    Yes this is just part of a cooperation program between the ROKA and the defense companies from South Korea. The bits of equipment being tested aren't intended to be adopted by the ROK.

    "The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (Director Wang Jung-hong) announced on the 7th that the Army and three defense export companies have signed a military pilot operation agreement for export weapons systems and will start pilot operations this month.
     
    The pilot operation system of the export weapons system is a defense export support system that the South Korean military provides operating performance after piloting the weapons system developed for export purposes for a certain period of time."

    Some detail photos of the Hanwha Tigon.
     
    The ROK Army has currently two units operating, for a limited time, the Tigon to provide feedback both operationally and technically to Hanwha. This also extends to other export focused offerings by South Korean defence companies.

    Looks like model is finished. Keep in mind that part of it is most likely just a guesswork.

    Scolopax reacted to Beer in StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)   
    Panthers were replaced by T-34. Bergepanthers were replaced by VT-34. One Bergepanther was even rebuilt to use engine from T-34. Our T-34 were officially withdrawn in 1992 (believe it or not but it's true, roughly 100 stayed for some reason till 1990'). Even Syria refused to buy our Panthers while they bught all our Pz.IV and StuG.III instead. That covers just our country but it's still telling. 
     
    T-34 keep fighting in Yemen and Africa in 2020... 
     
    Aaaand... Rusia built a whole new T-34 batallion in 2020

    I didn't know that but one of the IS-2 of Lešany muzeum (4 pieces) is actually an early IS-122 with screw breach and thinner frontal armor. The tank went through many battles including Odra-Vistula offensive and Prague operation. After the war it was used by Czechoslovak army till 1949. It spent most of its life as a memorial in Přelouč town but in 1990 it was moved to muzeum and in 2014 restored to working condition. 
     
    Photos including some curious details from the restoration (like broken torsion bar) are here. 
     
    The tank can be seen moving for example in this video @ 19:00 and 19:55.

    It's one of four "T-80UDs" (actually T-84s or something close to that) that were supplied to the US by Ukraine. They arrived at Aberdeen in Dec 2003, first publicly shown in the summer of 2004...

    It's ironic knowing that the Challenger 1 was derived from a tank designed for operating in the desert.

    Scolopax reacted to Marsh in New book by the late Richard Ogorkiewicz   
    Hi,
    Just a head's up of a new book just published by the Tank Museum at Bovington. It is Richard Ogorkiewicz's autobiography which he had just completed before his death and which was brought to publication thorough the determination of David Willey, Curator of the museum. I received the book out of the blue  as a gift, through I think, the good offices of 
    Richard's wife. The book is entitled "Observer of Cold War tank development", it is 78 pages long and richly illustrated and is full of interesting facts and personal anecdotes. 
    Once available for general sale, it looks likes it will be a purchase well made.
    Cheers
    Marsh
