Syrian Rebels Capture Syrian Army Weapons Cache

The news isn't all bad for al-Nusra and the FSA.

Here they are going to fight brigade 61, which as far as I can tell is infantry attached to the Syrian 5th armored division.

And here are the Iranian supplied Soviet Weapons they found. Including the Soviet RPG-29) anti-tank weapon.

The RPG-29 (NATO designation: Vampir) is a Russian rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launcher. Adopted by the Soviet Army in 1989,[2] it was the last RPG to be adopted by the Soviet military before the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. The RPG-29 has since been supplemented by other rocket-propelled systems, such as the RPG-30 and RPG-32 "Hashim". The RPG-29's PG-29V tandem-charge warhead is one of the few warhead systems which has penetrated the hulls of Western composite-armored main battle tanks in active combat.
