Turkish Tank Crew Saved by Israeli Upgrades

(Ynet News) Yoav Zitun - A Turkish M60T tank with Israeli upgrades survived an attack by an advanced anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) shot by ISIS, the defense magazine Jane's reported Thursday. The upgrades on the U.S.-made tank were made by Israel and sold to Turkey 10 years ago. The anti-tank missile was a Russian-made 129K9 shot at the Turkish tank last week near the town of Ba'ashiqa, 30 km. northeast of Mosul in Iraq. The tank was hit by the missile, but suffered no significant damage and none of the crew were injured thanks to the Israeli defense system.
