That would be nice, too, Greg, but any Namer, at this point in time, is a good Namer. :-*

Hopefully this is just the first of a series, as Meng did with the Merkava. ;)

Lots of dead photo links so this was probably covered already, but it came up as an advert on some page for $170 (with TWO Russian campaign ribbons!! Ooooooooooooooooh!)

Unrealistic. The turret's still on.  >:D

Interesting. Didn't know that. Somehow passed me by.
The Chinese will want to pressure the Russians into delivering them soon,.... while Russia still has any intact Ka-52s to sell.  ;D

The Ukrainians can probably cobble a few working copies from the ones they've shot down.

That T-72 kit should come with rock armor:


They probably work better than the empty egg crates that Russian T-72s are currently sporting. The explosives never having been installed or sold off for some vodka.

They need those baskets full of rocks on top of the turret. From what I read that’s where most of the anti tank missiles hit. The problem with gravel like that is when it does take a hit any infantry nearby get sprayed with gravel bullets. That’s why everyone uses sandbags.
