          Israel participates in only one competition - "Field Kitchen" will probably show all other participants how to cook matzo properly lol
          It’s a pity there is no competition - “Military economist” there your Israel would definitely win lol

            Well, they still have aces-pilots with experience in air battles and shot down planes. Maybe we will learn from the Jews how to fill up the “invincible stratospheric” MiG-25, or to land an F-15 with one plane? They studied their tactics in schools of the USSR, and that's okay. Bragging is not the best quality of a person.

              Well, what about your vaunted Israeli aces then did not come to the 2017 ARMY, or did they decide that they had "not enough skill"? lol
              So, before telling us various unconfirmed rumors about the “one wing” and how you purely by chance the MIG-25 “failed” it would be better to come and show what you can. Unless of course you can do something.

            Padded jacket and venerable comrades. Even if Israel participates in one discipline, that’s good. If you recall that in the army games who participated immediately? And now South Africa has been added, and this is a "superpower of the regional spill."
            I’m not sure that I’ll find these games on TV (the Star should show) is not known as work, etc., but because: venerable moderators, we are waiting for reports!

              The Israeli team most likely didn’t come with the task of participating in contests but “to eavesdrop and peep”

    Now, if the Americans, Deutsch, French, Britons, Jews, Yap, Koreans (right) would come, and, necessarily, everyone on tanks of his own production! Such a biathlon would be watched with pleasure! And what do you see how Laos competes with Uganda and everything on our technology?

      Petty Officer irazum, “how Laos compete with Uganda and everything is on our technology” is also worth a look: what Ugandans or Kazakhs are capable of with Belarusian. The main thing is not technology, but people. Perhaps next time the same Israelis themselves will compete in several disciplines.

    On the one hand, it’s interesting to see how tanks drive and shoot. On the other hand, they cannot be called “games,” people die in weapons from wars, and are seriously wounded and injured.

      in games, not only tank biathlon. 28 contests. and why do you compare army games with wars? for that matter, wars are different_ acupuncture, liberation. what do you mean? army games, the same training with exercises, only with the spirit of competition and prize.

      It seems to me not a very right approach. It is possible to send a pintle or a stick to the next world. A man always cripples, and not a knife, spear or tank. Now in the Olympic disciplines, spears are thrown and fenced, but this weapon killed so many and overkilled any tank or a cannon and never dreamed.

        That's right! I propose to ban athletics, fencing, boxing, wrestling, all game team sports (especially football). Sport came to us from ancient times, as a slightly theatrical interpretation of military applied exercises and competitions. All life is a game, and also and war, unfortunately ... And the game is a very necessary element in preparation for the war and the war itself takes place in a tough game rhythm (the highest tension of physical and mental efforts). Is it moral? Yes, let every nation support their army in these games , an extra positive in life will not hurt. All the same, politics, when necessary, will solve everything for all of us. Since ancient Greece, nothing has changed, because the surrounding world is formed by human instincts (and they are known to remain stably unchanged). Scientific and technological progress True, he took a wide step (already beyond the limits of the Solar System). But all these machines are controlled by the same vicious and greedy to all alien, dense monkey.
        P.S. Only if at the beginning of its journey the upright primate had a spear in its paws, now it has an atomic trigger at its disposal. Then all the mammoths on the planet cried and perished. It is interesting who will cry this time.
