Documents for the Documents God

Recommended Posts

Can somebody tell me why CIA wwould document their own tank or their own serect armor(at 80s) ?

 

Guessing it's changed quite a bit since the original Abrams models.

 

There's not a whole lot of point to keep something so obsolete and dated a secret.

Those apostrophes aren't unnecessary, they signify the soft sign character ь. I have no idea how it migrated into transliterated Russian though, the closest thing that was implemented was the cancellation of the hard sign ъ in favour of the apostrophe in 1917. The apostrophe actually works like a hard sign (stops the syllable in the middle of the word) whereas the soft sign does something completely different. I've seen it in lots of places though, not just here.

that hasn't stopped them in the past

 

the advantage of declassifiers of documents working at a different agency is that they can't be fired by the Department of Defense.
