Default Leo2A4 destroyed

Here is the article.
http://en.protothema.gr/major-milita...intact-photos/

I do wonder (if the article is accurate of course), what happened to the destroyed Leo2A4. My first thought was that it was captured and then destroyed. My second that it was hit in the ammo somehow.

What do you guys think?

This site has a video too: https://southfront.org/isis-releases...ary-equipment/

They have the APC moving but the Leo is not running - perhaps the Turks destroyed/ immobilised them?

The photos also include a sequence of a tank being hit by an ATGM (Kornet?) don't know if that same as destroyed tank on site you linked too (I did notice although both say 2 tanks captured they only show one!)

This (probably more reputable site) lists all armoured vehicles captured by ISIS:
http://defence-blog.com/army/vehicle...side-iraq.html

No mention of the Leos

It is possible the Turks destroyed their tank with an airstrike or something.

It appears to me that list was compiled before this incident occurred.

No good new for the Turks but I did get Turkish Desert Camo from it

If the Turks didn't send in airstrikes to destroy those vehicles ( and anything else they found moving in the area) that would be a serious lapse in judgement on their part that will come back to bite them

In general the Turkish military performs quite average in Syria. And to get into a game issue, I think their inflated base experience and morale are not in accordnance to their RL performance...

Hindsight is always 20/20 --- any enemy can get lucky .......and Greeks commenting about Turks.....gee, how did I expect that to go ..... The Turks ratings right now are the high side of average-----we'll see how this develops.
