Equipment of the Syrian Army

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

List of modern equipment of the Syrian Arab Army.[1] The vast majority of Syrian military equipment was Soviet manufactured but the organization and military doctrine of the armed forces followed a mix of French and Western influences as the Soviet Union jealously guarded its operational principles and never shared them with client states.[2] Accuracy of numbers is difficult to assess during the Syrian Civil War specially losses and heavy weapons from Russia and Iran (like drones or tanks).
