The Free Syrian Army Captures SA-6 Surface To Air Missiles

The following video from Hran Awameed 25km east of Damascus has been posted on Youtube showing a convoy that has been captured by the FSA loaded with a number of containers
Something Awful forum member mlmp08 noted that the one missile shown in a container appear to be SA-6 surface to air missile, which can be seen seen in a similar container here
You can make out some identifying features in these screenshots, including the warhead, unusual middle section, and the tail fins

As of yet there's no evidence that the FSA have captured the launching platform for the missile, and the missiles are effectively useless without one, apart from their use as IED components.
