    Default Help - North Korean Tank Photo - Full Frontal

    There are several good quality photos out there showing full frontal shots of the various tanks that were in the October 2010 parade in Pyongyang...like these:

    But full frontal photos of the P'okpoong shown below, are very rare. Does anyone have a good quality full frontal photo of this tank that they can share? Thanks in advance...

    Interesting MANPAD mount. Is that a common thing on the t-62/t-72 class tanks? I haven't seen that before.

    No, nor is the KPV-T mount.

    Thanks calimero2...I've seen this one as well. It's probably the best of all the P'okpoong pics to appear so far...

    Thanks Siberian wolf...I have seen these shots as well. It looks like good quality photos are going to be hard to come by...

    Seems they have a healthy respect for opposing airpower.

    Very nice looking tanks, however, it's too bad the North Koreans don't mark their military vehicles with their national emblem.

    All their healthy respect for opposing airpower and MANPAD won't do them any good...

    IIRC folks at TankNet came in to conclusion that the vehicles in your pictures and the pic in Wikipedia are actually latest upgrades to Chonma-ho tank while the tanks with huge round turrets in pics posted by Siberian wolf are actually Pokpung-ho. Notice that in the your pics the driver is in left side of the tank like in T-62 while in Siberian wolfs pics the driver is in middle like in newer Soviet tanks like T-72.
