Bongs beat all comers in latest NATO competition (Iron Spear competition held in Latvia).
For months everyone has been saying the Challenger 2 was the worst tank in NATO, and I understand the arguments here. So is this more down to the crews than the vehicles?
It should also be noted that Spanish crews took three out of six prize places in two categories, so power to based Paella people.
Bong tanks are best tanks.
Its probably just a gunnery test and they probably won because of the rifled gun. Its not a real test of anything
cope and seethe you fucking yank/frog/kraut cunt
Hit a nerve lol it's obvious who is coping & seething
Challenger was just proven to be the best tank in the world. Check the OP for NATO trials
Everything I've read on the subject suggests that to be the case. It seems that it's just a shooting competition. Not that that's an unimportant thing for a tank to be tested on, but I didn't see anyone disputing the accuracy of the challenger to begin with so I'm forced to conclude that op is a gay.
>Not that that's an unimportant thing for a tank to be tested on, but I didn't see anyone disputing the accuracy of the challenger to begin
heres the thing i dont get with the poster who do shit on the Chally, what exactly is it they think is so bad about it?
its very very well armoured, has decent speed, very very good off road mobility, its very accurate as far as the gun is concerned,
I know the gun is rifled instead of the standard smooth bore but its still capable of wrecking every likely opponent
Almost as good as the cope updates
It’s very slow and uses 2 piece ammo
>It’s very slow
It's still faster than a Bradley and the off road speed isn't appreciably worse than other tanks
Drag races on concrete are not a valid comparison for tanks
>it’s 2 mph faster than a Bradley
That’s terrible for a tank meant to breakthrough enemy lines.
The bongs brought the best crew this year I'd wager. These competitions are usually more about the people than the hardware. Challenger 2 needs some love and is long in the tooth, but its good to see some fight still in her.
Not really. MBTs shouldn't be outrunning their support. An advance is only sustainable at the speed of the slowest vic within it, which is probably the logistics end of things. Nor is it a tank's job to break through enemy lines alone. Its the entire formation's job.
The challenger is the slowest vic in the formation. They don’t roll with bradleys
It also stores ammo with the crew which is a massive drawback
>It’s very slow
its the same speed as a abrams off road, slower on a road sure but the whole point of having tracks in the first place is off road mobility. it also has a greater operational range
But it stores ammo with the crew. It makes me sick
in water filled bins, anything that sets those off has already killed the crew.
It stores ammo with the crew. Huge no no
>It stores ammo with the crew in an armored individual compartments
That’s infinitely worse than how the abrams stores ammo
If what your saying is true how come there are so many rekt abrams? Seems like you've been cheated.
They’ve seen an order of magnitude more combat, have run over massive mines, and have been used by shitty Arab countries. The challenger 2 just straight up hasn’t seen a lot of combat. That doesn’t make it a bad tank it just doesn’t have a lot of real world experience
What made you come back from your hiatus?
Lack of life?
Or was it much simpler than that, the Warrior living rent free in your head
This is objectively false. Its seen more combat than most MBTs, and has been hit by enemy fire and survived many times also
It’s been hit by rpgs and penetrated by a kornet frontally. It’s a safe queen
The Bradley ifv is:
Has bad mobility
Is accident prone
Has bad visibility for the driver
What sort of cope is this
Post your shit toolbag so we can all laugh again
>Not a real test of anything
Maybe, but the Challenger is a well battle tested tank unlike the rest aside from the Abrams.
The few rounds stored in the hull are in individual armored containers.
Are you the retard that tried to sow division in the last thread but got btfod?
Russia dominated their tank competitions and come to find out, it literally doesn't matter in real combat.
Goes to show how important strategy is over individual unit skill.
Go home and come back when you can make a quality thread.
>Russia dominated their tank competitions and come to find out, it literally doesn't matter in real combat.
>Russia dominated their scripted tank displays
Gee, what a totally interesting, shocking, and relevant point!
Yes considering that it's just a gunnery competition and there is no reason to suggest it is indicative of general tank performance.
>Wins Gunnery comps
>Wins every war its been in
>Wins never being destroyed by enemy fire
Damn Challenger, you win all of that
So we're counting the sandbox as a win now?
Lmao warriortard, your too easy to bait.
The posts are less than a minute apart. Your delusions are manifesting
The challenger 2 has seen very little combat
>The challenger 2 has seen very little combat
but more than any western MBT but the abrams and with more tank kills than anything but the abrams as well, with no loses to enemy action
Just because it’s second doesn’t mean it’s seen any meaningful combat because it hasn’t
This is just the product of not bothering to google shit
but it has demonstrated that it can resist most russian ATGMs, and despite some criticism of its ammo storage it seems to have worked in action, the friendly fire kill involved a significant blast entering the turret and hull via a open hatch, the storage protected the crew long enough to abandon the tank.
>Wins every war its been in
The outcome of the 2003 invasion would've been the same even if the bongs drove mark Vs into battle because they didn't really matter.
>Russia dominated their tank competitions
but those were just a dozen T-72 clones doing some stunts, plus russia rigged it every time
Do HATO tanks make ballet too?
What a cultured nation. And those sweet bow ties on the armored vehicle, such grace.
can the F-15E dance like that? I don't think so
The challenger 2 is the best armoured MBT in service, pretty much. Other than that it's old in tooth. However it shows that British soldiers can do a lot with a little
So which one is it? Is the chally the best MBT, or are british soldiers forced cope with poor equient?
As in we don't need many tanks
>The challenger 2 is the best armoured MBT in service, pretty much.
Mate, what? I’m a Brit and this is fucking mental. The Chally 2 is slow and extremely unreliable, we could barely keep them running in the Middle East, we kept having to cannibalise other tanks back home for their engines.
>Mate, what? I’m a Brit and this is fucking mental
If you were a Brit you would have said, THAT is fucking mental, you disgusting ESL turdie way to out yourself with a terrible false flag.
Nobody can read. The best armoured, as in its armoured protection is best. Armour.
> as in its armoured protection is best
Surely you’re about to back this up
Google it warriortard
14 RPGs and a Milan, pretty good going.
There's an official claim of one tank sustaining approx. 70 rpg hits. This could be baloney of course but we have little to go on. The point is chally 2s have found themselves stuck and surrounded by enemies firing RPGs at them for hours and have gone back into battle after minor repairs on a couple of occasions
Bongs aren’t a reliable source.
Equally the armour is classified but it was enticing enough for the tanks to license it from us
Yanks* and tanks I guess.
Abrams ditched chobham
so did challenger 2 but both are using a derivative of Chobham
The US is using its own brand new armor. The fact that it used to have chobham isn’t relevant
The US uses a proprietary armor suite with multiple components including depleted uranium. it’s about as british as civilian gun ownership is
Check out the bonghole sucking his own dick.
I just wish you could tag armatard in posts like this. I was hoping he'd come in here and get stuck for several days. In fact I've not seen him on here for ages, I hope he's alright
I didn't feel like pretending to be "him" today.
Maybe next time.
didn't felt like sucking all them donkey dicks, eh?
>bongs finally win a single time
>CHALLENGER BEST TNAK!!!!!!!!!!
The British care so much about stuff like this that they send the best crews. The challenger is the worst of the big 3 western tanks
Challenger the hedgehog says “gotta go fast”
I demand a recount
Oh retards and Russians ever said chally is shit. I won't argue its the best tank ever, but its pretty good and can do the job its expected to do. Russia has the luxury of having like 6 different MBT's of varying quality in service, so they can always say "well t-90tbfuv has x capability on paper so it's better"
Warriortard tried to get new material but defaulted back to his factory settings of mobik peasantry
This is the way of the warriortard
You are a giant gay
