Free Syrian Army rebels, armed with an American TOW missile, take aim at a Syrian Army T-72 main battle tank. The Syrian tank had most likely recently topped off on fuel and ammunition that combusts all at once upon detonation of the missile, resulting in a massive, Hollywood type explosion that sends twisted steel wreckage several meters into the air.
Incredibly, a soldier can be seen running from close proximity of the explosion. There is no way he could have been in that tank and survived. He must have been an infantryman conducting ground support for the armor, but it is still incredible that he was able to walk away from a blast like that.
