  1. A feature of USSR tanks that may exist to this day is something called engine smoke screen. Basically it's just pouring some fuel into the exhaust in order to produce white smoke behind the tank. If I had to take a guess the rear exhaust is primarily for the smoke screen function but still serves as a secondary exhaust point regardless.
  2. Why is Russia upgrading T-80's, T-72's and T-90's? This seems reminiscent of the cold war days of procuring three relatively similar tanks that have virtually no commonality.... I understand the T-14 was meant to solve this, but that appears to be a glorified tech demonstrator. So why don't they just settle on one design? I understand someone told me earlier the Turbine T-80's function better in the artic, but this doesn't seem like enough of a justification for operating an entirely different tank.... If anything why dont they just create a T-72 variant with turbines in them at that point....
  3. Why are T-80B tanks being upgraded instead of the theoretically better T-80U/UD's?
  4. I keep forgetting that's the AMPV and the Bradley hull. Seems like a easy enough solution. But alas funding and money n stuff.
  5. If they want to use the Bradley chassis that bad why not just stick that 30MM Stryker turret on it? It's already been made and means ammo commonality....
  6. I'm shocked MPF hasn't been canceled yet.... Even if it passes trials I wonder if in the end the Army will actually buy them.
  7. I thought the Russian Military hated the T-80 because of its gas guzzling turbines? Didn't some high level official say something along the lines of "we'll never make/use turbine powered tanks ever again!" after the whole Grozney Fiasco (not that, that was the tanks fault....)
  8. Any update on those missing individuals? Hope they're alright....
  9. Got any links to the HMWHS? Is that what's taking up all the space?
  10. Why do the Queen Elizabeth class carriers carry so few aircraft relative to their size?
  11. If Putin is Dark Lord of the Sith (what happened to Chaney/Bush?) then who is his apprentice?
  12. So are they there just as a publicity stunt? Or did they legit train to compete in the competition? Also wouldn't Russia want to put forth its best tanks for this thing?
  13. Hopefully the damage isn't too severe. Glad no one got hurt.
