  1. Is this the first footage of S-500? https://twitter.com/KomissarWhipla/status/1417376919474089998?s=20
  2. At this point the reveal is completly spoiled so...
  3. I´m just confused with the amount of IFVs that came out of Turkey. Remember the Tulpar?
  4. Ok its not a MiG but a Sukhoi. Su-75 apparently. That designation makes sense as it plays with Su-57. https://fighterjetsworld.com/air/sukhoi-su-75-checkmate-russias-new-stealth-fighter-jet/26215/ Better image:
  5. He did prove you wrong though. Victory at any cost.
  6. The air intake seems to run from the "chin" up to including the "cheeks"
  7. Sukhoi and Mig are no longer separate companies, rather separate design teams under the UAC. Mig has access to Sukhoi´s research and installations and vice versa. If this plane is any good and is offered at a good price it will do very well in the export market as its only competitor is the F-35. Depends on how many stuff it borrows from Su-57. For example, if its meant to share the same Izdelie 30 engine, then a big chunk of development work will be finalized before this Mig comes off production lines.
  8. The shape around the cockpit is basically the same as the model shown years ago
  9. AFAIK currently there is only one Stryker Brigade stationed in Europe. Or are there any plans to deploy an armored brigade there as well?
  10. Poland is like a kid on a toy store wanting to buy everything on sale. Next thing is gonna be a Cr2 just to complete the Western Tank Fanboy Collection, practicality be damned. Seriously, Abrams pretty much has zero commonality with Poland´s existing Leo 2 fleet. SEPv3 has an ADL which Leo 2 doesn´t feature, so those tanks may not even have ammunition commonality. I gotta wonder the point of this contract if Poland could have upgraded their Leopards to SEPv3-like levels by themselves or via de Germans. I guess this also means that the K2PL might be dead.
  11. Well it doesn´t look like an (ugly) skyscraper, so thats a plus.
  12. Or just ask Rheinmetall pretty please a discount price for Lynx. Its the only sensible solution at this point.
  13. Whats the difference with the original Vikhr?
  14. Is this 100 percent confirmed? What a sh*t show
  15. @Wiedzmin what you identify there as "plate" in the top picture is actually the ceramic-based add-on module (which might be encased in steel) present in the IFV version but not mounted on the APC shown in the middle picture. I know its the IFV because that scene showed that and also the little fixed hooks around the driver´s hatch. What you identify as "flange" is actually the base aluminium plate. In the first picture it can be seen clearly that the add-on module and the aluminium plate are of approximately the same thickness and the closeups we have on the composite show that its clearly about 30-60mm thick.
  16. Well that should be estimated but judging by eye it seems a "little" thicker than mere 1.8 cm. BTW managed to get a much better shot.
