It is unknown how many armored vehicles the Syrian army now has in Deir Ezzor. The following is a compilation of photos collected over the past year. It gives some idea of the amount of armored vehicles they have in the besieged city.
The presence of T-72 TURMS-Ts, T-55MVs, and T-72AVs suggests they are better equipped than most analysts realize. The Syrian army/Republican guard has lost many armored vehicles. During the most recent ISIS offensive, 3 BMP-1s were lost, along with one T-55A and T-72M1 TURMS-T hit by ATGMs. The T-55A that was hit by an ATGM did not cook off, and may therefore be repairable. The aftermath of the hit T-72 was not shown.
