Placing the tanks on the ground, experts have shown terrible incompetence.
Recently, the network stirred a rating of main battle tanks in the world, posted instagram account Worlddigitalnews. Despite the obvious first place a new platform “Armata”, but rather of the T-14 on its base, many places of this ranking raises questions.
Second place goes to the French AMX-56 Leclerc, who is one of the most expensive tanks in the world, but largely outdated, and frankly loses several tanks located further down the list, the South Korean K2, the German “Leopard 2”, and even the Japanese Type 10. And loses almost all indicators at once.
In this context, the 3rd place Leopard 2A7 looks even adequately, but being weak, and order date “Abrams” on the 4th – this is nonsense. There are different ways to evaluate the effectiveness of this war machine, however, this is not to overlook that on the basis of this machine was a completely new, one of the most expensive and effective tanks – K2 “Black Panther” which is better “Abrams” in any of the indicators, ranging from guns, to electronic products and the presence of the automatic loader. In this latest South Korean tank is still cheaper.
The next place is ridiculous – Chinese type 99, which no one action is not seen at all, not even made Altay Turkish origin, but most issues are the last three places – the Challenger 2 is located higher than the Ukrainian T-84U “Oplot” and T-90MS. The Challenger is a true retro in a modern battle tank is armed with an artillery system that with a minimum of changes is in service with the British army since the late 40’s. Neither of which under modern conditions it is impossible to speak at all, rifled gun in the 21st century is ridiculous.

And then the authors just messed up. Yes, if you compare BM “Oplot” and T-90MS, it is possible to debate about the benefits of the machines to each other, but the T-84U “Oplot” is not the same as BM “Oplot” is just a slightly modified and brought at least to any minimum standard of T-80 Soviet production. This tank was snowed under European competition tanks, and nothing could be done against the latest modifications of T-90, equipped with systems similar to the tank T-14 “Armata”.
