Improvised Armored Vehicle used in battle for Kobani

The Guardian has published a video showing still images of an improvised armored vehicle used by Kurdish Militia in the fight against the Islamic State in Kobani Syria.  As usual, the headline calls the armored vehicle a “tank,” despite the fact that it has no tracks, turret or gun.  The video credits the vehicle for helping to drive the Islamic State fighters from the city.  It is probably fair to assume that US and Arab airstrikes were the more decisive factor in the battle.
