Considering we have a tank that has beenundefeated by any enemy (the only sole case of it being destroyed was byanother identical tank from our own side), I think that's doing pretty well.

Good. Now perhaps the US and EU will stopwasting our money provoking Russia by sticking their noses into its businessand trying to expand into that region.

>K Lonsdale, Oxford, United Kingdom, 3hours ago - "Why shouldn't Russia try to form an economic union ? Theydidn't try to interfere with the EU project. It's none of our business."... It IS our business when they invade other - independent - countries toFORCE them into their new empire. Maybe you're hoping they will invade ourcountry, as well, so you can enjoy the delights of living under a dictator?Make the most of your vote in the Election. If (when?) Putin's gang get here,you won't have the luxury of it any more. Whatever you think about the EU, nocountry has been forced to join it.

The UK and US are not sticking their nosesin any part of Russia. If a former Soviet country invites the USA into itsterritory and Russia doesn't like it then it is Russia who is sticking theirnoses in. Unless it's in Russia, Russia should shut up.

The turret is only 5mm bigger than the Challenger 2 & Abramstanks and wont have the same top secret armour (British designed) so I can'tsee them winning one on one. There was a Challenger 2 tank that broke down inIraq and the 'insurgents' fires RPGS, rockets etc for hours until they gothelp, they couldn't get through the armour it withstood everything

biggest test was their own friendly fireincidents which proved they couldn't penertrate the depleted uraniummesh-reinforced composite armor and one incident where they wanted to destroyone of their own with another tank in Iraq so it couldn't fall into enemyhands, they couldn't ?

Don't count on them not having the armor

The Russians have been using a 125mm main gun in their MBTs since 1964, sothis calibre is hardly new, whilst slight improvements to the gun may beevident, the biggest upgrade will be to the ammunition.

There are more than two hundred Americanmilitary bases around the world, NATO has been trying to squeeze Russia foryears and the CIA love to engineer regime changes in countries that dont dowhat they want. I am sure that Russia would have been happier seeing itstrading growing around the world and not having to match the belicose posturingthat is the USA and its half trillion dollar a year military industrialcomplex. What do you expect Russia and China to do? Applaud?

Take a break man. You have spent too longwatching war stories. The UK could never hope to field a defense to Russiaalone. That's why Britain has a nuclear deterrent. But that's all it has. Justa cheap option.

The US Army's 8,700 M1 Abrams are completely battle tested tanks,which are so effective that not one has been taken out by enemy fire. Americaalso has a defence budget that far outstrips Russia's. Then there is all theother NATO countries firepower.

I must of been dreaming then when I walkedpast one that had taken out in Iraq then.
美国的这种坦克在伊拉克就有被消灭过啊，我当时还从那辆被摧毁的坦克旁边走了过去呢，难道我是在做梦吗？ （如果觉得五毛网不错的记得帮我们多多推广分享一下）五毛网 http://wumaow.com
