      Do you count those atvs with plywood on them the airsofters use as real tanks?
      If so I can understand why youd think t14 is a tank.

    they have a vulnerable component, or the ring itself is exposed, maybe they were only planning on shells and ATGM's hitting it but now it keeps happening with even very minor drone hits

    Oh thanks. I have seen several vids with the spinning turret and wondered wtf was going on. Was the crew dead and slumped over the controls? This puts the t-90 ve Bradley fight in a new light as the bradley might have lost had thr t-90s turret not spun uncontrollably.

    Holy shit what an embarrasment.

      ah, I can explain this.
      The problem is likely because the T-90's rely on imported electronics that Russia can no longer import.
      They attempted to salvage the needed electronics from household appliances, but the most important was the washing machines.
      Unfortunately, they didn't figure out how to flash new firmware, and sometimes it just gets stuck in spin cycle.

      Shouldn't have used the washing machine components Ivan

      So this is why russians stole those washing machines?

      unironically yes. they were 100% pilfering appliances for the electronics.

      Not really sure that this shows what you're trying to show. It is definitely very different from the case where a T-90M got spinning turret syndrome from two Bradleys

      It looks much more like intentional/panic scanning. Near the end of the video you can see the turret begin to rotate in a very deliberate way, along with the commander's thermal viewer snapping into position to override the turret controls.

      So what if the Ukrainians exterminate the Russian Army to the last man before starting their counteroffensive, as seems to be the current state of affairs? That'd mean T-90M will never get fixed.

    Nyet. You see, tovarich, the spinning is a good trick. It prevents enemy infantry from getting into the disabled tank and rape the crew.

    i assume it refers to the bradley video
    regardless it's probably a gyroscope giving out incorrect data that the FCS is trying to compensate for
    had that issue once when the gyroscopes that measures hull rotation malfunctioned and reported a rotation of 58 degrees a second when the vehicle was stationary

      oh and if that happens the CBIT is supposed to realize something is wrong and turn off stabilization
      but sometimes it doesn't, so the gunner has to do it manually

      and it's an incredibly rare issue
      usually when gyros malfunction they just die
