One obvious point about this design is how it continues the Soviet Union's emphasis on assault.
With the low turret, it is practically impossible to take a hull down position.  This is not so important if attack is your plan.

The new Russian T-14 Armata rehearsing for the Victory Day parade. Apparently only has two crew members, and it's under 50 tons. I'm not a tanker, but I can't imagine that this is the kind of vehicle you want to take into a street fight in Grozny, what with having to rely on cameras for visibility just about everywhere but to the low front.

can you imagine the liberal shitstorm that would happen is the US introduced a full up military parade each year through DC?
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Especially parading an ICBM like it was representative of the country's power. No western country would dream of it.
