So the new Chinese MBT? Is that Xi in the drivers seat? Maybe Taiwan is safe.

It's their new Panzerkampfwagen V, 'Paper Tiger'.
They named it in honour of the current great leader of their strategic partner russia.
V for Vladimir.

And yes, Taiwan is safe.

The moment the West stood up for Ukraine, especially the US, Taiwan became much safer.
Stand firm and united and it will hold.

Probably dirt cheap, wonder how driving in snow is and mpg?

What a great point about Taiwan, Arjuna. I totally agree.

As for this tank,I thinks those Chinese letters say three easy payments of only $19.95 USD. Ralphie with a BB gun could put your eye out while you drive it, but no fumes at least. Just point and shoot armament, the breech must be extra. But those little rockets…Danger! Hold elbows close to torso while driving!

Rockets are a good selling point in a traffic jam

Special Operations Tank no doubt!

Low profile, no turret to malfunction and a small crew; what's not to like?

JMcCarroll14 May 2022 3:02 p.m. PST

The Russians are highly interested !!!

Sorry, rubles not accepted.

So if he made a few more copies and arranged for them to fire paintballs, he might be on to something.

Now we're talkin!

You laugh now, but wait until a zillion of these things come over the horizon straight at you. We don't make that many Javelins!

We can use the Ethiopian antitank Spears. The same ones used on the Italian one man tanks in World War II. Knock them on there side and spear the driver.

Tortorella Supporting Member of TMP15 May 2022 9:56 a.m. PST

The exhaust cloud will be more trouble than the breechless gun and the watch yer elbows rockets.

That is always the PRC's strength – their numbers followed by more numbers – repeat. As we saw in the Korean War, they didn't care how many they lost. Because there were many more where those came from.

I do like the suspension! It would make a fun ATV, or something to work around the property.

Tortorella Supporting Member of TMP15 May 2022 8:45 p.m. PST

Your soil would be like cement after a few weeks with those treads. But the neighbors would all want one. Parades anyone?

In the real world, didn't the Chinese army just announce a new tank coming into service?

35thOVI Supporting Member of TMP16 May 2022 3:50 a.m. PST

The US is countering the new Chinese MBT with our latest "Green" fighter jets.
Enjoy. 🙂

Ha! I love it! Only fuel needed is a bowl of Wheaties for the pilot! Not much good for flyers though….

35thOVI Supporting Member of TMP16 May 2022 7:13 a.m. PST

Barrel rolls would be a b-h. 😉

Brought to you by the same company that developed Iran's Q-313 stealth fighters!
