  1. https://elbitsystems.com/pr-new/israeli-ministry-of-defense-selects-elbit-systems-iron-fist-light-decoupled-active-protection-system-for-the-eitan-afv/ Israeli Ministry of Defense Selects Elbit Systems’ Iron Fist Light Decoupled Active Protection System for the Eitan AFV
  2. Of course it is true. For example, Soviet cars was copies of American and European. So, soviets could buy foreign technologies, if not from USA, than from Europe. IMO, this hypothetical helicopter is too small for having turbofan engines. Anyway, you may believe and wait for release of this chopper from the cartoon. SSJ
  3. Attack helicopters are smaller, aren't they? LOL, actually USSR wasn't so isolated. Russia is definitely not the first in aviation. Civil aircraft sucks, and still there is no even semi-stealth aircraft.
  4. There was a requirement to place all the ammo in the chassis.
  5. They put the engine at the front not for protection.
  6. But it doesn't mean that they can't aim forward. Merkava can, while some russian sources claim that it can't.
  7. Yes. And there are many vehicles with frontal engine. Do all of them have problems with aiming?
  8. That's how Internet works - reposting. BTW, why a hell should I know where did he read it? Just ask him.
  9. Those Russian, who participate in discussions on English forums. Is it really so hard to understand? BTW, this article is much older than I thought: https://topwar.ru/29321-konstruktivnye-uyazvimosti-osnovnoy-boevoy-mashiny-aoi-merkava-mk4.html
  10. There was an article, that was discussed on russian forums. Maybe it was from topwar. It's hard to remember now.
  11. I know that this myth appeared in Russian internet several years ago. This youtuber said nothing new, he just repeated what he had read on some forum, probably AW, or any other military forum popular among Russians.
  12. I live in Russia, asshole. I do know what Russian propaganda is, while rednecks like you don't. Yes, it's wrong, because this myth is spread by people who know nothing about this tank. I'd rather ask them where did they read about problems with aiming.
  13. That's very old photo, but the turret already has the hatch. And here it looks like there is the loader's hatch, but it is sealed.
  14. Must be all of them have (serial models)
