  • Russian Military Promo Videos

    This may be old news to some of you, but I came across this interesting web site for russian export weapons.

    Check out the promotional videos of some of the equipment offered.

    Now if only I had the money to order something nifty from that website like a T80.

    Who smells fear and slays the coward.
    Sings we a song of man.
    Who smells gold and slays his brother

      I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that Tunguska AAA system. Arab Shilkas in Yom Kipur shot down so many Israeli fighter-bombers IDF would have lost air supremacy if the Arabs had some planes left. And that system only has a fractin of Tunguska's effectiveness.

      As for the effectiveness of the T-90 tank-I wouldn't buy it despite all the media attention and export marketing efforts. I'd prefer a 15-year old Leopard 2 like the ones purchased by Poland.

      The entire T-72 family has been unsuccessful. They'd have to throw out the autolader (which was very groovy in the 1960s but no more) and replace it with a strong 18 year old who will outload it anytime, anywhere. In addition, the tank would have to show dramatic improvement in shoot-first capability at long range and in poor visibility but without distracting the crew with more antiquated machinery to operate. The machine-human interface is not impressive in Russian tank design and people who operate it are getting killed trying to understand where they are and what's going on around them.
