    • I don’t see how the Moskali can resist the French, British and American long range Howiters combined with the eventual HIMARS systems and now these from Poland?! Also the Patriot systems are coming for air defense. I’m no expert but I see these systems up against a bunch of T-62s and I have to smile.

    • I was wrong on the British supplying the FH-70s. So to correct, a very big thanks to Estonia for the art kits.
