It’s an interesting and unlikely sight to see armor on the Islamic State’s side. Since most of the armored vehicles seen in rebel hands were homemade with scrap and whatever they could get their hands on, to see something like a T-62 main battle tank is surprising. However, at the start of the Syrian civil war all the factions had access to armored vehicles and tanks captured from either the Syrian or Iraqi armed forces.
Nonetheless, since the big boys entered the picture these tanks have been put away or blown away. Now with air raids from both Russia and NATO forces, the rebel operated tanks/APCs are rare outside ISIS strongholds. One can say that after starting strong and storming the world by surprise, ISIS looks pretty toothless as of late.
