    nah LOL I guess every body with a partial knowledge of the English language, like me, could see the sentence from Friday at 2:42 PM

    "#Gerasimov: In total, 297,000 servicemen will take part in maneuvers #Vostok2018, more than 1,000 aircrafts, helicopters and UAV, up to 36,000 tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers and other vehicles, up to 80 ships and support vessels will be involved"

    might look like this:

    "#Gerasimov: In total, 297,000 servicemen will take part in maneuvers #Vostok2018, more than 1,000 aircrafts, helicopters and UAV, up to 36,000 vehicles including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and armored personnel carriers and other vehicles, up to 80 ships and support vessels will be involved"

    I underlined/stricken what I added/took out

    see? 100% knowledge of the language doesn't help LOL

    I briefly used google to find

    COMBAT TANKS: 20,300
    Russia Military Strength https://www.globalfirepower.com/country-military-strength-detail.asp?country_id=russia

    no idea how credible this is

    Brother check my new G-Shock on Facebook anyway, LOL

    in the meantime I recalled what Guderian had written (if I'm not mistaken) in Achtung: Panzer!

    which was an estimate (1937) of the number of Soviet tanks, 17k (again, if I'm not mistaken),

    and OKW etc. of course didn't believe this (they thought it was like half of that number)

    to later realize Guderian was wrong by UNDERestimating that number (in fact was 20k or so)
