Syria rebels get US-made missiles


"Moderate, well-organised fighters from the Hazm movement have for the first time received more than 20 TOW anti-tank missiles from a Western source," the source said on condition of anonymity, and without specifying who had supplied the rockets. The Hazm movement, part of the opposition Free Syrian Army, brings together mainly ex-army officers and soldiers who defected from the military to join the revolt.
Amateur video distributed by the opposition Masarat media network showed rebels unpacking, loading and firing several missiles at unnamed locations in the Syrian countryside. "Most of the targets were tanks," said the rebel official, adding that "the 20 missiles have been used 100 percent effectively, always hitting their targets."

(Наскільки я зрозумів, це те, що називається ПТУРС з керуванням по дроту. Початок виробництва в 1970 році. З того часу були зроблені різні удосконалення. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BGM-71_TOW)
