    Well, only the Ukrainian BTR-3 was not enough for Thailand for complete happiness. In general, as the character of one film said: "... I doubt it, however ..."

          "Oplots" were supposed to be shipped back in April, but he didn't hear anything. Yes, and the Thais do not throw it. But what a palette on one wheelbase!

    not all polymers, you see, Ukrainians pissed.

    I don’t even know whether to be happy or sad) It’s more likely to be happy that when we take Ukraine back, at least some industrial scraps remain

      Thailand is a rich country. They say they finance the export version of the Sapsan IFRK - Grom-2, which will be supplied to them only as an OTKR.

    it’s a little unclear why sculpt anti-tank weapons on an armored personnel carrier? This is not a BMP.

      Why wheeled tanks when there is MBT? Each product has its own customer. Why an armored personnel carrier cannot fight tanks. Moreover, ATGMs have both thermobaric and high-explosive warheads against enemy manpower. We do not know the whole concept of its use by the royal army of Thailand.
