New gifts for Syrian rebels from Gulf states.
Oryx Blog: Syria and her HJ-8's
Nice Catch ..There is no doubt These Weapons from KSA
My guess would be UAE since their army uses HJ-8, or perhaps those are factory new launcher ordered by some Gulf state.
HJ-8 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
HJ-8 is used by Pakistan, this is wire guided anti tank missile. It does not have tandem warhead to take out ERA.
HJ-8 tested on Chinese tank
Good addition to Rabels.
Not sure about Pakistani variant, but later Chinese models were made to defeat ERA.
meh... so what? Rebels have been using Konkurs for over a year and it is a much better missile.
no tandem charge.
The US said to Arab allies, don't send rebels anything that can pierce our armour... Arabs say, got it! they get HJ-8!
Understatement, understatement of the millenium.
Militant with ATGM "Konkurs"
Pakistan makes licensed version of HJ-8s known as Baktar Shikan. Pakistan also exports Baktar Shikan to other countries and can destroy tank targets at a distance of 3 km. These were possibly supplied to Bosnian government forces against Serbian tanks during the mid-1990s, the weapon proved effective enough to penetrate the frontal armor of M-84 tanks.
It can possibly become new anti-tank Missile for Taliban forces (if possible ISI funded LeT).
Hmm the tank looks intact to me after the hit.
yeah, that was first thing that come to my mind, this is the same anti tank missile which PA got from China through TOT.
I suppose the guy who aimed the wire guided missile deserves some credit. Did you see how fast that missile flies? Aiming a missile like that at a target 3 km away with dust and smoke around can't be easy. However there is no real proof that the missile that hit the tank was the same one that was fired I guess LOL
Of course the missile hit the target. Didn't you hear "allahu akbar!"?
Seriously the continuity of the video needs forensic analysis.
this is standard practice when you test missile, even we do it, like nag tests.
It has the option to be fitted with tandem warhead.
lol, do you think it is as easy as optional to make it with tandem warhead........
