As Western powers have increased their airstrikes against Islamic State group militants in Iraq and Syria, a number of amazing videos have circulated the Internet showing the awesome power of the various air forces that are attacking.
The caption to the video stated that the planes that carried out the airstrike were British Tornados using Brimstone missiles to take out the targets.
Islamic State group fighters had attempted to hide a T-55 tank and an armed truck in the trees, but they didn’t do a very good job because the pilot of the Tornado immediately spotted them.
All it took was one missile to reduce both vehicles to burning wrecks. That is going to seriously hurt the Islamic State group because the terrorist army doesn’t have that many tanks in its arsenal.
The group does have an abundance of light armored vehicles and small arms, but very little heavy weaponry. While a normal government would be able to easily replace this tank, the Islamic State group will be hard-pressed to find another one that it can use.
Much of the Islamic State group’s weaponry came from the Syrian and Iraqi armies, which fled in the face of the terror group’s fighters instead of fighting to stop them. These armies left lots of equipment behind — equipment which has allowed the terror group to expand its territorial gains with relative ease.
This terror group has a mix of antiquated Soviet-era weaponry along with state-of-the-art American-made vehicles and weapons. This combination of weapons has proved to be too great for most opponents on the battlefield.
However the superior air forces of the West have easily dealt crushing blows to the terror group.
