Is he lucky or what

That guy was lucky, but it was a simple case of bad timing.
He wasn't part of the tank crew, he was just trying to steal the hubcaps.
I've seen a frame from that video with the warhead visible and it's pretty big; more likely a Metis-M, think Milan on steroids.

Before of after the fact?

I'm pretty sure he was still taking a dump as he ran away......and probably still is.
Don't know about lucky, I bet his strides are full of shit and melted to his legs, while the rest of him smells like a well used George Foreman grill.
There's no fecking way that the bloke was in the tank when it cooked off. I agree with other posters that he was either having a dump, making a brew or syphoning off the fuel.

he ran to the building which was probably their accom so he was probably the standing guard and was having a bored shit
Try this. Posted by seanbean on the 'All Videos and pics in here' thread.


Syrian tank is hit by HEAT round. Anyone in tank is killed instantly by spall, HEAT jet fragments, temperature, and massive pressure wave - forces involved are immense.

A few seconds later, the propellant magazine (T-72 uses two piece ammunition,) which is unprotected and encircles the turret in the T-72, begins to burn, after being perforated by numerous white hot fragments.

The propellant goes off - 50 rounds worth of tank shell propellant burning. Tank essentially becomes rocket engine chamber and the hatch is the nozzle, massive jet of flame results. Interior of tank is 2000 degrees F or so due to being massive rocket engine chamber.

> - Syria - Tank "ultrakilled" in Darayya.
Just after the bloke enters the ruins a rifle shot hits the pillar a bit higher than where his head would have been a milisecond earlier. Lucky, lucky bastard.

the much prized BV probably the only thing we consistantly get right. :)

not sure if they are allowed now with all that heath and safety going about, dangerous having hot liquids in a combat enviroment.
