This blog was created with the intention of clarifying common misconceptions and mistakes, as well as to discuss the qualities of Russian armoured fighting vehicles in minute detail. Each article is intended to be a comprehensive overview for each vehicle in technical terms and how they affect the performance of the vehicles in practice, i.e their combat capabilities. Each article begins with an introduction that consists of a brief but densely packed summary of the history of each fighting vehicle, but the contents of the articles are dedicated entirely to a technological review. We try to make sure that the information used is absolutely reliable, but there will always be some mistakes hidden away somewhere in each article. To improve the quality of the blog, please do not hesitate to point them out.
