The American army continues to fight with the "Russian tanks"


However, if in the years of the first cold war, real technology, produced in the USSR or the Warsaw Pact countries, came out against the American troops, now there are pitiful parodies based on American technology at the test site.

Something very strange based on M-113

“Of course, before that, there were imitations of enemy vehicles, made on the basis of M-551 Sheridan lightweight. But, we must pay tribute to the craftsmen, some running models made by Americans very strongly resembled real Soviet tanks, ”writes the author of the material Leo Romanov.

T-80UD running model

As the life of the real T-72 and Sheridan-based layouts was developed, the Americans had to use the M1 more and more. They began to mount blocks that simulate dynamic protection, installed mock-ups of the Luna spotlight, etc.

Currently, “either because of cost savings, or because of elementary laziness, the Abrams were minimally disguised as a potential adversary: ​​there are a couple of plates in the front of the tower with very similar plastic soap boxes,” the author notes.

Parody of the T-80

Behind the tower are visible fixed empty barrels, which should represent the equipment for underwater driving T-80.

The usual barrels are visible behind.

“All this is done, as they say, without a soul, more for show. Although they are talking about the second cold war, but so far, it seems, the US military does not believe that they will seriously have to face the Russian army, ”concludes the publication.

    Everything is going downhill. For the level of today's American commanders, these Pepelians look completely in Russian. I believe that earlier it was necessary to rely on a lively eye, and now on the lens. A piece of iron what a difference

      The publication wrote nonsense. Are such tanks armed only with the Russian army? In general, no. They were almost handed out to everyone in the eastern countries. Each tribe in Africa has Soviet tanks laughing .This is like AK 47 only in the world of technology - any Neanderthal has

        There are no 72s in WoT. let the Americans ask for potatoes to add. and there will be a full-fledged stimulant.
        and already, having money, all Russian tanks will end up with the purchased gold.
        laughter alone ...

        it’s just surprising that the “darkest” one calls them “partners” anyway ... who needs this? Yes, the enemies are already, on all fronts, and we must proceed from this. then the people will understand that the rent is a third of the pension, needed for defense, why bother with the soul? Do they consider people stupid or something (and they’ll undress their oligarchs, to our level, the GDP council) - otherwise they don’t pull a damn on Minin and Pozharsky .

    But I don’t see a reason for ridicule, we also need to learn to fight with them ... When I was in the service of the sovereign, we played 7 dozen training alarms a day ... We studied, you understand ... We learned, as a result, all the time were ready to withstand to the best of their ability the Armada of NATO ......

      .In my tenure in the service of the sovereign, we played 7 dozen training alarms for a day ... We studied, you know

      in my service, in the GSVG, each “anxiety” forced nature to shrink to incredible proportions, because there were constant provocations, and we always lived in “standby mode”, even reaching the point that the ammunition was filled to the limit after training firing, which they say it wasn’t before - the "horns" were empty. "anxieties" froze "definitely, they worked like robots already, now I’m surprised myself, and already 40 years have passed. Now I understand that there wasn’t any more fighting force than the army in Europe, we really held everyone to the" eggs "... eh ...

    Probably a movie is shot about the victory over Russia and the medals for courage are given out. It’s also interesting what our liberals will say.

    Well, they are at war ... and with whose tanks they still have to fight? Wherever you look, in any conflict, the Americans fought in countries that purchased our weapons. Karl’s weapons ... but not people. If they wanted a war with Russia, they would have to put Russians at the helm and leverage.

    So they practice maneuvering. No shooting. After all, on tanks
    "enemy" their tank crews. When they practice firing, there is
    old T-55, T-62 as targets.
    I saw such "targets" of the T-54 with us. Poor unrequited, wounded in a sieve

        But I don’t understand what for such a reality of purpose.
        Once, when I was a cadet, I had the honor to participate in very large exercises conducted by Commander-in-Chief Sukhov of the Ivanovo troops, and according to the scenario there was an offensive of a motorized rifle division reinforced by a tank regiment with assault aviation and helicopters on the US 86th division in defense angry It was finally awesome and no matter what the targets were our T10 and old Soviet-made armored personnel carriers.
        Haha, what’s most interesting, all this happened in Zakarp VO at the Yavoriv training ground not far from Lviv and the Stryi division was advancing, reinforced by a tank regiment from Slonim yes
        Damn what would these mental memories
