  1. T-34/85 of different plants had light differences in details. This tank assembled from two different machines. The turret is 1946 post-war production of Nizhnyi Tagil plant.
  2. This news would be more appropriate for CMSF2 topic, but potentialy can influence on Russian intentions in Ukraine. Representatives of Taliban movement arrived to Moscow for negotiations despite this organisation officially recognized in Russia as terroristic and prohibited. After negotiations with Lavrov, Taliban representatives arranged the briefing. On the background of Taliban offensive in Afganistan and taking control over borders with Iran, Tadzhykistan and Turkmenistan, Lavrov made a statemant that Russia will not go to war until Taliban will threat Russian allies (to Tadzhykistan first of all). From own side Taliban said they will fight with attempts of ISIS to expand own influense on territory of Afganistan. Interesting that many Russian experts and politics say that Taliban advance agreed with USA in order to distract attention of Russia and involving it to the new war in Afganistan.
  3. Looks like Tigr armored car or some vehicle on its base.
  4. She also keeps her finger on the trigger. And this girl looks too tiny to handle with about 8 kg weapon - like on this video.
  5. 24th of June, the next day after incident with Defender, about 20 Russian jets, some with loaded ammunition Kh-31 antiship missiles dangerously maneuvered around Netherland frigade Eversten, which passed in internarnational waters in 70 n.miles from Crimea coast. Pairs of Su-30SM twice approached on 100 m and pased on low altitude along the course, simulating attacks. Netherland MoD only today issued official statement about this incident Russian MoD claimed Eversten suddenly changed own course toward Kerch strait and all maneuvers of aircrafts and ships were aimed at avoiding border violation. By the words of Russian MoD all passes of Russian jets were at a safe distance. https://www.volkskrant.nl/nieuws-achtergrond/defensie-nederlands-fregat-urenlang-geintimideerd-door-bewapende-russische-vliegtuigen~b6029a27/?referrer=https%3A%2F%2Ft.co%2F
  6. Hm... It finished at once - try to open it in youtube. I did it, all works fine. PS. If you click on "repeat" after video suddenly terminated, the video will play properly in the forum window. PPS. I renewed the link - all works fine in the window.
  7. The shooting took place - see the September is coming topic with Russian video, when their Coast Guard ship fires three times after Defender, which overtook it )
  8. AGS-17 uses in most cases exactly for indirect fire. CM engine too much limits capabilities of this weapon, allowing only direct fire mode. But for this mode there is need the same as for mortars - some unit which has LOS to target and C2 to AGS crew. In real situatuons AGS fire indirectly even w/o LOS, but current engine can't reflect this
  9. UK made clear statement. Defender passed through UKRAINIAN waters. The opinion of occupiers is not interesting to anyone. Russia, of course, in own right to protect occupied territory, but in that case any NATO ship has a right to answer, because they juridically passed through Ukrainian waters with agree of Ukrainain government and under attack ot third state. And as showed the hystory, all what BSF can is heroicaly sink own ships in Sevastopol.
  10. Filming from Russian Coast Guard ships "Ametist" and "Provornyi". On 4:44 commander of "Provornyi" gives order to "Ametist" to make warning shots on course of Defender, but to exclude hits in the ship. On 5:24 "Ametist" 1x6 30 mm gun makes 3 shots
  11. Russian Foreign Minister during the summon of UK amabasador: Russian Foreign Ministry: Moscow warns everyone who goes to provocations like the incident with the British Defender that the consequences could be dire We can appeal to common sense, demand respect for international law, and if this does not help, we can bomb. Not only on the way, but also on the target, if colleagues do not understand Incident with British destroyer may lead to escalation, the Black Sea region becomes an arena of military confrontation In the event of a repeat of provocations, responsibility for their possible consequences would rest entirely on the British side. Agreessor and occupant demands for respect of international law - ahahah British response: The prime minister spoke as Britain pledged to defy the Kremlin and continue sailing through the region to defend international waters. "Britain didn't recognize Russian sovereignty over Crimea, which according to international law belongs to Ukraine". "Royal Navy always will be comply with international law and nothing will be prevent us from inocent passage" "This is territorial waters of Ukraine" https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/you-wont-stop-our-ships-defiant-britain-tells-putin-hr3jcn7c5 Reportage of BBC journalist from the HMS Defender during incident - gunfire heard, but no bombing, just low-pass of Su-24
  12. Confirmed by whom? By Russia? Who in the world recognized this territorial waters belongs to Russia? Russia claims the illegally-annexed peninsula and its waters are its territory, but Britain says its ship was passing through Ukrainian waters. In last time UK signed several memorandums with Ukraine about military shipbuilding (missile boats and minesweepers) and two naval bases equipping . Probably Britain wants to use opportunity to became influent player in the BlackSea region again to contest Russia and Turkey. Probably British companies have some future interests on Black Sea shelf... So, on the background of impotent politic of eternally deeply concerned EU, such active position of Britan is good for us. Putin laugh at western diplomacy and consider it like weakness. He understands only words of force even it will be such "provocations". Large international maneuvers Sea Breeze-2021 will start at 28th June. So, we can expect new such sort of incidents.
  13. Looks like typical British answer with undertone "your farts at us were so paltry, that we even didn't spot it". This is very sensitive hit on Russian conceit. On their military forums now celebrating a great victory over "petty-britt" (such Russians misinterpret the word "Great Britain"). But probably video will come soon. If both sides will not agree to hush up this incident
  14. Russian naval forces shelled UK destroyer HMS Defender in Black Sea, when this ship "entered on 3 km in Russian territorial sea (12 mile zone)" in Fiolent cape area. HMS Defender crossed the "territorial sea" zone at 11:52, Russian Coast Guard ship warned and then in 12:06 and 12:08 twice shelled at destroyer. In 12:17 Russian Su-24M dropped four OFAB-250 bombs the course of destroyer. At 12:23 HMS Defender left "territiorial sea". Since Russian status of occupied Crimea is not recognized, territorial waters around it formally considered as Ukrainian, so British ship didn't violate any law because her visit was agreed with Ukraine. https://ria.ru/20210623/korabl-1738233635.html - first source in Russian https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-57583363 - in English On the photo HMS Defender in Odesa port several days ago AIS track of HMS Defender
  15. In summer 2014 many tank crews were really "dudes, grabbed from the street", but such equipment like Oplot would be given to the best contractor crews. When BTR-4 came to service in 2014 their drivers initially were not military, but civil test-drivers of tank plant.
