    I like the Russian MSTA more, although I need to look at the parameters.

      Judging by the price, they were decommissioned in the last century.

    Z5 self-propelled guns, is that a reinforced division? I hope we have enough strength and means to suppress it, if necessary ...

      Maybe 4 batteries of 8 self-propelled guns + 3 self-propelled guns per training center? 10 BMUOs are then divided into 2 per battery (1 per fire platoon) + 2 per division (or 1 per division + 1 in CA).
      Because how to imagine the structure of "7 batteries for 5 self-propelled guns" or "5 for 7" I somehow do not really succeed ... I have not seen such a perversion. smile

    I hope that in the event of a conflict, Russia will immediately apply nuclear weapons against clusters of enemy troops, frying labuses and mattresses with streams of fast neutrons and gamma rays. No one should survive the war with the Russians! HEROSIMA and NIGERssaki did not become a lesson for Europeans, therefore it is we who are destined to repeat the American experience of admonishing the enemy.

      Yeah, and the fallout will fall on the territory of the Leningrad and Pskov regions. Nafig need. Better on the sly, 76 DSD will hijack this technique with the obscure letter Ö.

        With an air explosion, precipitation practically does not fall out, so you should not worry. The hydrogen bomb is much cleaner than the atomic bomb, because most of the energy released by the explosion is due to synthesis. Plutonium in the bomb is about 6 kg, so the amount of radionuclides is minimal.

          About the induced radiation, have not you heard?

            The induced radiation will remain on the territory of the enemy, so these are not our problems, but labuses.

        The radiation hazard of a "non-peaceful" atom is greatly exaggerated by "experts." In old ammunition of the implosive scheme, the mass of uranium-235 exceeded 30 kg, and the efficiency of the ammunition was quite low (4%). Two-stage thermonuclear warheads are very clean, unless, of course, they are used at too low a height.

          I support, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were rebuilt in the old places, because during air explosions there is no or little radioactive contamination of the area

    Yes, they do a pretty good job of themselves - they bought EU grants, the deadline for which is ending. Accordingly, money needs to be worked out somehow, now only with cannon fodder. But the Russians never come to war! laughing

    Beggars-sprats. The Yankees pushed their decommissioned equipment to the Austrians in the 70s of the 20th century, now the Austrians, after 40 years of operation, pushed the same decommissioned equipment to the sprats.

    The price corresponds to the cost of delivery of scrap metal, taking into account logistics costs ... well, the right people sawed off a piece of “lemons” repeat

    in case of “warming” of the cold war, it’s worth taking these cars in the park. otherwise they can do a lot of trouble.

    The transaction value amounted to 6 million euros (the price of one self-propelled guns is about 140 thousand euros).

    Sold at a good discount, for 35 pieces the price is cheap, some Mercedes and BMW are more expensive
