I don't think you quite understand.

Another thing that needs to be looked at is the ammo density for some Russian stuff -- look at the BMP-3/BMP-4 and BMD-3/BMD-4.

They have about 35-40 x 100mm rounds plus 500-600 30mm rounds.

Re: Jack-In-The-Box

Russian tanks are very dense and compact -- there's not a lot of room for an incoming round to go that doesn't hit something important.

Re: Ukraine 2021(?)

I think a bit more explanation is needed here.



This explains why no EW war in Ukraine -- the Russians need commercial 3G/4G bandwidth to run the ERA cryptophones.
