    From Milex: Belarus take on the Kornet-EM system, using their Shershen ATGM (with 5 km range) and applying it to a Tigr "Beast of Crimea" truck, pretty cool but surprisingly still a downgrade compared to them Kornet-EM version (for obvious reasons):

    Without a doubt some of the most laughably ineffective sanctions I've ever witnessed.  Laughing  Good for Tranzas.

    Got suspended due to insulting someone because of their double standards and misreading what I said in the Ukrainian thread. I stopped altogether going there as the anti anything Russian was disgusting. Im OK with criticism of any country, but they go to lengths that they think they speak truth but go as far as being racist.

    ...It's a Neo-Con fear-mongering website, what do you expect? Neo-Con's are irrational solipsists by nature, the outside world doesn't exist outside their mind...or their mother's basements. Wink 

    Take for example their patently absurd support for Israel against Hamas, they can't seem to reconcile with the fact that the Israel Defense Force created Hamas, even if it comes from the mouths of former leaders of the IDF, even if it comes from a famous newspaper that comes from the Neo-Con sphere of influence (Wallstreet Journal is owned by Rupert Murdoch, and before he bought the newspaper the Wallstreet Journal militantly supported the WMD's in Iraq theory and the consequent invasion):

    http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB123275572295011847

    Another example is their patently absurd support for the Iraq war and Afghanistan war, even though the respective govt's put in power such as Maliki's and Karzai's govt's were not only Pro-Russian and Pro-Putin, they were also Pro-Iranian, and not only just that but Karzai is on record saying he would side with Pakistan against the United States if they would ever go to war with each other lol1 :

    ...lol1 lol1 lol1 Ooops we spent trillions of Dollars to put pro-Iranian govt's in power, when we declared Iran as our enemy lol1 lol1 lol1...

    I read on MP.net that AEK-973 beat the shit out of AK-12 in Army evaluation test between the two.

    According to people in mp.net AK-12 is just a sexed up system with just incremental feature to offer and AEK-973 is more robust and impressive

    And is there also a source to the results of that?
