TOW Missile Used to Destroy Tank in the Open

Published 11 months ago

A member of the Free Syrian Army uses his CIA supplied BGM-71 TOW Missile to take out a Syrian Arab Army tank that has been sitting in the open for a little bit too long.


I feel like I've been writing about ATGM attacks in Syria for a years at this point, and it's because I have. One of the worst ideas the CIA has had in the past decade was to arm Syrian rebels with TOW missiles so that they could better stand up to Syrian Arab Army Armor. At first, this seemed like a great idea, as it leveled the playing field between the two groups and gave the FSA a chance when fighting the SAA's far superior armor capabilities.


Unfortunately, this also gave the FSA key training and experience on how to set up and utilize ATGM systems to their full effect. When the FSA was inevitably overrun and fully radicalized by Islamic Extremists, this training didn't just go away. It simply transferred into the hands of terrorist organizations who would cross-apply their experience to black-market purchased ATGMs once the CIA stopped outfitting them with brand new shiny TOW missiles.
