2014 - 2017
After seeing the picture of the Abrams glacis layout, are you ever planning on doing similar analysis of Western tanks and armor systems?
I'm afraid not. OPSEC really limits the amount of information available to the public, so I would be speculating more than analyzing.
I really appreciate your articles. Even for a tank enthusiast like me, they offer whole lot of new and interesting insights. My personal wish would be that hopefully you could at some time cover the Soviet equivalent of a 'starship; a tank so advanced it was almost ahead of its time: the T-64!But thanks again, and keep up the good work!
Thank you so much! However, I have to say to you what I've said to many others: please try to help improve the articles by finding flaws! I would really appreciate it if outdated info or faulty logic was pointed out or if new and more reliable information were made available. Sometimes you'll see that some parts of my articles are "under renovation" like the T-72 Protection article, which means that I am currently editing some older claims and adding new content. Most of my time is currently spent doing such things and not on writing new articles. It's far too difficult to compile enough info to complete each article in the span of a few months while maintaining a normal life, and sometimes I lose interest if a very long article is required to cover all the aspects of the topic. If nothing else, I hope that you understand my erratic uploading patterns.About the T-64 stuff: I'm afraid that there is no real reason for me to devote precious time and effort on the T-64 when the T-72 is so similar in many respects, and there is plenty of information on the T-64 available at the btvt.info site owned by Andrei Tarasenko, who is a bona fide historian and a big T-64 enthusiast. If you are truly interested in learning about the T-64, I suggest going to his site (use Google Translate liberally). If you have specific questions and no other site can provide the answer, you can try the Tank-Net and Sturgeonshouse forms. Both are sometimes visited by knowledge folk from the Russian Otvaga forum and Polish Militarium forum. If all else fails, I could try to find something for you.Hope that helps, and thanks again for your pleasant comment.
