What kind of "grenadelauncher" is that??? It doesnt seem to be mounted even straight? Its not below the barrel as it would interfer with the magasin well.

Yeah, they look pretty.

I'm more impressed with the snazzy looking T62s.

The fact that intelligence assessments feel the need to comment on how well fed a part of the North Korean armed forces are in the 21thC says a lot.
