      all this is wonderful, just interesting, but where can tanks drive in Laos ??? and in general why do they need tanks, along the way, the Hohemians in that region pile up anyone with tanks and without tanks, the campuche seems to have gotten used to it like Thailand. Soon, men will not be left to cut off all the letters. chasing the drug dealers on tanks is a disastrous thing, wondering why they need tanks ???,

        Chasing them is not necessary, after a hundred years in the same condition we will be returned to us and we will chase them at parades.

      panoramic device for the commander of the vehicle PKP-72 "Falcon Eye" with a third-generation thermal imager

      Why don't we put a "panorama" on our T 72B3 ??! we could do it for a foreign customer - it didn’t work for ourselves.
