    Whether they are long-livers or are they modernized, they carry scrap metal to our borders.

    Logically, they bring the park under a single platform. Whatever they say about the Finns, but they know how to count public money and do not squander in vain

      This is exactly what one would expect from the Finns. For the Finnish armored vehicles began with junk (they wrote off the T-26 only in the early 60s!), Trophy and fierce shushpanzer building.

        Well, the T-26 was written off, so they did not plan to fight until that moment ... and now hot Finnish guys and troops are increasing by 50 thousand and they are buying self-propelled guns and in general they will arm themselves ...

    A Bergepanzer 2 to cope with Leo 2? Will you have enough strength?

    Comrades, don't judge them harshly. We ourselves are still running engineering equipment based on the T-55 and on the basis of the ATT tractor (on the units and assemblies of the same tank). I'm not saying it's good. But it normal.
