Syrian rebels destroy T-72

Unverified video purports to show the sequence of events (separate clips of shot and impact) of Syrian rebels using an RPG-29 to destroy a Syrian Army T-72 main battle tank. An anonymous analysis (translated from Russian) posted to LiveLeak includes still frames of the projectile and provides additional perspective.

These troops are so poorly trained. No infantry pulling security, and no response to the tank kill. Kinda funny tho seeing the lone survivor disgorge from the rear hatch of the vehicle.
