Abstract

One of the most remarkable mechanized campaigns of recent years pitted the brutal and heavily armed jihadists of the Islamic State against the improvised Kurdish force, the YPG (later the SDF). While some Kurdish vehicles originated from Syrian Army stocks, or were captured from ISIS, many others were homemade AFVs based on trucks or agricultural diggers. This study explains how the Kurds built their own AFVs, the tactics they employed against ISIS in their mobile operations, and which battles marked the campaign for the removal of ISIS as a conventional force in Syria.
