"Let's follow Russia with its T-34": in the West they were surprised by the appearance of Comet A34 tanks at the parade in Myanmar

16

Moscow constantly attracts equipment that has proven itself in battles long past to celebrate Victory Day. The Russian example turned out to be contagious: the Myanmar military marched with a whole arsenal of vehicles from the Second World War at a parade timed to coincide with the Day of the country's Armed Forces.


Following Russia, which has been exhibiting its T-34s at the annual Victory Parade for several years in a row, Myanmar has connected various types of British armored vehicles to impressive celebrations.

- noted in the Western edition of Army Recognition.

As indicated, viewers delighted Tanks Comet A34, Bren armored personnel carriers, Humber armored vehicles (apparently MK IV models), Dingo reconnaissance vehicles and their post-war counterpart Ferret.

The technique was in its original state - it is a whole treasure; the cars seemed to have just been released

- appreciated in the West their appearance at the parade.

After independence was granted to Myanmar in 1948, an impressive arsenal of military equipment remained from the British army. However, for a long time, since the beginning of the 1990s, technology has hardly caught my eye, meeting only as monuments in public parks.

The appearance at the parade was a complete surprise

- Express in the West surprise at the "resurrection" of the Comet A34 tanks at the parade in Myanmar.

    The shooting is bad, I didn't really consider anything ...

    In my opinion, a great tradition!
    The difference is clearly visible.

    It's cool, of course, that they show "Komet" in Myanmar, but I want to say about our legendary T-34, this is of course respect for history, but the main thing for us is a symbol of Victory!

    Interesting parade. Good drill, even excellent drill, "English roots" are visible ... A huge variety of weapons from different countries, a lot of ours from the Kalashnikov assault rifle to D-30 howitzers, T-72B tanks, Mi-2, Mi-8 helicopters, Mi-24 and Yak-130, Su-27 aircraft ... But a lot of Chinese

      I thought the "comets" only remained in museums! And here it is .... Test. They know how to store equipment!

      The main thing is that the RUSSIAN tradition was adopted, and the five-pointed star

    The comet is still a cousin of T34 by origin))

      My minus. How, do not tell me? The A-34 project does not mean that the T-34 is taken as a basis.

        Of course it doesn't. They just have one great-grandfather - the Christie tank.

        You open Yandex and look for the history of the development of British cruiser tanks ... Then take the drawings of the Christie tank, T-34 and A-27 and look for similarities in the layout and chassis ...
        If you don't see it right away, look again ... With some differences, there is a common solution.

          except for the candle suspension (and the chassis is different) and the layout, nothing in common between the t34-85 (he is the same age) and the a34 did not see
          and so you can draw a related line to Renault :)

            Common - first of all, the ancestor and generic (from the ancestor) traits.
            And you can dig at least to anything - but to nothing.

    The comet is the direct predecessor of the Centurion. They are very similar.
    Britain's first truly successful tank.

      I agree, the "comet", of course, was late, but with it Britain caught up with the tank builders of other countries, and with the "centurion" it was already on an equal footing with the best. "Centurion" tank is beautiful, but it's like "Tupolev's about planes." I'm a fan of the T-44-100 and the IS-3, but I really like the Centurion's aesthetic too.
