    I was just going to talk about this ^ 
     
    It was a good old NERA upgrade kit, absent of any ceramics. Iraq had problems producing steel, never-mind ceramics.

    Yeah, that was my next thought: Doesn't a minimum wage hurt small businesses way more than it hurts the big soulless corps that everybody hates?

    Look at what two vehicles make an appearance;

    I would like to think that people don't want to buy things from shit companies. If we assume this then companies have the incentive to treat their workers fairly as if they don't they can reveal the companies faults and thus become less desirable.
     
    I don't go to Chick-Fil-A unless I am dragged there. I don't really want to buy from a company that has the same ideology as Mike Huckabee. Being Christian in a Christian majority country isn't a bad business strategy though and CFA doesn't really suffer from me going to Waffle House all the time. However if CFA supported slavery or something then I would suspect that their profits would suffer. 
     
    Free Markets aren't soulless just like government isn't always soulful.

    2S35 hasn't been seen at the RAE grounds, and will be showed thanks to official confirmation. We may or may not see Kurganets, and I wouldn't be surprised to actually see it.

    T-14 MBT, T-15 HBMP, and for the first time - Armata HUTP-based recovery/engineer vehicle, i think it was to be called T-16, but IDK.

    I recommended he come here. 
     
    I'm surprised you didn't say "You'll be fine if you have a Russian bias".

    Camera blocks. They can work during day and night.

     

     

     
    Engines that are considered for Kurganets. Left one is from Armata.

     
    Variable ground clearance - from 100 mm to 500 mm.

    I don't suppose he can explain what the hatch at the back is for?

    After looking at it again, I'd say it is either a 2S1 or 2S3.

    Possible ceramic armor used in Kurganets.

    Mike E reacted to Collimatrix in Vehicles of the PLA: Now with refreshing new topic title!   
    Gunner's Primary Sight, but directly attached to the gun instead of mounted to the roof and synchronized with the gun.  Like the sight arrangement on Challenger II.

    Mike E reacted to Toxn in Fucking NERA everywhere   
    Having grown up with the understanding that composite armour was some sort of amazing blend of high-tech ceramics, superalloys and advanced polymers; it has been supremely disappointing to learn how much of it is boring stuff like fibreglass sandwiches and NERA.
     
    It's a bit like the discovery that the 'secret' to making a stradivarius was reasonable craftsmanship, a shit-ton of varnish and good marketing.

    Mike E got a reaction from LostCosmonaut in MiG 1.44 Returns   
    For the PAK-FA, there was one that was supposedly official (based off of the accuracy, it was);
     

     
    A few other ones got the rear geometry spot on, and everything else far off. 
     
    There are a few LMFS drawings from a guy at IDF, similar to the T-50, but it probably isn't far off; http://defenceforumindia.com/forum/threads/russia-to-develop-light-class-fighter-jet.56925/
     
    I suspect it will be a MiGified T-50 with one engine...but it could be completely different, I obviously don't know.

    Mike E got a reaction from LoooSeR in Ukrainian armor - Oplot-M, T-64M Bulat and other.   
    According to Defense.pk, the Oplot-M unit in Pakistan has failed a major engine failure (enough so to where they need a whole new unit), and the testing process is halted. The engine will be shipped via sea and will take 6 months to arrive in Pakistan. That basically means it has failed testing and will not be procured. 
     
    Which...in turn means Pakistan will go for the T-90MS or a Type-99A2 (rumored they will get one for testing). 
     
    It's also funny to note that Harkonnen, a well-known Kharkovite, never peeped a word after this news came out. Oh the joy of being a URALSTRONK'er.

    Ohh how could i not notice! That Kurganets have 9K23BM "Log-M1" equipment installed! Most important part of any Soviet/Russian AFV is on its place, vehicle is ready for combat.
