T-55, Type-59/79 maybe?

Can't seem to get a good look on the gun.

Looks a lot like a T-55.

Thanks for your answers - it seems to be indeed one of the many T-55 captured from the Iraqi army by IS gangmembers and now used in the onslaught on kurdish town Kobane...

Kobane is a Syrian town (official name of the town is "Ayn El Arab"). The majority of its citizens are the Kurds.

 

ISIS captured many tanks from both Iraqi and Syrian army. But the question is, how do they find ammo and tech-support for the tanks? Driving (and fighting with) a T55 is not as easy as driving a Toyota car.
