Supposed Uran-9 in Syria clip is actually that of T-62M

Quite a few Russian blogs have shared an animated GIF of what is purportedly an Uran-9 “combat multi-functional robotic complex” moving across Syrian desert. Sorry to disappoint guys, but it is most likely a Soviet era main battle tank T-62M. The original video from which the clip was cut, was published on 20 February, 2017, by the Syrian Ministry of Defence.

One needs to look at the platform, curtain, cannon, laser rangefinder, commander’s sight and radio antenna right next to it. And it becomes pretty obvious that it is T-62M main battle tank.
