    It really stands out from the competition. Looks like a Green Bay Packer tank.o_O:D

    This news is a bit dated, since no one posts it yet, here you go.

    The thing that surprised me was how engine failure was a problem for Indian T-90s. Technically they should be more robust since they operate in a much hotter environment.

    I feel strange too. T-72s are designed and made by Russia, so are the T-90s. Theoretically, what T-72s can do, T-90s also can do it and do it better. The Indian send their best tanks and crew with eager to show off and win the game. How come the two 'best' tanks suddenly failed at the same time at the final stage? Anything that we didn't know here? I heard the Russian use T-72B3M with improved engine of 1130 horse power rather than the rest of T-72B3 with 950 horse power engine.

    imgur is my favorite photo host site but sometime it just doesn't work well. use ImageShack instead

    Maybe the crew pushed the engine too hard in the final leg. The Indian team performed pretty stabily in the qualification rounds.
