The syrian Army has 8 armoured and 3 mechanised divisions, a "Republican Guard" armoured division, and hte reserves can muster another 1 armoured
and 2 mech divisions, with older equipment.
they have about 5000 tanks among their 11,000 AFV's, or which 320 are T80's, 1700 are T72's, 1000 T62's and 2200 T55's (over half the 55's are
So moving a couple or 3 or 4 dozen T80's or T72's doesn't seem all that significant militarily - even in the context of the current fighting.
perhaps it is more significant for hte Syrians who are seeing such things uncensored for the first time jsut as an indicator of the regime's general
intentions?? But i'm pretty sure they all know those by now anyway......
