    Autocannon / Javelin Stryker?

    American 82nd Airborne Division again received armored vehicles https://www.snafu-solomon.com/2018/10/68th-armor-regiment-airborne-lives-again.html
  2. I do not think that which side would be the first to use tactical nuclear weapons in the attack. I admit that the commanders of military units would begin to use it in cases of serious defeat. I have long wanted to also propose a time period of 1960–80, or more precisely 1983–89, when the armies of NATO and Warsaw Pact were equal in firepower. Without the conditions for use of nuclear weapons and not in spirit of Tom Clancy. There is a huge amount for the space of northern group of troops, western group of troops, etc , this is DLC.

    ATGM malfunction?

    I once told how the rocket came back after the launch due to the fact that it was already quite old. Fortunately, everything went without a serious incident.

    @Vet 0369 We have an analogue "Uniform Code of Military Justice", only here it is called the All-Military Charters of the RF Armed Forces. It includes: 1) Charter of the internal service of Armed Forces 2) Disciplinary Charter of Armed Forces 3) Marching Charter of Armed Forces 4) Charter of the garrison and guard services of Armed Forces 5) Ship charter of Russian Navy 6) Charter of the military police of Armed Forces 7) The military regulations of Armed Forces - it has its own subparagraphs The first three charters are fundamental as they explain the relationship between the military, the requirement of them and their rights.

    For 10 years of military service, I felt the transition period of the army and all the delights of reforms. I understand people who are in favor of a professional army. Those whose standard of living is high enough do not want to "lose" time. Those who are timid, afraid of army difficulties. Those who want to find a job more profitable. But I also understand that it is necessary to change something in the soldier's training system. Restoring the initial military training in schools and DOSAAF is a necessary step, but just a step. The state should stimulate young people with a large number of benefits after military service. I don `t know what to offer for soldiers on conscript, I am against conscription, I know that there is money for a fully professional army. But I definitely know what to offer for those who served in the army for 3 years or more. 1) A decent salary for those who are now serving. 2) Such people can be offered a fully paid education in any university in the country. 3) Tax benefits in accordance with the years of service. 4) Free travel in public transport after 5 years of service. 5) Social benefits for the family. I read here that you discussed the minuses of military service under the contract. Yes, there are many of them. 1) The most obvious minus of military service under the contract is the need to risk both your health and your life. Many of my acquaintances in the civilian liberal views of the fact that our army nowhere should be at war. The army must fight only when an external enemy attacks our country. I came across some servicemen who do not want on business trips, they say - "I DO NOT WANT, I WILL NOT". At the same time, they do not understand that the contract for military service says nothing about the fact that they have the right to choose their place of service and with whom and when to fight. The state decides where and when to use the army, do not want to fight in Syria, do not sign a contract. Or go to politics and restrict the use of the army abroad. 2) Limitation of personal space and freedom. Not every person is ready to obey orders and unconditionally fulfill the requirements of the command. There is no democracy in the army. For this reason, 20% of people who signed a contract for military service, it is torn in 2-4 months. 3) Not standardized working day. 4) Family. 50% of marriages fell apart due to the fact that the wives did not like the new place of service of her husband. Imagine you are a year where next to a major city in an hour's drive, and then you are told that you are sent to a place where there is not even a mobile Internet. Luckily, I did not marry for the entire service time.

    @BTR Other military vehicles for military schools. When I myself studied at a military school, my teacher told me that in 92's. he studied BMP-3, but he was told that they could be seen only 20 years later. It's ironic that it happened, they began to enter mass army after 2010.

    @DerKommissar This machinegun for the commander, gunner has a machine gun to the right of 125mm gun. Apparently take into account the experience of urban battles. P.S. A question for developers, T-90AM will receive an update in form of T-90M with large-caliber machinegun module RCWS.

    It is necessary to look among the former generals whom Putin dismissed from the army and appointed governors. At a fairly young age, they were once close to Putin. I'm betting on Alexey Dyumin, and I think Putin will leave 1-2 years ahead of schedule, leaving his successor.

    @AtheistDane For such a short period of time it is impossible to create a tank, T-54 in the series went after 5 years, T-64 in 15 years. At the same time first tank was created in the years of WWII and after the war time, and the second tank during the Cold War, which could grow at any time during the hot phase. I can conclude that nowadays it takes more time for the future serial tank. And secondly, as it was already said, modernization better justifies the combined environment, while the modernization potential will not be exhausted. I myself spent a great time on BMP-2 as a gunner, and then platoon and company commander. The combat vehicle needs to replace ammunition and sights that meet modern requirements and it will get a second wind. Battle module "Berezhok" as an example of possible modernization.

    @Sgt.Squarehead , @sburke No, this is not a permanent practice, sometimes such a method of landing is practiced. This method was created for wartime during the Cold War. Honestly, mass airborne assaults are parachute out of date. The last more or less successful parachute landing was in Iraq in 1991. But in the airborne troops in different countries this is preserved as a tribute to traditions. In Russia, the airborne troops are the role of rapid reaction troops, as in other countries.The airborne force in fact became just an light infantry. Several years ago, even in motorized rifle troops began to practice tactical assaults on helicopters, company-battalion.

    @Erwin In 70's there was the problem of crew search for AFV after landing. The idea was suggested that the crew would hop inside AFV, and not separately, which saved a lot of time. Now the parachute system is being developed so that all squad with the crew are dropped inside AFV .
