      This regiment has gone through all the "hot spots" of recent decades. No need to give up valiantly. You just need to understand that in this regiment there are 5000 people, 123 Abrams tanks, 114 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles and 80 armored personnel carriers, which after the Christmas holidays will be replaced by 86 Striker vehicles. Which - none, but on the roads that can reach Moscow. Otherwise, fuck - rena they are being taken to Europe? Need to prepare.

      Oh yeah in the figs of these of your reporters.
      When I worked. In GD ... we made pyrnies 3 this was in the 8th year and piranha is an analogue of a striker, by the way it is worse than piranha 3. Already then piranha 5 was produced by prototypes for the British for testing with a 30mm gun (suppliers from Israel) by the way, the microfonon tracks in the darkness a heart beat of 3-5 meters in standby mode, it’s better not to sneak up on the heart itself and crash, one of our mechanics who gave the party to Belgians went for a smoke almost got out of it when the muzzle was aimed at him and the shutter clicked, the gun was gone charged, and with a 100mm cannon, sampling was also carried out.
      Since 10 years have passed already.
      This is all there is just here such a machine is 2-3 million worth, who has a denyushki there and create one. Inside there is one leather and at least 3 minotors, a motor from the driver’s right, a driver’s seat behind the motor from the right, plus seats for 8 fighters, armor plates can also be different thicknesses from 10 to 50 mm thick and are screwed with screws, I’ve joked that it is possible to glue rubber sheets between sheets of armor and hard springs under the screws so that small bullets and fragments bounce off.

    I do not understand something:

    Cavalry, cavalry - a type of army in which a horse was used to conduct combat operations and / or movement. Possessing high mobility and maneuverability combined with a swift and powerful blow, cavalry played a decisive role in many battles.

      the horses are gone, but the name remains, well, really not to disband - the banner is not lost. The names of the horses smoothly pass to tanks and infantry fighting vehicles

      These are historical names, here you understand. This is accepted in the armies (in most normal). This is where Wikipedia drop, and think personally. A well-deserved title in a battle is simply not given or transferred, even if from that time cavalrymen moved to tanks a long time ago (these units once really fought well and earned the right to be different from others). In our troops, the ranks of the formations were given by the names of the captured (liberated) cities, towns, forced rivers. The proud title won in battle, the banner or distinction deserved in battles among all equals - it is impossible to take away or give away.

        In normal armies, it is just customary to do reformation with a simultaneous change of names, but preservation of ranks won in battles, such as Mariupol, etc.
        It is in the colonial armies that they still think that around them are blacks with spears, and they are white "civilizers" ..

      From the name “Cavalry” the erroneous opinion went that the Polish soldiers tried to attack the fascists in armor on horses with sabers back in 1939. In fact, these were tank troops. There were horses, but mostly like draft power. In general, the novel said correctly66 - the horses left, but the name remained.

            We already have a module like on a BTR-82A with ATGM, judging by how recently the truck got stuck in them)) the striker only needs to drive on new asphalt

        I saw nothing but the ability to ride and shoot.

        But here, slow-mo, and the projectile flies beautifully, and it’s just as beautifully sucked back into the barrel, Holim Hollywood, I laughed so much))

        In general, there is only one conclusion - only in combat is military equipment tested, and nothing else. And the video is window dressing, and base.

    Quickly they cooked it up however. Ours are longer, no, well, they do much longer. There is already a whole line of similar equipment based on Boomerang. True only on paper, but there is. When will we start to do this?

      No equipment will help them if they are not trained to ride on the road and navigate the terrain.
