This Is The New German Tank

Sputnik: Brand New German Tank Showcases Capabilities (Video)

A video has appeared on the Internet showing the capabilities of a new German tank – the MBT Revolution.

The video is said to have been posted on the German group Rheinmetall’s official YouTube channel, according to the website warspot.ru.

The vehicle, according to the developers, is planned to become a serious competitor to Armata tanks, however if that is the case it will happen no earlier than 2030.

In fact, this model is a modernized version of the Leopard 2A4 using the modular technology. It should not only replace its predecessor in Germany, but also the Leclerc tank which is in service with the French army.

WNU Editor: This tank looks like a copy of Russia's Armata tank. But what caught my eye in this report was the admission that it would not be on the scene until 2030!!!! A lot can happen in 14 years.

Allot can happen in 14 years. Actually allot can happen in one year. With that said, assuming the United States still exists 14 years from now it is unlikely that it will be a part of NATO nor will it have forces in Western Europe. Furthermore once BREXIT becomes reality other nations are likely going to leave the EU as well. As such, assuming the EU still exists 14 years from now it figures to be only a shadow of what it is now.

Germany is going to need a tank and long range planning is important. I've noticed Russia does well at long range planning. If they are copying the Russian model, this would be helpful. Russia's military is the world's best. If one wants to be the best, it helps to study the best!! I wish US military and political leaders would do this.
