    In pursuit of fashion! Striikin, Boomerang, Patriots, as they say find 10 differences! 32 tons of 8 wheels, is it necessary to calculate how much ento will be on one wheel? Yeah - 4 tons. So it means - it won’t go on sand, it won’t go on arable land, it will fail on a wet meadow, it will be sanded on wet clay. Hooray ! Let them do it for internal use. Yes enta gun with a bolt frame like AKM and a feeder like a pump-action shotgun. We know, exploited.

    Not so bad. Right there’s a parade of wheeled armored infantry fighting vehicles recently and the trend of armament for armored personnel carriers is 30 mm and sometimes more.

    Front link rods are visible.
    Something everything in Europe is incubator - BTRs are similar to each other
    And then the Slovaks (like the Czechs) will give all this good to the “new Hitler” whom Obama threatened.
