The next stage of state tests of a light floating tank "Sprut-SDM1" was held in the Black Sea and was recognized as a success. The machine showed the ability to overcome water obstacles in rough seas of up to 3 balls, to carry out targeted shooting afloat and easily go to an unprepared shore.

In addition, the new aircraft for the Airborne Forces was tested in central Russia and in the subtropics, where the temperature reached +40, confirming the characteristics laid down in it. The next stage of state tests, which will begin at the beginning of next year, will be testing "Sprut-SDM1" in low temperatures.

State tests of the Sprut-SDM1 light amphibious tank intended for the Airborne Forces began in August 2020 and will last a year and a half. According to the results of state tests, design documentation will be approved with the assignment of the letter "O1", which will allow the start of serial production.

            So they think about them, and not least - they are just potential customers such as Indonesia, Malaysia or the Philippines. I think it is correct that we returned to the concept of anti-tank weapons with a reserve for the future, only we, by and large, do not really need it, we are at a higher level of armaments.

      This means that it will suit not only the Airborne Forces, but also the marines.

        The car is being prepared for the Marines, first of all, it has been serving there for a long time and everything is okay, and in general the Marines are cooler than the landing force, but there are few of them, but they have been wearing vests for 300 years !!!

      It's all about the angle from which to view the situation. If from the position of an infantryman of the deep rear, then it will be a "pleasant" surprise for him to find at his side the enemy armored vehicles with such a non-childish caliber. In other words, it is better to have such a landing and amphibious tank / self-propelled gun (such as a Colt and a good word) than none at all, just because the enemy is armed with a grenade launcher or something like that. And to talk about the obvious insufficient security of the dropped equipment is something like grinding water in a mortar.

          No, I personally have nothing against you (honestly). Just trying to figure out some of the statements, what would that? To fill in stripes from scratch and what type of did they not forget that you are here?

            has a base underneath. BUT, to destroy well-protected equipment, much heavier than an amphibious tank and .... so on.
            Nobody wrote anything new, everyone appreciates ... in short, this is no longer a technical dispute, but a personal perception.
            Also, for stripes ... but where should I sculpt them then? there is nowhere else.
            I got hooked on the tank / theme .... I had to, I had to, where I served there were such. soldier
