New type of ATGM jammer spotted on Syrian tanks

A new variant of an electrooptic ATGM jamming device has been spotted on the Syrian T-72 tanks and military vehicles.

Specifically, the jammer has been spotted during fighting in Aleppo as Syrian Governmental forces along with several allied factions have been fighting a rebel offensive aimed at breaking the enforced siege around the city.

Compared to the earlier version, the Sarab-1 active protection system, the modernized version nicknamed ‘Birdhouse’ features a larger number of peepholes, which, apparently, allow to create jamming on a larger number of frequency. This should make Syrian tanks more invulnerable.
