    They could have had two landing craft to deliver them with... but that might take a little longer now.

    Well, I think it is a good news.

    I was surprised to know the Black Berets had given up their MBTs, and I think it is just the right move to get them back.

    They had upgraded T-55s before (I think some even with the Drozd APS), so yeah this is quite the upgrade.

    I remember reading about why the T-80 was a good choice for service with marine units. The South Koreans clocked onto this and used the T-80s gotten from Russia to equip their own marines.

    However I forgot why exactly. Anyone have an idea?

    Impressive diving into the water from the forward ramp of the landing craft Denis Davydov of project 21820 of the armored personnel carrier BTR-82A of the Marine Corps of the Baltic Fleet on March 23, 2018.
