Turkey bought ten AH-1W SuperCobras in the early 1990s, and supplemented with 32 ex-US Army AH-1 Cobras.[27] The AH-1s have been used against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) rebels.[28] In late 2011, Turkey requested the purchase of three AH-1Ws from the USMC inventory.[29][30]

On May 13, 2016, PKK militants shot down a Turkish Army AH-1W SuperCobra using a 9K38 Igla (SA-18 Grouse) MANPADS. In the published video, the missile severed the tail section from the rest of the helicopter, causing it to spin, fragment in midair and crash, killing the two pilots onboard. The Turkish government first claimed that it fell due to technical failure then it became obvious that it was shot down'.[31]

Rebel forces attack a Syrian army artillery base on foot, they get to the walls and start throwing in bombs and grenades, one crazy guy throws hand grenade right into a tanks barrel blowing it up! Must see craziness. Hama, Syria.

Do these bastards really need help? Why not help out Assad? The middle east is not like USA or Europe or Russia. I think the word is less evolved? In order for everybody to live peacefully there has to be some ruthless asshole at the helm. If the government here collapsed I bet cutting someones head off might cross peoples minds but I wouldn't say it would be at the top of their list. The lack of the snackbar leads me to believe these are foreigners to Syria.
