Tanks are one of the most deadly monstrosities on the ground in war. They are rolling, heavily armored cannons that seem almost invincible to the average person. While they do have a number of weaknesses that can defeat them, when you find yourself on open ground a half-kilometer away from them, there isn’t much you can do as a regular infantryman. Even less you can do about it when you’re just a reporter.
The footage below was recorded by a Syrian journalist who is embedded with members of the FSA on the front-lines of the Syrian Civil War. He finds himself on the receiving end of a serious shelling being conducted by four regime tanks, and there isn’t anything he can do about it except roll his camera and capture the carnage. This what he recorded.
