Footage of SA-8 Gecko SAM vehicles, & other AFV's destroyed by the Armée de l’Air

BBC footage of the wreckage left after a French air strike on regime vehicles on the Adjabiya to Benghazi road.
Amphibious SA-8 Gecko SAM systems were destroyed together with MBT's, and 152mm self propelled guns.
Quite why the tyrant needs amphibious SAM vehicles in a desert is anyone's guess.

The SA-8 can guide two missiles on different frequencies to complicate ECM. There is also a tubular device fitted to and above the tracking radar, this is thought to be an EO/LLLTV optical tracker. This would be used to track the target when the main tracking radar is jammed by ECM.
