1) How does this clown know that Russia never evaluated the USA miracle concept? Russia is not obliged to masturbate every achievement
or science break through in public.
The first step in system development is to look at other peoples attempts... what were their goals, what did they achieve, what were the problems and why did they ultimately fail or if they succeeded what are our goals and how can we make it better suit our needs.
Case in point is the gun launched anti tank missiles... both France and the US attempted to make gun launched anti tank missiles and both started by making the missiles first based on technology of the time and requirements so to get a good potent warhead and have lots of space for electronics the American weapon was 152mm calibre and the French one was about 142mm I think.
France didn't really progress because it was clear that what they would end up with was a gun that was pretty useless for anything except launching these missiles and that the standard rounds would be non standard in their military and next to useless for any role except HE breaching charge.
An APC with HOT missiles would have rather better performance and be much smaller, lighter, cheaper, and be much more effective. In comparison the missiles they Americans made were awful... there is no evidence they even fired a single missile in combat... and they were taken into combat several times. Driving around caused vibrations which completely turned the whole system into a dud.
The Sheridan tank had armour a HMG could easily penetrate, could not carry that many rounds and never actually used its primary weapon as a missile launcher in combat... an enormous waste of money and time.
The Soviets didn't want to make a missile carrying super tank... they had already tested that by developing the IT-1 and IT-2 that had Sagger missile launchers in place of a main gun. What they wanted to do was to develop a new type of ammo that could be used by any direct fire large calibre main gun they had, which as resulted in missiles for the 100mm (rifled) T-54/55 high pressure gun, the MT-12 100mm (smoothbore) high pressure towed gun, the 100mm rifled medium pressure gun of the BMP-3, and a modification with a small sleeve that was used on the 115mm smoothbore gun of the T-62, as well as various missiles for the 125mm tank gun too.
The missiles didn't have the raw power of a 152mm calibre missile, but they offered reasonable penetration performance out to ranges where the enemy tank can hardly return fire effectively.
They don't carry 40 missiles, they normally carry between 6 and 8 depending on the vehicle and the missiles are designed to be loaded into standard ammo handling systems and be handled like a standard round of ammo. Only minor modifications to the gunners sight are needed to use most of them.
If the US leads the world in everything then why are they not selling 5G network equipment right now... why are the Chinese ready to sell theirs if they were only copying US technology? (rhetorical questions of course).
