Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread - August 9 , 2014

Did anyone observe how smooth the hydropneumatic suspension is compared to the jerky torsion bar on the tin cans. Even the Kestrel has much better suspension than the wheeled junk from the tin can land.

^The accusation is that it didn't hit the target. It was due to guidance errors of the LGB Kit, the Israeli Griffin, apparently. Although vested interests outside and even on this forum insinuates that it is somehow a failure by Tejas.

Either the cameraman is not showing the missile hits or their camera is so bad that a close and quick flyby by the missile is not visible. I think it is the latter. If the warhead is not exploding, how can we see the missile passing by with such poor resolution broadcast.

Ideally I would like a burst + auto to cater for all situations but if that cannot be done then an full auto with a low rate of fire and high reliability is fine.
