An FSA Sniper picks off a Syrian Regime tank commander while his crew is preparing to retreat from their current position.

While preparing to retreat, a tank commander reveals his position to an enemy sniper for a few seconds longer than he should have. It’s unclear exactly what he was doing while he was in the open, but it looks as if he was trying to get something unstuck from the back of his vehicle. The time it took to do so however, was the last few moments of his life as the FSA sniper took the shot and ended him.

This is not the first time we have seen Regime armor being forced to operate in confined urban spaces with little to no infantry support. It proves several points. First, movement is life when you’re in a 360 degree combat environment. Second, overwatch and a ground maneuver element are needed in order for tank crews to conduct tasks that may require them to exit the safety of their armor.
