      Why buy revenge if the coalition is being completed, why buy 90m if the armata is being completed, is it better to keep the babosiki or speed up the introduction of new equipment

        And why give up the proven reliable old for the sake of new prodigies that have not proved themselves? This is a very correct decision to upgrade the available equipment to the maximum.
        The new 2S19 Msta-S modification and the updated T-90M fully meet the requirements of the time, no worse than Western models, they will form the basis of the troops for at least another 20 years. At the pace how this happens, when they bring it to mind and launch new equipment in the BIG series, it is not known. And to have a combat-ready army you need this hour.

        My dear, rumors about the super capabilities of new products are always very exaggerated. Moreover, any of the most wonderful weapons require time to master in parts. Give a bad sniper a wonderful rifle, and there will be no result. Therefore, a modernized weapon in skillful hands is a very formidable force.
