I'm pretty sure they take out the depleted uranium armor on export models. Not sure if it's replaced with steel (doubt it) or composite. This tank is lacking the remote gun turret so it probably didn't have the TUSK kit so the ERA side skirts wouldn't be present. Not that they would have helped here.

You see these sort of tactics all over the middle east because for whatever reason, they refuse to deploy tanks with an infantry compliment in urban locations. Of course given the complete lack of any kind of activity, I'd wager this tank had been abandoned for whatever reason.
