Yup, thats right! The "propaganda" armored vehicle used in psychological warfares to boost self confidence and as well as to destroy the enemy's confidence, psychologically.

This type of psychological warfare should work quite well (at least theoreticly), especially when the enemies can understand the same language.
But even if they dont, hearing a bunch of non-stoppable foreign broadcasts loudly on the battle field can still cause the emeny troops to lose confident in themselves.

This is nothing new, didnt a squadron of hueys in Vietnam use loud speakers when they went into the battle zones?

for some reason the name guns a gogo comes to mind?

and im sure ive seen tanks with loud speakers somewhere before on a battle field, even failing that the FBI and ATF didnt they use a similar method during wako?

The way i see it propaganda or not those speakers make a bigger target out of the vehicle.

It's not supposed to be used on a batlefield. It's for areas that you occupy -like, just for a purely theoretical example, Tibet - as a means of communicating forcefully with the locals.

The US used vehicles with loudspeakers (ground vehicles and helicopters) to broadcast propaganda in Vietnam with some effect.

It might boost self-confidence among the locals but I don't see how that ridiculous-looking tank can demoralize foreign rivals.

This is more effective.

In October, Hans Kristensen, a nuclear weapons researcher with the Federation of American Scientists, spotted a Google Earth satellite image that appeared to show two of China's Jin-class nuclear powered ballistic missile submarines. Some military analysts were surprised that China had built a second submarine of that class so soon after the first, in 2004.
