Very Russian, weird turret (two man crew? plus remote control turret). Prepainted in orange insignia so gtg for 'liberating' those 'oppressed' Russians in Ukraine.

Yeah I saw on another site that its a two man crew, and that the turret is all automated.  THe plan is to make an AFV out of the basic chssis as well to replace the BRM / BMP/ whatever the heck tracked AFV they are using these days.  Of more import to us her in Canada was the announcement of the resumption of production and modernisation of the TU-160M Blackjack.    These bad boys have been flying as a pair, with 2 Mig-31 interceptors, and two refueler planes, along Alaska and over in Europe.  I would imagine if they have more than 14 flying, they will start coming to Canada.. the MiG-31s dissuading any CF-18s from getting within 120kms.
