The new supertank will have two drones. The drones are to fly half a mile ahead of the tank letting the crew know whats ahead.
It will have even better armor and the wildest rumor i heard is that the tank will have drones that protect it from missiles. If a missile is launched at the tank, computer guided drones fly directly in front of the missile and disable it when impacted.
Yeah I've seen concept art for something like that but it's got to be at least 20 years off.

Not far from it being a shape of a Dinosaur and have freaking laser beam for a cannon.
Rail guns require a lot of energy, on ships it's none issue, on a tank if doable it'll be 1 round per 3 minutes or even longer lag time, unless some new super source of energy comes out.
I agree that it does seem far fetched. If it wasn't for personally knowing these people for over 20 years now, i would never believe them even though they work in the defense industry.

What's wrong with me bringing some humor into your Russian tea party, did you really think I was that serious?

You have a lust for Russia and it's obvious. Leave the military stuff to the military. Go back to playing rural Paul Blart mall cop. I'm sure theres some meth addicts running around out there who stole a farmers bicycle and molested his cows. Go get em tiger you're my hero!!

You're the armored version of the AK vs AR argument. The only answer you you'll accept is the answer you believe. You even compared Russia's bullshit in Syria as a projection of power. That is not even close to what real projection of power is. Russia will never be able to produce enough of anything to outmatch us. Not only that, they can't afford to properly maintain the stuff or train their military personnel on the stuff. That's exactly why that tank broke down in the parade. The driver hadn't enough knowledge to operate it, yet that's his job.

You're also entirely missing the fact that we're parked all over the world and can literally hit anyone with enough force until support comes. Russia can't even keep a ship out to sea longer than their food and fuel goes lmao. Which means they have to go back to wherever they came from to reup before they can go out again. Fantasy world, yup you're living in it.

They always saw those types of operations as embarrassment......It's like openly looking at your neighbors wife by the pool from your second story house and have no shame in it when you are caught looking by her husband.

This thread turn was made by him stating how Soviets had the largest spy network but fails to see that it was us who flew spy planes and not them. Our CIA was just if not more involved in spying then the Soviets did.
Cause they simply couldn't do it and a Mig-31 couldn't catch an SR-71 on it's best dayj.

No need to waste $ to achieve the same results.


Because they simply couldn't do it.

It was MUCH more costly to do the same job then what Soviets were doing without a shuttle.
Loosing two was a huge deal and what actually lead to it's demise, we were willing to still pump money into it as we didn't care to much about expenses.
Ummm, no. It was launched once and never flew again. Not counting piggy back plane rides. 3 catastrophic failures in 153 launches is like one half of one percent or something like that. Not bad in the dangerous realm of space exploration.

The Iraqis were trained by the Russians. how would it have been different if against Russians?

The Asian theatres had the USA and allies with something like three times the aircraft in theatre. A target rich environment. And unless they had overwhelming odds the MO of opposing aircraft was to run back to safe airspace. kinda hard to make ace if the quarry always runs away.

If you think the Russians left Afghanistan just because you're delusional. They got beat and it was because it was too expensive to continue.

The Israelis had equipment they obtained from the USA and allied forces. The Arabs were using equipment supplied by the Soviets. The Arabs were trained by the Soviets as well. Again, how would this have been different had this been a Russian army?

Don't matter how you want to measure, every time Russian and American equipment has squared off it's gone badly for Russian stuff.

LOL and our stuff went up against ISIS..and how well did that turn out? The "stinger" if that is what your referring to going head to head with russian equipment is folklore and propaganda by the west...the actual kill rate is in the 10% range of stingers to downed aircraft it aimed at.

Again it is not the equipment it is the educated trained military personnel that is behind it. We have the most trained and sophisticated and expensive equipment and army in the world..yet we have not won a war or conflict in 80 years??? yet $13 dollar soviet ak47's and 74's are the primary arm in every one of these conflicts.

Remember the Nazi army the most advanced army for the time which we only saw about 1/5 in every conflict theater we were exposed too lost to Russia because of the land mass, weather, numbers of humans and the cheap means of mass production of small arms/expendable reliable tanks.

Yet another example of Russian technology, engineering, workmanship, training and talent:

A Russian AN-12 transport plane carrying approximately 9 tons of gold blocks, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, lost a third of its cargo as it was taking off from the Yakutsk Airport in eastern Siberia on Thursday....After the bars fell, the crew members immediately landed the aircraft in nearby Magan Airport and returned to Yakutsk to gather the lost gold...
LMAO
