Just a reminder. M1 Tank Test Bed!
Check the specs boys! Nothing is new under the sun! We had an Armata - like tank too, but never pulled the trigger! Did you guys forget about the M1 Tank Test Bed????
Bonus Coverage! Below is a pic of the Falcon turret mounted on a Challenger MBT chassis made and sold by KADBB! Same concept but no one has bit on it yet! On a personal note, long time followers of mine will note that this was a subject that Sean Meade over at Aviation Week let me publish on his site. His encouragement helped me to start this blog. I wonder how he's doing?
What is my point? The concept that the Armata is following has been out there a while now. The difference is that the Russians had the courage to see a concept and pull the trigger on it. We have tons of "blasts from the past" that would serve us well today. We just haven't followed thru.
