AFV of the week

Recommended Posts

What I want to know is how did they seal the float screen around the main gun?

And against the forward water pressure.

Well I would think they have figured out how to make a tank without a turret, so pluging a hole would be easy.:clin:

Interesting choice Alfa

I read somewhere the type 90 was the most expensive tank in the world at one time due to Its limited production. they also seem to spend a lot to keep there armoured force up to date

Not sure about the capability's of the type 74 should make for some interesting reading.

I suppose they also have to take him into consideration. LoL

There will always be the Mothra based airforce for support. And Mechagodzillas from secret bases in hollowed volcanos.
