Vehicles And Equipment Captured By The Islamic State Inside Syria Until November 2014

By Stijn Mitzer and Joost Oliemans


This list only includes captured vehicles and equipment of which photo or videographic evidence is available. Therefore, the amount of equipment captured by the Islamic State may be higher than recorded here.

Although some of the tanks and artillery fielded by the Islamic State in recent offensives such as Kobanê were captured from Brigade 93 and Regiment 121 respectively, a great deal of effort has been put into avoiding double listings.

As most the trucks captured at the various bases in Northern Syria were already derelict years before their capture, they're not included in the list. does not include complete wrecks or gate guards and derilict MiG-17s captured at Kshesh/Jirah airbase.
