      In vain the cannon was removed .... it turns out that he can only work from the rear, under the guise of his troops. On the one hand, it’s good that it will not go into battle, but on the other hand, it is defenseless if it is discovered.

        Where did they remove it from? All PRPs, starting with the Soviet "Val", which they began to develop in 1963, had only PKT as weapons. Which with great difficulty managed to stick into the tower 8))) There is simply no place for any guns.

        The gun is at the intelligence, on the BRM-1K. A PRP is artillery intelligence.

    And what is the point of this frank junk on such forums to show? A likely adversary to make laugh?

    The concept itself is outdated. At the same time, for some reason, intelligence gets quite normal complexes, and the artillerymen are shoved this misunderstanding, passing it off as "the latest weapons." The most unpleasant thing is that this car is very, very expensive.

    It is not known what the battle will be and what equipment will be effective in it.
    It’s a very serious machine that can give a picture of the battle and all the threats. + Developers, now the volumes are needed by + the authors. Do not pay attention to the lobbyists of your selfish interests.

      Quote: PKK
      which will be able to give a picture of the battle and all the threats

      She won't give anything. Not a "picture of the battlefield", much less "ALL threats". Because it has only one, with a rather narrow observation channel.
      Not only that, if the machine, for example, is reconnaissance at a distant frontier, then at this time you can calmly approach it, open the hatch and drop a couple of grenades there. In the tower, a suitable person will not even be noticed.
      The situational awareness of the commander is near-zero.
