It's a vulnerable design loop that tank designers can't seem to over come. All tanks have three weaknesses. The rear end underbelly and the top where the armor is thinnest.. .
With new lofting anti armor missiles IEDs .
The better the Anti Armor weapons are the better designed tanks have to be..

Altay is a really capable mbt, but there are problems tho, some parts are inported from germany or other eu countries and its still questionable that the turks can produce or import them in big quantities

what's the point of using "AI" if humans decide what products to buy.
what is it with this weird nostalgic fascination with manned vehicles?
maybe "AI" is a bit too ruthless in warfare, but it's usually against the enemy. tip for human commanders, don't be incompetent.

So do i get the facts correct?

Here we see a German Leopard 2 tank (base armour, engine, Powerpack, tracks machanics, landing gears etc)
with a Korean K2 designed turret,
with a German 120mm smoothbore gun.

How many work it took to fit the K2 turret on the Leopard tank? 🤔

OmG! It looks like modified Sahins or Kartals. Extra hightness gives dangerous positions and parts for the crew and machine. What did you do? I cannot believe you. I will cry, see you later.



Let me give you "ı" to type Fırtına correctly
