      Well, they would say bluntly ... an American company organized the assembly of armored vehicles in the most powerful (after Ukraine of course) European country and sold it its own armored vehicles .. smile

        Such a normal move: they will get a denyuzhku, and if something is wrong - "so you yourself collected them." lol And where will the Romanian Soviet armored vehicles go? Dill? wink

          Rather, the Moldavians, they are now closely friends. The language has become common even.

        Romanians are doing the right thing. Jobs, taxes, benefits remain in the country. And the Piranha is a great car! By the way, Romanians are not gypsies.

          Interestingly, there will be many jobs from a screwdriver assembly? But to conduct acceptance tests of the resulting threshing floor will not work ...

          Ask the gypsy who he is. He will answer that the novel (Romanian is a remake of the same word). So it's quite a gypsy, though settled.

            Do not fool people, Romanians are Romanians, and settled cygans - Sinti-Roma are called in Europe, at least.

    Judging by the photographs, this is not a "piranha", but a hippo. Strange desire for the height of the hull. The Americans are well traced back with the M-113.

      Yes indeed. Why such high cars? On the armor, it will now be more dangerous to ride. request

      The Americans introduced this fashion after the wars with partisans, in which there is little ATGM, and the main danger is mines from fertilizers ... they think that the higher they climb, the safer.

        Physics, as it were, confirms their thoughts. Something there with a fourth degree distance in the denominator ... wink

    If they collect “Piranhas” with the same quality as the “Romanians” -70s, the banner is in their hands. Tormented with them at one time ...

    I’m embarrassed to ask, where will the Soviet armored vehicles go after decommissioning?

      it depends on how much they’ve gone ... in Africa, for example, there are enough people who want to get at least some working equipment for little money.

    The “heroic” Romanian army decided to transfer from gypsy cabs to Swiss multi-wheeled ramps. To roam, so to roam.
