    Won't stop about a gazillion propaganda pieces & little snide additions to other topics 'After the failure of Armata Russia is so desperate to fill out its Aggressive Russian Expansionist Russia Aggression army that its recommissioning WWII era tanks!!111!1!11'

    Yeah, but think how much money they will be saving on tents when the temperature gets below zero degrees C... perhaps Germany has forgotten the lessons of WWII already... it is OK because they only plan to fight in summer...

    The real issue is that of the enormous number of T-34s they made they barely had enough left to do what they are doing with these tanks from Laos... which suggests their other tanks in storage are probably in a usable shape but not a parade shape... which makes sense.

    Of course if anyone really gets lippy about the Russians using foreign made tanks in their WWII commemoration these are probably the famous tanks that evaded the great Laotian tank eater.... so they are famous.

    (For those not aware, the new gunships were tested in Laos and Vietnam during that period (60s-70s) but when they returned from missions their reports listed enormous numbers of kills, whose wrecks never seemed to be present when the recon aircraft flew over later to check the damage done... the difference in the number killed and the number of destroyed vehicles found was explained by the Great Laotian Tank eater... that these vehicles seemed to have avoided for a good 50 years it seems...)

    A very important symbolic role... they will likely be used in the May day parades from now on...

    Interesting, never heard of that.

    AC-47... the original gunship... Smile

    It was initially called Puff the magic dragon, but ended up being called Spooky.

    It was during missions to intercept material and trucks going down the Ho Chi Min trail in Laos that created the myth...

    Hahahaha... some western sites are so ignorant... but then ignorance is catching... but then we knew for years about the various long range cruise missiles the Russians had, but the west didn't really take notice until they used them in Syria.

    Further evidence if evidence was needed that the west is not the future and some alternative from Russia or China or indeed India is needed...

    The original new, not the blog revised editions that George1 loves to post, said these T-34 were produced in the Soviet Union in 1944. Transfered to Laos in 1987 now returning to Russia.

    In the refered to the strocture of the T-34, I think it will be a mobile museum, more than a conventional unit. The concept can be also valid with the BM-13 The other most outstanding Sovietic weapon of the WWII..

    Ummm https://bmpd.livejournal.com/3591727.html
    According to the factory newspaper "Izvestia Mashinostroiteli" ... Uralvagonzavod Corporation "received an order from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation to restore the serial production of historic Soviet T-34-85 tanks.
    ...
    in the ideas of the Russian Ministry of Defense and the Main Political Directorate, as the newspaper reports, the creation of a whole regiment of T-34 tanks in the Moscow region, the formation of a battalion of historical tanks in each of the military districts, as well as a company - in each division and in each tank college, and platoon - as part of each brigade. These tanks will form the basis of the parade calculations of these units and formations during the annual Victory Parades on May 9 and various military-patriotic events. Thus, the entire military department expects to receive more than 400 T-34-85 tanks in a few years.



    Edit: Agh just read the date censored censored they got me lol jocolor
