The new western upgrades MIGHT have APS...
Meanwhile, the Russians have had hard and soft kill APS for a generation... Hell they even sold soft kill APS on monkey models as far back as the late
T90's can take fairly modern Western APFSDS hits (yes HITS plural... 4 frontal hits to bare armor in a recent test done by India) and still drive away
Throw on the newest reactive armor they have and the situation gets worse.
As far as the aircraft attack comments... Yeah, have fun with busting through the mobile IADS umbrella. Assuming you do this you better send 2+ of
whatever because the first gets shot down, maybe the second too... APS remember?
Oh and say you open up from 5000 meters... Wait APS again...
Leo fanboys... ROFLMFAO yeah .,.. NO
I'm an American, and I support the military... That's exactly why the stupidity, overconfidence, and ignorance this thread is completely full of make
me so angry!
Military superiority is not some divine right bestowed upon the west!
It was a gift paid for in blood, treasure, and extensive / well managed technical research combined with adequate funding to buy maintain etc our
fleets and train our guys.
It's completely asinine to believe that no other nations on earth can catch up, especially given the virtual 25 year pause in western armored vehicle
So keep cheering and doing nothing to change the way things are in the west...
