A drive down a road in Syria turned tense when a Russian armoured vehicle was pushed off the road by a US one, as shown in this dramatic video.
The clip, filmed by a Syrian civilian in their car, shows three Russian military vehicles driving in convoy down a road – with a 4×4 GAZ Tigr in the lead followed by a 6×6 Typhoon-K truck and an 8×8 BTR-series.
About twenty-six seconds in, the Tigr tries to pass two US military vehicles in front by veering into the dirt track on the right-hand side, overtaking the first vehicle, then turning left back into the road so it is wedged between them.

The crew of the US vehicle veers left to take up more of the road so that the Russian vehicle can't go any further, then abruptly steers right and drives them off the road.
A civilian narrowly avoids being hit by the Russian Tigr and leaps out the way just in time.
The video ends just as the Russian and American vehicles both abruptly come to a stop, with the outcome of the altercation not known.
This comes after Russia flaunted its new upgraded multiple rocket launcher in a terrifying war game in a remote region.
