This sighting is too horrible to submit to RN for a coveted mug but a 90 recently made the very worst kind of movie: an ISIS propaganda film. IS recently captured the Ayyash Weapons Depot from the Syrian Arab Army--this is likely the single largest materiel capture in the whole Syrian Civil War. You won't read about this on CNN or FNC but this is big news and it's really, really terrible news for everyone else involved. They captured millions of rounds of small arms ammunition along with massive quantities of crew-served, anti-armor, and anti-aircraft munitions. They also grabbed upwards of 100 anti-tank guided missiles. Finally, they captured this 90 with what looks to me like a M40 recoilless rifle mounted:



The film has some truly horrific scenes aside from the depot capture and I won't give them the propaganda benefit of posting it here. You can see more pics of their materiel haul here:

Oryx Blog: Islamic State captures Ayyash weapons depots in largest arms haul of Syrian Civil War

Maybe there's some anti-prize for the worst Defender sighting...

Chris thank you for the post. This type of thing often makes me wonder if we should be seeing these films so we may truly understand what we are up against.

I guess everyone's into upgrades and bling. An odd choice for that grill and light surrounds to show up.

Yep. Likely just the rear crossmember though which can be replaced somewhat easily.

It actually has the factory SVX grill and not the KBX crap.

Do you think ISIS will start selling their take off parts?

I'm wondering if we'll start seeing this truck in videos like the plumber's truck.

Looks like they are expanding beyond Toyota and the Ford Plumber's truck...

No, Toyota Is Not Supplying ISIS With Pickup Trucks
