    Speaking tanks, MacGregor said it would take anytime a Leopard2 vs an Abrahms due to the very low range (and so logistic problems) of the latter, which needs to be re-fueled every 4-6 hours of running.

    The quote button has been removed because of some heated debates in the past. You need to quote manually.

    The issue with the Leopard 2 is that it has been overrated and seriously underperformed on the real battlefield. Not some pew pew 'sign here for the sale' demonstrations.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDBl6E6lZ3E&t=77s

    The issue with the Abrams is that it requires a huge logistics chain to fuel and maintain them, modern anti tank weaponry welcomes the heat signature of the (fuel hungry) turbine, the thing is massively overweight for the relevant infrastructure it should operate in or on. It did not really perform well in Saudi Arabia when it actually was matched with modern weaponry instead of rabid Afghan goats or a 30 year weakened Iraq army. For the standalone price of an Abrams you can introduce two T90's, who don't need a massive supply chain to keep them running.

    For objectivity, the same guy made a T-90 rant version as well, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Q83AIJCGaQ Wink

    Very ugly video. He killed them when they stoped fighting. It was a scary situation. The guy on the left wasn't even armed and they both looked like civilians and not trained military guys. He shouldn't have shot them. Very sad to watch.

    ISOS, that situation could have changed completely

    If he had his men come with him maybe they could have forced their submission

    But as soon as they started to grab at him - he had seconds to react or it would be him lying still at the end

    War is brutal - but that's what it is

    That soldier who cleared that trench, who is that?

    Wagner? VDV?

    The guy has a good scope on and some of the other men look well equipped as they come into frame on the right

    As he puts his hand on the tree to catch a breath, I know that guy is having the moment flash into his mind - he didn't want to kill them as he tried to take the weapons but they were in disbelief as he runs up behind them they are thinking hes one of theirs

    Crazy shit for sure

    Russian soldier risked his own life by approaching them while they were armed to save theirs
    Older one could have easily killed him several times during the brief exchange and tug of war over the rifle, imo the moment they refused to disarm he should have taken them out.
    I do feel somewhat bad for the kid, or as much as I can feel for an anglo nazi boot licker,  he seemed to have finally realised what was going on just as he got taken out, but the old dude was still armed, so fully justified, its a war not a paintball match.
