    I remember we have a thread about "tank racing" in Russia; however, I can't find it anymore. There seems to a new round of "armor racing" and it might worth discussing.

    It' not really racing it's a Triathlon Where the Tank Crews and Vehicles are put through a course of Maneuver, Marksmanship and other tasks. The Russians basically gave everyone a handy cap though by giving the nations the option of Using T72B models or bringing there own tank.

    If it was Racing a Tank or rather a tracked vehicle it would be a very different game. I mean Rather then Main Battle Tanks Teams would be Bringing Howe and Howe Tech Ripsaw Tracked vehicles.

    The term "racing" is what I call it. It is a competition anyway. I read the news that China is sending its type 86 MBT and 03 IFV to Russia. I want to post that news; however, I can't find the thread.

    I always wonder what one will see looking through artillery gun sight, obviously you can't see a target some 16km away. Does it show range, compass bearing, elevation, wind speed etc. etc. ?

    With the gun sight, the artillery gun can be used in the same way as a tank gun just in case the situation demands it.

    A quick question on ERA. Generally speaking, what cal of weapon does it take to trigger it?

    I imagine small arms fire has zero chance of triggering them, but what about heavy machine-guns/AMRs?

    If they designed it right then optimally it should be whatever the cal and above that can threaten the integrity of the base armour to which the ERA is applied on.
