Sure looks impressive to the yokels, all those tanks letting it rip across entire field. On the other hand, I would hate to be part of that "charge of the light brigade" if the enemy actually had comparative assets to shoot back. Smacks of either extremely rigid tactics or (more likely) good old Soviet pokazukha... <_<

Great videos. Thanks Przezdzieblo.

Is that like an entire regiment on line. At least two battalions.

Strange or not , M1s going pedal to the floor in 2003 looked strikingly similar.

Point is : when a brigade of tanks is coming your way , you'd better have nerves of steel irrespective of the weapon you're carrying.The massive firepower they have ( even if only spraying the LOS with MG fire ) will allow them to pierce through.What's the chance for the defender to have at least n+1 ATGMs in that area ? Or support tanks for the matter?

Well, it seems obvious to me the location and pace was chosen for show. Empty rolling field from horizon to horizon, tanks advancing in tight formation and opening up only on reaching medium range, no suppression of enemy positions, no deployment of obscurants... how is it indicative of a real thing? How many tanks would actually reach the firing line in this scenario if there was an acav squadron in a defense position? Heck, if there was a company of their own brethren defending it would have inflicted unacceptable casualties on this charge.

Russia doesnt have quantity anymore. High time to look into getting quality by other means...

Well they have some 16000+ tanks in the Army now and probably another 50000 ( from IS3 to T72 ) rusting away in storage facilities or under the open sky.

I think "quality" by other means is when they get rid of the old T55 layout and bring something new from the ground up.

Any news on T95 ?

I'm beginning to think we need a whole new board category for that tank alone :lol:

There is a thread called "T-95 revisited" which seems to show anything else which is known, and speculates about the rest which isn't :rolleyes:

I agree those were interesting vid clips. I assume we were watching T-72's there? Its strange to see them without side skirts! Quite an asembling of firepower too, but being such a tightly formed front; a brief artillery barrage would really shake things up for the attacker.......or perhaps this could have been some idea of a counter-attack against an invader?

I'm sure no one is thinking that that would be an actual battle deployment in any other scenario but a modern WW2 re-enactment. :P

But as a live-fire exercise it is impressive for its sheer quantitative scale. No such training grounds anywhere in Europe!

Mufflers. Reduces the noise. A lot (most) Swiss military exercises are held in civilian areas so reducing noise reduces the bother on the local civilians which in turn reduces complaints.

I found this on ARRSE, which identifies it as an M10, not a Sherman, but that's not the point.
