    Photo 6. A vivid example of the fact that disorder and sloppiness have no national sign. There is an instruction, but it can be violated, because "once tried and rolled ...". It is possible, of course, that the tankers did not wait for the engineering services because of danger and they did not have a gas shield (it is doubtful that such equipment was carried with them), but still you had to think with your head ...

        I would also add a hackneyed expression about the report to American taxpayers, like look here where your money goes. And American taxpayers like to ask such a question.

          Oh, here they are generally beyond praise. As far as I know, they publish and publish in the public domain an annual book that describes which enterprises and what specifically they produced in the reporting period for the army. From F-35 starting and ending with uniforms. At the same time, focusing on new designs.
          In addition, there is an annual "Army Weapon System" describing the latest weapons and military equipment coming into service, and in development, i.e. what is delivered to the troops and what is planned. By the way, if possible, I would like to look at the translations of sections from this collection.

          Well, in general in the USA they practice the so-called "Tiger flights" or "Tiger Cruise" according to theirs. This is when relatives and friends of team members are invited to board and a couple of days watching how they defend their homeland. For example, this flight is currently operated by the AUG Dwight D. Eisenhower, during which demonstration flights, a picnic on the deck, and two conversations with the ice-cream commanders are carried out.

      They have a little different from ours. There are plenty of bases and allies, go to any Kanareevka, you’ll be welcomed everywhere with dollars! It’s time for vacation, I got on a plane in the nearest port and to the States, reversed. My wife can also fly if she wants to the port of call.

              Probably reluctance to spend the resources of a real tank, they use "cardboard" ones. I wonder why they do not allow reservists to ride? (Question for the "Professor").

              At the expense of 100%, they are right + it’s cheaper to drive a jeep than a real tank, but the question is why do they call three of the 4 crew members for tactical training and give them a hamer with a driver? It is with the driver, not the driver? Your driver does not know how to drive a jeep? lol

                  Taki Oleg, I’m supposed to get rid of it. I am not aware of all the subtleties of fees in the Israeli army ...

                  You are not in the subject, it’s better not to touch the girls in the army, they will put them in prison. crying

                  So be it, I will tell you a military secret. Girls drive cars more accurately than boys, do not scorch, do not engage in phallometry in front of each other and do not scatter. The army came to the conclusion that the equipment lasts longer and breaks less (again money) when it is driven by drivers, not drivers. Such a layout. hi

                    It may be that in Israel, the girl at the wheel doesn’t scamper and don’t scatter ... And the Nashen’s would have driven this very “Hammer” like Sivka Gorka for a long time ... wink

      This is the M113 with a fake cannon, depicting a tank in exercises.

      We now perceive all the articles of the professor Professor, as an exceptional puppet wiring?
      I wish to see a motivated response from the author with clarifications.

        Probably reluctance to spend the resources of a real tank, they use "cardboard" ones. I wonder why they do not allow reservists to ride? (Question for the "Professor").
