Fallout Re: MBT's

I was looking in to see what was going on, looked at my account, explored the site and then decided to look in on the stats section that I literally haven't done in many years and was deeply affected by what I saw. When I started this thread (And the others.) it was my intention at the time it would start my deeper involvement in these wonderful games (Especially WinSPMBT) by at first just "reporting" on equipment developments etc. Of course they all have gone beyond that now. I never thought it would generate the various discussions of all kinds that have been had on here or the others.

I took a few minutes to let what I saw soak in, and what it meant at it's core to me.

I wear my emotions on "my sleeve" (Something CINCLANTHOME has always "appreciated" these almost 30yrs.) and am proud of that. So please with no replies, thanks or similes (Don really dislikes them!?!).

Know that to everyone out here I feel honored, grateful, gratified but mostly deeply humbled by you allowing me to do what I do and by the support given to carry on out here whether we agree or disagree with each other.

Thank You All.

And good night.

Regards,
Pat


I figured I better put a tank "something" out here so I don't get in too much trouble for the above. Post #1 dealt with the Russian BLACK EAGLE so now I leave you with a legendary and newly revived Russian Tank Army...

And you can bet the West was excited by that!?!

What I find interesting is that we get a little better picture of what tanks the Russians have in storage and that the T-80 tanks are in service (There was a lot of discussion whether they were or not in the field or in storage.) which has been verified. It should be noted that the Ukrainians took their T-80BW tanks out of storage last Spring and they to are in the field now as well with their ERA upgraded to the KONTAKT 5 which is what the OPLOT has, and much better than what it had before. Also there upgrades made to the power-plants and possibility the FCS however that has not been confirmed. And as an adjunct to my last post, the Russians are in the process of standing up a new infantry and heavy mechanized division in the Southern Military District.

Note: The immediate above ref. refers to "rumors" concerning the T-72 return to service, that has since been long confirmed and has been posted on already. However if you missed it below are one of my refs. on it.

Hi Pat keep it up your our "deep miner" find stuff many of us wouldn't, I follow this religiously but don't post often. Its an information thread and in most cases we just need to let you run with it to get to the bottom of things so no need for "filler" from me.

Fallout Re: MBT's

John,
Thank you! You, my Marine buddy and that Canadian guy have been there from the very start supporting and challenging me along with the original "MRAP gang". There have been others (Thank You as well.) the ones I really liked digging into were the requested ones in that period 3-5 years ago I found those to be most rewarding. Speaking of which that Canadian guy can find some answers to his question I missed in the SPA/SPAA Thread in the APC Thread.

Better put a tank something in again there was some discussion on these "somewhere" and I don't believe I posted this there. Point is these were a "little more" wide spread then was discussed in where ever "somewhere" was. So this was my quick search result...

Since when is a Kangaroo classified as a "tank"?

One would think after all the research you've done you'd know what a "tank" is by now.

Squids ...

This should be moved to the APC thread!

Fallout Re: MBT's

Well let's see how nimble I can be of foot...
A. It has tracks and armor, doesn't it!?!

B. The already modified KANGAROO could be modified into a tank-right?

C. Aaahhh Yyuupp you might have a point there.

D. Both A and B.

Well as we used to say "When in doubt, Charlie out!". Well that doesn't help me here either now does it?

So much for being nimble but then I do wear a size thirteen boot.

Thank You Suhiir!

Regards,
Pat
There will be no "Captain" here tonight just another... !

I rather expect that sort of thing from a civilian, according to most of them the M16A1 is a machine-gun since it's capable of full-auto.

It's that time of the year again!

Victory Day Parade first open rehearsal 11th April 2016 in Alabino - first photos.
------------------

No top down photos, but the 3/4 perspective stuff is useful, in that it can show what's normally concealed by turrets, etc on the hull.
