  1. Has anyone tried out how different IFV machine cannons fare against it? Was thinking the other day how the Marder 20mm set on rapid fire would give it trouble or simply drain the system for a follow-up sabot kill.
  2. The most detailed account I found in "Tanks of Tammuz" by Shabtai Teveth. I don't remember the longest kill range and if it was a tank or a dozer. But they did hit AFVs during the engagements protecting the earth-moving vehicles. My copy is stored away at the moment, probably someone else here has it at hand. I liked that it was a lot of lessons learned and their first try was a complete failure.
  3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_over_Water_(Jordan_river) Would it technically be possible to recreate the 10+km Israeli tank gunner hits with SB Pro PE? Ever since I read about those incidents I was kinda fascinated to visualize them somehow.
  4. In another round in October (or part2?), France won in front of Norway, US and the 4th place went to Germany. Tanks of all four NATO eFP battlegroups participated: M1 Abrams, Leclerc, Challenger 2, PT-91, Ariete, Leopard 2 A6, Leopard 2E, Leopard 2 A4NO. Probably the largest gathering of NATO tanks since CAT days... https://www.armyrecognition.com/october_2019_global_defense_security_army_news_industry/lynx_6_victory_of_the_leclerc_tank_during_the_combined_exercise_iron_spear.html
  5. Rollout of the first Leopard 2 A7V for the Bundeswehr, as well as for the Danish army: https://www.kmweg.de/mediacenter/pressebilder.html
  6. Spanish NATO eFP company.
  7. Thank you all for your input. I had a bit more luck in the meantime and was able to buy a couple of US, UK, French and German rations for a decent price. What I find lacking about most review videos is the kind of mess kit the different armies use. For example you can't complain about missing cutlery in a German pack when you know that each soldier is issued a standard re-usable set.
  8. Out of discussion with colleagues about my Bundeswehr time I got curious if the combat rations had changed much in the past decade. Does anyone know a cheap source for them? I tried ebay and some military and outdoor shops but the prices are way too high in my opinion. I want to compare the current US, German, French and British ones.
  9. @Marko They kept the 24 Mig-29s for a longer time. And they had the brilliant idea of putting lots of money into modernising and fitting 600+ BMP-1s to Western traffic regulations, only to sell them all in 1993 when they found out the total of Marders was sufficient to equip the new East German Panzergrenadiere...
  10. Well I assumed that the fact would have surfaced after nearly 30 years and that a board full of tank nuts with a special taste in Cold War gone hot scenarios would know the answer by heart. Thnx though.
  11. No response to my question so far...have a Soviet major of tank troops radioing in his T-62 as coverboy of Soviet Military Review for the wait.
  12. LOL, the tank version of "The Thing" has been found...
  13. BTR and BMP in the East German NVA. For those who don't understand German: lots of bad Western imperialism and superior socialism, most evident in the blatant lie about ingenious Soviet WW2 infantry motorisation. Still interesting to watch. What a horror it must have been to dismount from a BTR-60/70 in combat conditions.
