Most awesome tank pic

Isn't that that Russian anti-personnel tank?

Nope Half a mark. Next guess?

My tank can beat up your tank in a fight.

Designed to fight infantry in urban areas, after experiences in Chechnya where Shilkas were pressed into the role and found not quite up to the task.

Spot on!


Tank platoon in Chechnya; the furthest one may actually be a Shilka, not sure, but the old SPAAGs struggled away at providing close support to the tanks in Chechnya. Shilkas, like all SPAAGs are clumsy and weak in close support roles; loads of firepower but not particularly great awareness or armour.

In a pinch, however, armies still use them this way.

Such as in Syria.


The BMPT packs on even more hull armour than the T72 and T90 tanks it's derrived from, with high-angle gun system and lots of optics for spotting trouble around it. There is nowhere the tanks can go that this thing can't follow.


Unrelated freeby, since i'm busily dodging ye olde "double post rule".

Vivid picture of Russian troops in a deep trench while a T34 crosses it (and them). 1942.
