Fallout Re: MBT's

The following are to be an update and FYI future.
issue.

1) T-14 further confirmation that the T-14 won't be operational until earliest 2018+ and second ref. acts as an updated tech/data for the T-14 which makes this the second or third update thus far. Still showing as a prototype tank.
"What makes the 2018-2027 armaments program so special is the conversion of experimental products still in the testing phase into serial ones. This applies to Armata, the T-14 main battle tank, the frontline aviation system (T-50/PAK-FA - Mine), the new generation long-range aircraft and many other items, he said. (Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin - Mine)"

2) T-90S Looks like Russia is finally going to sell this tank to Iraq in the near future. Good thing we didn't sell them our top tier ABRAMS now that the Russians are "nosing" around. The contract is now in the implementation phase.

3) Well we'll likely not see this game wise even if it does get done as currently planned, but India has apparently woken up to the fact they can't do the multi-purpose Future Ready Combat Vehicle (FRCV) on their own. That's progress for them. Theirs LONG been distrust from the Army concerning DARDO their developmental group that produced the ARJUN MkI and soon the MkII tanks. Notice who one of the four they're interested in is. as recently discussed in my last above.

4) BTR-60PB - Concerning the ref. below, the information concerning the use of the T-54A is incorrect. There is no record of them (Cuba) receiving the T-54 in any variant. They did receive the following from the SIPRI database from the Soviet Union (Yes they make that distinction from Russia.)
(25) T-55 Tank O-1981 D-1981 (25) Second-hand; incl some T-54T ARV That was the last T-55 shipment to Cuba.

Also while I'm on it this is the other BTR-60 variant Cuba received...
(10) BTR-60P APC O-(1984) D-1985-1986 (10) BTR-60PU-12 CP version; for use with 9K35 (SA-9) SAM systems

Other tanks ordered were the IS-2/SU-100/T-34/85/PT-76 and as also already mentioned the T-62 as ordered in 1984 and delivered btwn 1984-1988 (Last and final shipment to Cuba from the Soviet Union. With NONE from Russia.)

Fallout Re: MBT's

I wouldn't think it much matters(?) game wise in terms of how many of the Cromwell tanks could've been reused after the "Battle of Happy Valley" since it appears the ones they got had successfully been attacked by the use of pole charges by the Chinese.
At best I wouldn't think more than a handful (Though one below suggests 12 were reused.), but what an interesting piece of history that as these articles suggest has been forgotten about on the other side "of the pond" as well. In order of mentioning the CROMWELL tanks specifically...
https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/s...-28506063.html
From the next...
"Some saw service in the Korean War with the 7th RTR and the 8th King’s Royal Irish Hussars." Also the mod section shows a CROMWELL of 1950 in the 7th RTR paint scheme.

Taken from the above...

If I may...
It seems that what I had onboard was "disrupted" enough to have been rendered dead by my security protocols, well pretty much anyway and it wasn't going anywhere. But not wanting to show up on the search for this culprit on this site, as happened to one of our long time contributors, I for my piece of mind and if needed here should my IP Address had of come up as well, spent $150.00 (So Merry Christmas to my PC!) to be sure, my protocols were good resulting in no malicious malware or viruses. Just some registry issues that needed some attention that were starting to cause some very minor performance issues (Need to get a better Registry Cleaner I suppose.) Got other things done for the price as well hardware wise etc. Bottom-line well worth the price of being a good citizen on this forum.

So to everyone that reported this issue my thanks as it made me more aware of mine!

Andy and Don what more needs to be said, but, thanks again for keeping use in the loop and making my PC happy with it's Christmas present though, early!?!

Mr. Brooks I haven't forgotten your wonderful staff and your personal involvement a handful of years back in taking care of me that allowed me to "Get BACK IN THE GAME " That being said it's hard enough in this business (Or any now.) competitive as it is, to deal with something like this out of nowhere, so again I have the pleasure to thank your staff and you for doing all that could've been done to make things right again in our world.

It's a good day when I can use some "Smilies"!!

Regards,
Pat
