Default Re: Syrian Army T-72 Destroys al-Qaeda T-90 in northern Hama Governorate, Syria

I remember most of the conscripts we captured in 1991 had AKs so old and used (presumably the AKs were vets of the Iran/Iraq war) they were literally smoothbores. Also maintenance wasn't much of a priority, tho they generally managed to keep the sand out of them I don't recall that any were lubed.
