Korean surprise: what the new Panther Seoul tank is capable of

      interesting "cat" ... although the variable ground clearance, with a weight of 55t, clearly reduces the reliability of the suspension.

        This is not a "variable clearance", it is a semi-active suspension. And, in fact, its main function is to reduce vibrations during movement.
        Therefore, it is very promising. Especially when you take into account the direct road to the transition to an active suspension, the hardware is actually everything, all that remains is to work out the road condition sensors and the control system

        Well, the ability to change the position of the hull of the tank relative to the surface of the earth is secondary. Although it also gives an advantage to the tank. And in terms of mobility and in terms of security.

        The tower resembles Object 490 of the late 80s of the USSR.

        But if the gun was finished then hold on ...
        In addition, the designers planned to install the experimental 2-mm smoothbore gun developed by the German company Rheinmetall as the main weapon of the K140 tank, but this also had to be abandoned. One of the reasons was the requirement to maximize the use of only proprietary technologies

          Volkswagen, in addition to the production of cars there are several factories for the production of auto components.
          Bosch also built his auto parts factory.

            I didn’t hear, although I myself work in this concern ... if this is so, then the Germans will monitor quality control, which will be at the German stopudovo level, and the Chinese today have pulled themselves up in good quality, it’s not always true, but well done anyway, by the way Chinese smartphones are right now in the top sellers in Germany.

              There are already seven Volkswagen plants, two models that I met completely for my market do it Santana 2000 and Golf-3. The rest of the parts are sent worldwide where there are WAG assembly plants.

              The most interesting thing is the Chinese specifics. Around the main legal plant with foreign capital, not large enterprises are already built with Chinese capital that are engaged in impudent copying, perhaps not from the main plant, they push the marriage to them and they collect them at home, and so on. difference in quality and price.

    Well, there was a squeal ... It's a super tank, a killer of super tanks. A tank that drives along a slope. The usual armor trash turns out. In general, the impression is that the military cannot afford the new military toys. Our tanks and planes were also slowed down in large quantities to buy.

    These naturalizations are the result of the basic law of capitalism - the desire for maximum nailed. We need to take the money as much as possible and the dates the consumer cost as little as possible. For this purpose, you need to use the media for the masses, which give the new product miraculous abilities and a bribe for the right people.
