U.S. Special Operators in Syria Have Set Up Futuristic Computer-Assisted Mortar Turrets | The Drive

As the conflict in Syria continues to evolve, the U.S. government is re-examining what its future presence in the country might look like and for how long. In the meantime, American troops there are settling into increasingly more established forward outposts with improved defenses, including the futuristic-looking Advanced Mortar Protection System, or AMPS.

Earlier in April 2018, Kurdish media reported that U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, a group also known as the SDF that predominantly consists of Kurds, had established two new operating sites near the strategic city of Manbij in northern Syria. Subsequent images and video showed that American special operations forces were also present and had brought mine-resistant trucksHumvees, and other vehicles with them, as well as heavy weapons, including .50 caliber machine guns, automatic 40mm grenade launchers, and the AMPS.
