Will get to see a cheap drone pop the top of what Russia is calling their best tank.

I like the blessing of the tank.   Seems exactly like something Jesus would do.  He wasn't getting stabbed with Roman spears, he was blessing them!

Didn't the first one they send last only 3 days before it was blown up?

They're going to tow the T-14 into battle?

Oh, the T-90M?  😂

Maybe it's just me, but this report seems to be crying out for somebody to hit that train.

So what use is this brand new tank if its location is always known because they are constantly broadcasting it on a civilian, unencrypted frequency?

I could have sworn I saw a picture of a burn out T-90 about a week or so ago.

I don't have much to add, so I did a google image search for the goofiest looking cartoon clipart of a tank I could find and I think I did it:

You did, and they've already lost a number of T90's.  This is not some game changer.  These will jack-in-the-box just as well as the previous ones.

According to the news agency, the T-90M is able to exchange data with other machines in real time.

The T-90M is most advanced at what? Launching its turret fully into orbit instead of merely into the stratosphere like the base-model T-90?

Against an apartment building, it's simply unbeatable.

Yeah great nice a advance tank, do they have anyone left that is trained to use it correctly? Hey maybe they should use their tank driving champ I heard he is the area, whatever happened to him?

The tanks were blessed by the rector of the church of Dimitry Donskoy, Archpriest John Bragin, in what was described as a "solemn ceremony" by RIA Novosti.

What's the difference between the T90 we've seen in the past in Ukraine & the T90M?

Best evidence of imminent death of Vlad I can see.  His exit plans involve victory, cancer, revolver, or coup.  And he must have crossed the first one off at least a month ago.  But he might delay a coup by a few months by not cutting and running...

Don't you people understand?

These aren't ordinary tanks. These are tanks developed by the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering! That's right. You heard me. I said the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering!

Perhaps he doesn't want to die from cancer & has decided to die by suicide by coup.

tl;dr-FTA: T-90M tanks feature the same turret equipped with an ammunition box that has been pointed at by Western defense industry experts as the design flaw responsible for the colossal tank losses Russia is estimated to have suffered in Ukraine.

Their automatic loaders spare the compartment of an extra man, but require that munitions be stored in a circular fashion beneath the turret, which has proven to be an insurmountable design flaw.

Again and again and again, we've seen that a precision hit from an armor-penetrating round ignites the vulnerable munitions and pops the turrets off like bottle caps.

So all those brand new T-90 main battle tanks got loaded onto a train? Well, there is no guarantee that train will ever arrive if Ukraine has anything to say about it.

T-90 goes in cage. Cage goes into salsa. Shark's in the salsa. Our shark. Salsa shark. With Bayraktars and NLAWS and Javelins and Panzerfaust and Charlie Gutsache and Switchblades and 155mm artillery. They're gonna need a bigger boat.

It's almost as if the Russian Army isn't as good as the Ukrainian Army.
 
2022-05-17 1:39:42 PM  
Good luck with that. Doesn't really matter HOW advanced the tanks are if the tactics and strategy remains the same. I suspect they're STILL going to bunch up in the same grid square and cross rivers in the same spots, again and again...
