      Rather, they are going to flee at them, as safely as possible. It is unlikely that they will take Moscow.

      In general, it was more logical there to deliver the disarmament. Soviet armored personnel carriers, for example, or analogues produced in the former countries of the Department of Internal Affairs .. Well, well, you want the economy to fall, the Germans to help ..

      Two battalions of 44 cars each. To battalion 2 KShM. Everything is for science. Well, they drove two cars, so that the mechanics trained on the spot, well, those that will unload the train. So I wonder how to solve the problem? The response force of an anti-tank mine is 120 kg. Boxer has 4 tons per wheel. Well, how many mines will it take for each wheel? Or maybe a device like "Rake" to come up with? I ran into a rake, and they are on your roof a cumulative charge KZ-3 Fuyak!

    I liked the name: Iron Wolf Brigade! I am delighted. Immediately there were associations with the cartoon about Little Red Riding Hood - "These are teeth! Just lovely!"

    Although training, but a lot of glass. It can be said that the APC is walking. A brigade with such equipment may in the future be called the “iron caput”.

    All cheap vysery in the comments, as usual.
    BTR is one of the best in the world. And such training modifications would be useful to us.
