Re: Small Arms Thread

Actually the most advanced AKs in the world are made in guess what the US. and robinson arms makes very good AK copies in the form of the VEPR series of rifles all very well made and far outperform the finnish version and far more accurate. http://www.vulcanarmament.com/cgistore/store.cgi?page=/new/...

Re: Artillery Discussion Thread

exactly with the gun turret being modular it can be fitted on a wheeled version if needed and its probably ready for tests in India if indeed Rhienmittal is sending a gun for testing. so yeah i'll be glad to seen the PZH2000 wheeled baby, nice firepower and good quality as well.
