Re: MBT's

Turkey OOB32:

39 Leopard 2T (aka NG): judging from a date, it should be in service for several months. I could not find any info in the net, that they were completed (or even ordered as for now)....

Re: Poland OOB

A look back explained, that it first was a speculative tank with missiles. Therefore it should be named just Leopard 2A4 (or A4+, like unit 022) (or other name to indicate HE ammo). BTW, HE ammo was...

Re: Problems with the current Russian OOB (#11).

Re: Tank machine guns

I'm not insisting on anything, but it always puzzled me: why BMGs have such poor range comparing to TMGs?.. The tankettes are handicapped this way. Maybe they could get TMGs?...
