Two video, showing attempts of terrorists to destroy the Syrian T-72B tank with the TOW 2A anti-tank missiles, were published online by one of the armed groups of the Free Syrian Army (FSA). The videos were filmed during the last fights for Aleppo.

Militants claim that the tank was totally destroyed. However, we can clearly see that in one case the missile hit the front part of the tank, while in the second case it just touched a small earth mound in front of the tank. In addition, last seconds of one of the videos show us a crew, leaving the tank after the hit. The fact that terrorists stopped to record the further developments right after the hit also says that the tank remained intact after the double shelling.
