    And immediately buy in the sanitary option will be more expensive? Or, is there a big difference in the equipment that the Germans want to supply in comparison with the Swiss medical equipment?

      Yes, it’s so simple:
      It is reported that the Eagle 6x6 armored car is a triaxial version of the Eagle V 4x4 armored vehicles manufactured by General Dynamics European Land Systems-Mowag

      There was a good MPI with a 4x4 wheel formula. And then I had to do the same, but with mother of pearl buttons a couple of tons heavier. So they added another axis. Ours also do this.
      There is, for example, a good armored car KAMAZ-43269 "Shot"

      And then the manufacturer noticed that the military recently began to eat well and ceased to be compact and sawed off the triaxial version. True, she did not go into the series, but she looks decent.

    Do you think that Europeans needed to design and set up their own production of 80 nurses? Is it cost effective? ))))

    Biological weapons are more effective than nuclear missiles ... there is only one, but a significant drawback: it is not known where the wind will blow ...

      For a long time there are weapons operating on races. For example, it selectively affects people with black or yellow skin. Well, or white)))) At the same time, people with a different color are not affected .. The truth will hurt regardless of the state, They can hurt their own with the same skin .. But in recent years, the Americans have been actively buying blood for experiments exclusively by Slavs (Russians). Others were not interested. In Ukraine, donors donated a lot. After all, good money pays. They are trying to deduce the genotype there ...... Somehow.

      On April 27, 2020, the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the motorized rifle division of the 58th combined arms army deployed in Chechnya received new Lens armored ambulances. New armored vehicles are based on the Typhoon-K armored car. For the first time, a new ambulance car designed to evacuate the wounded from the battlefield was introduced in 2018 as part of the Army-2018 international military-technical forum.

    Why am I in spite? lol The fact that the 42nd MSD received these cars is pleasing, but I did not mean a single connection, but the department which has a large number of these MSDs, MSbr, and other parts. Simply put - is the RF Ministry of Defense going to buy these cars for supply according to the procurement plan in 2020 and subsequent years, or not? And do not pretend that you initially did not understand my question - did you decide to "repulse the agent of the State Department"? wassat Not looking there, bambino. bully
