>Russians are just larping Original War
They can't make pic related anymore?
>tfw no zsu-57 STC since it was sold for an oligarchs yacht
Well, Finland planned on creating a modernized ZSU-57-2M, but made only one prototype. The plans included radar and configurable ammo, but the project was trashed due to costs.
What a shame. Big-auto-gun tanks are cool.
Life in the Successor States isn’t so bad. If you can cope with having to plow a rocky field because your agrobot lacks a cable six centimeters long, then you’re perfectly suited to life in them there hills. If you enjoy the irony of zooming across the universe in a JumpShip, only to be forced to ride a jackass six klicks through a downpour, then man, you’ve got it made in these Successor States. ”

How does it look more cobbled together than those flakpanzers?
Flakpanzers weren't field modifications and they weren't completely rusted.
Well, unlike that Russian abomination, when you look at a flakpanzer you get the impression that at some point during the design process an engineer was involved and that the people constructing it had some sort of drawing or blueprint they could consult.
I'm not even sure what role the Russian vehicle is intended to fill. The gun crew is exposed which suggests it's not meant for infantry support. The low-caliber means it wouldn't make a good SPG. Its extremely high-profile limits its effectiveness against AFVs. And its primitive optics, manual traverse, and old-fashioned ammo mean it would suck against fixed-wing, rotary-wing, or unnamed aircraft.
I get that it's better than not having anything at all, but is it really?
2nd best army in the world btw
Is this technically an IFV, tank or tankette? Or some kind of fire support vehicle?
and today a new term was born.
>Jankette: (noun) A vehicle or object that possesses characteristics or qualities associated with both "jank" and "tankette." It refers to something that is improvised, haphazard, or low-quality (jank), while also displaying features or attributes reminiscent of a small, lightly armored military vehicle (tankette). The term implies an unconventional and perhaps unconventional-looking vehicle or object with a mix of ruggedness and ad-hoc design elements.
I love ChatGPT.
congrats on coining a new term
SPAA or maybe a tank destroyer
it's a self-propelled anti-air gun
In WT it would be a SPAAG, in WoT a TD, in formal reality an infantry support, in practical reality a rust coffin.
it's perfectly capable of killing leopard 1
Sounds like an old Soviet joke.
>It is perfectly capable of killing Leopard 1, if by Leopard 1 you mean 1 Leopard and by Leopard you mean the feline.
Just as a 2A42 is perfectly capable of killing a T-90.
leo 1A5 with applique armor is perfectly capable of resisting 57mm AP, at least from the front. And I assume that a shitbox like that is not getting the fancy 57mm APFSDS slavrats supposedly have developed/
It's a deffgun trak, ya grot
It's a Blyat Fighting Vehicle
Infantry support gun

Too much TF2, they think spycrabbing irl will identify them as friendlies
Though to be honest, they should know from experience that spycrabs get killed like half the time anyway by new F2Ps, which Ukraine has a lot of.
The de-evolution of man.

Advanced ISIS tactics!
Also so apparently this actually works somewhat?
in ARMA3, rolling sideways is faster than crawling.
These guys are probably just conscripted milsim autists
would you rather stand up and present a larger target? rolling looks fucking stupid, but if it saves your life...
he's rolled all the way from syria to ukraine
and he's not showing any signs of stopping

i would clear that for a drone strike so fast. eliminate it, whatever it is asap.
>the two guys at the front crouch walking like they're in a video game
At first I thought it's on T-34 base
Looks like it would make a good model. I hope someone gets a few more pictures of it.
Actually, I don't think anyone produces s-60 models. Maybe one day.
budget WT auf E-100
Compared to the MTLB it looks kino. It's somalia tier but kino.
This isnt even Syrian army tier, its fucking worse
So this is what winning looks like, huh?
Damn I want to pet a Kangaroo.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING VIETNAM!
>newest russian technical just dropped
I low key love that shit. I'm looking forwards to the next months, we will see some wacky shit welded together.
Really goes well with the whole ork theme.
>no tension on the tracks
Ork technology works because Orks think it does. There's a 40k book where someone examines a crashed Ork vehicle and points out that the engine and transmission weren't even linked with an attitude of 'ain't that the goddamnest thing'.
It's really happening, isn't it
>Still made by Ukranians
russians cant do anything right, i hope atleast nukes will in good enough state to reach moscow
Ukraine has a surprisingly prolific video game industry
Stalker 2 got delayed by the invasion, for this reason alone I want to see all ziggers killed.
At least we'll get a new red forest map with plenty of Hispanicy loot
That is nice and all, but now it's crawling with snorks
"I hope you know how to operate machinegun kid!"
also, how tf did the metro games get such translations compared to atomic heart?
Having a devs that care helps
Also I only ever play the subbed version
Wait a minute, what role is it even supposed to fulfil?
Something, anything to stem the bleeding of armor
I thought Russia was pulling out thd T-54/55's due to having spare 100mm rounds. What's the point of this conversion?
Engine still worked, but the turret was fucked. Monke demands all vehicles that can be made to run be sent, so they slap whatever's on hand on it and call it an assault gun.
There is no tactical benefit. There is never a tactical benefit. Russians have the exact same mindset as orks. When they see something sleek, smooth (and expensive) like the F-35, they view it as a complete waste. After all, the Russians are uniquely capable of making reliable and cost-effective weapons like the Am-47 and the T-34 which can easily match their Western counterparts. And this is all thanks to the average Russians resourcefulness and ability to improvise, it’s like a whole nation of Pierre Spreys. This belief is the Russian equivalent of Rule of Cool, the more improvised it is, the cheaper it is, the better it is. It never occurs to a Russian that maybe they wouldn’t have to improvise if they weren’t so endemically corrupt. Nor does it occur to them that maybe quantity and improvisation simply isn’t a replacement for quality and innovation. To them, war is all about dakka; and Russia has got da most dakka, da biggest dakka, and da most boyz. All dat finkin is for Westerners.
A tank is a tank
actually looks based tbqh senpai
love the orPrepHole aesthetic
Bringing out the premiums
the hell is that thing?
Hilariously survivable is what it is.
Pick one, any HE shell that hits it causes it to overpressure.
I think it's actually IMR-1 combat engineering vehicle that somehow lost its crane and excavator for that gun and not a basic bitch T-55
Or a BTS-4 or similar series recovery variant.
It has the raised superstructure and the slant-top raised Commander position.
Then some vodka-fuelled Ivan has welded on the S-60.
We back in 1943.
In all seriousness, they would be much better off converting their T-55 chassis into battlefield recovery vehicles instead of these abominations.
>no modern armor engine controls sights or aps
This is literal dark ages level regression of knowledge. Actual history book example of a nation regressing technologically happening before our eyes. Kids in a few centuries will have to answer multiple choice questions about how badly the ancient nation called the Russian federation fell and the correct answer will be the worst regression possible and be free marks for any student who can just remember "and then it got worse"
>Actual history book example of a nation regressing technologically happening before our eyes.
It has been happening for a while.
Russia has lost the capability to domestically produce many of the things the Soviet union could.
They were never a true autarky, not even remotely, but since the USSR fell apart, they have struggled horribly to put ONE true new MBT or fighter design (not T-90 "new") into serial production, and that was BEFORE they were cockblocked from importing critical parts from abroad, now these projects are dead in the water.
If there's not a history book written about this called "Then it got Worse: The Russian Military in Ukraine 2022-2023", I'll be very disappointed.
Sounds more like a PhD
No, the subtitle should be "an exhaustive history of the Russian nation-state"
It should be titled "The special military operation and its consequences have been a catastrophe to the Russian people".
The numbers in T series don't actually correspond to a year of design, accepted in service or introduction.
They just sort of kind of fall roughly within ballpark
>The numbers in T series don't actually correspond to a year of design, accepted in service or introduction.
>They just sort of kind of fall roughly within ballpark
True, actual design of T-54 was completed in 1945, and T-55 is a turret upgrade (and OP pic does not contain turret
The T-54/55 series actually entered serviced in 1948
>and then it got worse
It's hilarious how accurate this overused term is when describing russia.
What's really embarassing is that they already did better with exactly that gun and exactly that chassis back in the 50's.
>exactly that chassis
less one road wheel.
Vietnam might still have some ZSU-57-2 in service for the Russians to use.
Ugh…lost technology what could’ve been

That's just superior Russian anti-AI training. Advanced pattern recognition systems will ignore that sight as corrupted data.
Too heavy for an MT-LB or are they running out of those too?
shit must be dire if they can't even use the tank turret and have to replace it with a AA gun.
The issue isn't that they replaced it with a 1950s era AA gun.
The issue is that they did a WH40k-tier ork job at bodging them together. Ukies smashing stuff together in a car repair shop can make stuff look vaguely professional, like the ersatz BMPT-62 shown in a thread last week. This, OTOH, is just sad.

Lol. Lmao, even

Another day, another Wacky Racing Technical. The fuck is going on over there?
Also, this is very, very important. What pole positions should we place the Abomination, the Flintstone mobile, the MTLB with a Zis bolted to it and this thing in?
I wish I was good at photoshop. I feel like this is a good opportunity to do a gif of the "where's wallace" scene from "The Wire" but replacing Stinger's face with Shoigu and D'Angelo with Prigozhin. "Where's the T90's at Shoigu?"
i like it
Tamiya will soon release it.
Fucking games workshop is taking notes, 50 bucks says this will be an Ork or Imperial Guard vehicle within a year.
hobbylet detected, its literally just a predator autocannon on a Chimera chassis.
...You DO kitbash your own trukks and battlewagons, right? Surely you don't only use 5 identical GW made vehicles?
It's a imperial guard Basilisk, but shittier.
they had a designed intent and met specifications
they were not cobbled together in vanyas garage by a drunk vasilli and igor that blew up the acetylene tank and had too be finished by boris with jb weld and duct tape
New Russian drone just dropped
Tactical couch incoming!!!!
Seriously though, that thing got some good air time.
r*ssians in propaganda
The archive will show I said the ZSU-57 was still relevant for this mission and you all poohpoohed the idea because "muh open top turret"
What unit owned this? Wagner, other mercs, separatists? National Guard since they don't get heavy armor so they improvised? Kadirov's gay army?
The most damage that thing is going to do is give the crew tetanus
Looks like something straight out of ww2. The absolute state.
Looks more like some interwar concept to me
