Re: Slow down folks!

......or was the much publicized assessment of the Foxbat just a propaganda move?


Soviet and post-Soviet Russian weaponry has a pretty good reputation- if not superior in performance then good and generally a lot cheaper and easier and cheaper to maintain.


True of the good 'ol AK47 which is fondly regarded by millions of gun enthusiasts.


The T72 was a pretty good tank but had a problem- the barrel had to be retooled fairly frequently to maintain range. Saddam hadn't kept up on that and US tanks just stood outside their range and picked them off.


I wouldn't bet on the NoKo's making that mistake.
