That's simply the Revolution, it is NOT the A7. The Revolution is a modular setup, and you are just looking at 2 different setups. The green one doesn't have the sensors, the "A7" (ie the tan one with netting) does.

You do have a point, the gunner's sight is in the A4 position. It's a Revo with more bells on and an umbrella then.

Think you have what it takes to enlist into the military? You sure about that?

But in fairness I am not certain if all six units were done by the same shipyard. However strikes by workers have increased and payments have been delayed at times.

The big thing that surprised people from what I read was train filled with BTR80s but it turned out they were for Bangladesh:

The tactical Segway.


From the Russian expo:

Things I approve, even though I know it's sexist and misogynistic. Let me have this flaw in my character on Fridays.

The Lada Niva or the Shia Impaler ?

There's some life in the Armata program it seems.

But this is before further budget cuts. It's starting to look like the initial T90 production and well, the Yeltsin years. With the notable exception that Putin can move unaided.
