re: Russia Unveils New Main Battle Tank, Among Other Things - Darth_Vader
[quote]NATO nations still have F-16's right???? More numbers does not mean better more effective in battle. This is modern warfare [/quote] If you're going to use an example of "modern warfare" the F16 is a poor choice. It's a 1970's era fighter that's totally outclassed by more modern ...

[quote]by the time they got to Germany their military would be stretched thin and their supply lines and support troops would be fighting for their lives vs the local forces. [/quote] Poland has a little over 100,000 active duty troops with about 1,000 tanks, 2,000 AFVs, 1,200 pieces of artiller...

[quote]And the Russians are an even smaller shadow of the USSR. Yes, NATO is smaller than it used to be, but Russia is much smaller. NATO forces are now better than Russia's both quantitatively and in quality. Tactically they would get their asses kicked.[/quote] It's like some of you are totally...

re: Russia Unveils New Main Battle Tank, Among Other Things - Darth_Vader
Hate to say, but Carriers would not be that useful in a war against Russia today. Look at the map and you'll see that if war was to come it would be primarily in Eastern Europe. For carrier air power to be effective they would have to operate in either the Baltic Sea or eastern Med where they would ...

[quote]Exactly. They're doing all this shite using a very outdated mindset. Future wars will be won with unmanned planes taking off from carriers, dropping computer controlled bombs/missles from 40,000ft. That ground defense will be scrap metal in about 15 minutes. If Russia is ever stupid enough to ...

[quote]Thanks like I stated earlier I'm no tank-ologist or anything like that it just seemed a bit smaller in comparison to the generic or highly televised tanks I have seen.[/quote] The one you're talking about is not actually a tank.

[quote]You really think their newest tank will compete with ours? [/quote] I served on the M1 & M1A1. At that time our main competition from the Soviets was the T-80, & T-72.
