Taiwan 01.16.2017..
Taiwan began two days of military drills Tuesday simulating an attack by China as the government sought to reassure the public in the face of deteriorating relations with Beijing.

The island’s armed forces gathered in central Taiwan for annual drills that saw troops practice combat skills with tanks, attack helicopters and artillery.

“The military has active measures to deal with the situation in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea so the public can rest assured. We will enhance training 365 days a year,” defence spokesman Chen Chung-chi said.

In addition to the drills, the air force confirmed Tuesday an upgrade of Taiwan’s 143 F-16s was under way, with materials supplied by US aerospace company Lockheed Martin which manufactured the jets.

“Taiwan is the first country in the world to upgrade the F-16 A/B fighters to F-16 V. We are enhancing our aerial capabilities to ensure national security,” an air force official told AFP.

First photo in post# 32, how old is that tank?
Probably as old as your parents, maybe grandparents. This tank was build back in the 60s, though I believe the M60A3 series is what Taiwan runs with, so that's maybe 10 years later, roughly 1970s. Moreover, I'm more concerned as to why they still have a batch of LVT-5's, that things date back from the Vietnam War.

@Anonymous Fighter after several advise from senior moembers and a warning, you continues to post simple videos from your own youtube thread with no comment at all, and in many cases not even associated with the thread they were posted to.

This last post was at least in the correct thread.

Did you ever read our Rules of Behavior?

Deino linked you to them.

You are not supposed to have single line posts, or posts with no comments.

You are not supposed to engage in name calling.

You are not supposed to start new threads unless you thoroughly check to make sure there isn;t one about that material yet, and then you are suposed to say something about the technology you post in.

Then, after posting for a few days...you simply stipped. never responding to the morderators, or fixing the issues. Perhaps you self-suspended.

I am giving you a 3 month suspension from SD.

When you come back (if you should decide to do so), please try and read and obey the rules...and listen to long time members who try to help you.
