from Czechoslovakia in 1976 but it's more likely that they received them from their sponsors in 2016/17. http://eadaily.com:8080/en/news/2017/05/23/now-armored-vehicles-bulgarian-arms-supplies-to-jihadists-in-syria-doubled

On the upside. Thanks to this conflict a lot of legacy equipment has been used and expended. Yet it still surprises me how much old equipment from several decades ago still hangs around. Must be nice being in the SAA a decade or so after this conflict as they have more modern equipment to use.
