      Vodniks ARE modified Tigers, which means more expensive than making normal Tigers

      I can't believe things from a game released in 2005 are still considered current/new tech today. F-35s, Vodniks, Iglas/stingers

            The initial attack from Belarus includes a lot of police units because they expected to be dealing with protestors after kicking out the government not a determined military defense. This is thread that pieced that info together.

          That wasn't a Vodnik but either Tornado or some other MRAP/Riotcop vehicle.

      Bro the Abrams is from like 1981. Sure its been upgraded but still. Also don't look at aviation then. C-5's that lifted people out of Vietnam are still in service. There are probably a few F-15 airframes that did patrols over Panama, Iraq, Serbia, Afghanistan, and Iraq again.

        Having the armour drop down like that seems like a really bad idea if you're attempting to use this in sight of the enemy.
