The Syrian Army and its allies have launched a counter-attack on ISIS in the area surrounding the T4 airbase, after the militant group reached the outskirts of the airbase as a result of Syrian Army collapse in Palmyra.

The T-62M was introduced into service with the Russian Armed Forces in 1983. The tank is fitted with the Sheksna (US designation AT-12 Swinger) laser beam-riding missile system, passive armor protection, a V-55U engine and the R-173 communications system.
