Australians are preparing for battles with Russian armored vehicles

69
At one of the Australian military training grounds, the first static targets appeared in the form of Russian tanks T-80 and BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles.




In his comments on the published photos Rossiyskaya Gazeta notes that if the BMP-3 is made quite plausibly (although the infrared illuminator is marked on the wrong side), the creators of the tank did not pursue accuracy. The target contour from afar resembles the original, but the tower is clearly pumped up. The “Moon” illuminator is drawn on the left, and for some reason, the elements of the “Contact” dynamic protection are depicted from the back, which is not the case on real machines.



But, apparently, the manufacturers of high-similarity with the Russian technology and did not require, as long as the Australian crews are clearly aware of who is now their main opponent.

And yet the installation on the range of targets in the form of specific Russian military vehicles is surprising. It is unlikely that the military leadership of Australia seriously believes in the landing of the Russian troops. Most likely, this is a tribute to "fashion", the legislators of which are the United Kingdom and the United States.

At the same time, it should not be forgotten that the Australian Defense Forces, despite its name, lit up far from their native shores: together with the US Armed Forces, it participated in campaigns in Korea, Vietnam and Iraq. And last year, the media reported on the outrages of Australian soldiers in Afghanistan, where civilians were the victims.

Perhaps in the future, Canberra will not refuse to take part in one of the military adventures of Washington, which he declared the entire globe to be his zone of interests.

      Or maybe these are not Russian BMP models, but PLA? Here's a photo, appreciate the similarities. Australia is seriously preparing to protect its sea communications from China, conflicts on the islands in Oceania are not excluded, and finally the Chinese landing is also possible in the future, because its military power is growing as well as ambition for domination

        Australia has intense trade with China. Australia is a provider of diverse natural resources. And China is afraid of losing this channel - it will not quarrel with Australia.

          Reich and I also had intensive trade. This did not stop the war. China can replace resources in Africa and South America.
          here are the facts ---
          March 9, 2016 | Geopolitics |
          ... In turn, J. Bishop said that China and Australia are successfully cooperating in the field of trade and security issues, and that the two countries plan to conduct joint military exercises. However, just a week later, the Australian leadership issued statements that received a negative assessment of China. So, on February 25, Malcolm Turnbull spoke about Australia’s plans to significantly increase its military budget and strengthen the fleet’s combat effectiveness to protect its interests in the Asia-Pacific region. It was openly said that this is being done in connection with the increase in the military power of the PRC. In addition, M. Turnbull expressed support for Australia's military presence in the Asia-Pacific region, which the Australian Prime Minister called "Australia's most important strategic partner." According to him, the US military maintains stability in the region. It is difficult to say how much stability in the region now depends on the United States, whose influence there is weakening every year. However, the Australian leadership clearly outlined its position. Perhaps it is precisely with the weakening of the American presence that Australia's desire to strengthen its own armed forces is connected. Canberra also once again gave a negative assessment of the actions of the PRC in the South China Sea.

        Indonesia has advanced economically and has become a serious force only in the last 20 years.
        Before that, they had conflicts of this kind: Indonesians quietly landed on the desert northern coasts of Australia and founded villages.
        If they were not quickly discovered, then later on - the natives became Australians.
        Australia is investing heavily in patrol aircraft and the navy.

            Housing is more expensive yes. Approximately comparable to Moscow. But the level of salaries is not comparable.
            Food is cheaper, education in general is better, about oncology it would be better not to lie. The level of knowledge of English is important only when obtaining citizenship. For 4 required years of residence, he will in any case be excellent. And you are very mistaken about the second grade. This is a very tolerant country for all.
            Such is the lack of freedom that the Russians go to Australia, and the Australians for some reason are in no hurry to flee. Apparently someone is forbidding.

      They are just as healthy as bulls. Everything is practiced in sports for them - from children to senior citizens. Turned on it.
      And in shooting ranges they train en masse from rifles. Once, when they met Rommel in Africa, the Australians fled from the tanks (a curiosity!), But in skirmishes with Wehrmacht infantry they calmly prevailed: they fired at great distances and, more precisely.

    There is nothing surprising here where the Khazain seems (Zlobritska kruna) The Australians will go to war, and Russia has long been ordered from the Anglo-Saxons. Porosenko made this charade in Azov on the order of zlobrites, their TV crew from the BBC was beaten on a military boat and shot a video from the morning wound on Sunday. How did they get there early on Sunday morning, probably by accident. Look what the USA will do? In time, probably according to the US recipe, the beginning will be wired for democracy in Britain from the beginning, and then they will decide Piglet? They have already stepped over the border, and a war cannot be avoided if a friend insists that Stalin did not manage to avoid a war with Hitler, however much he tried, he just lost his potential ally and let Hitler take away his industrial resource in Europe for the war with the USSR. It seems that the preparation of the attack on Rossiu in the final phase from the beginning will take away total sanction. Therefore, Kudrin attacked Rogozin 5 and 6 columns work.
