    Yes. Will not elaborate on that here, it's inflamatory.

    Of anyone only he could try to recreate the atmosphere, but he failed somehow. I suspect it wasn't Fomenko' fault, but scripters/editorials. This version of the show just didn't felt right. Bland, or bleak. Generic.

    Does anyone here interested in photos of specific ship details from IMDS-2011? I suspect that there will be lots of usual general overview ones, so no point doing those for me. But i could try to pick some specific details. Just aim my hand, so to speak.

    He does make many good points, and in general, he is right: there are a lot of myths about Soviet tanks, and there is a lot of misinformation around.

    If you only have something infantile to say maybe don't say it.

    I wholeheartedly agree. But the delivery leaves much to be desired. It looks as if narrator is making excuses, but that's a LAST THING one should do if he want's to convince anyone. If you feel that you're wronged, you should PUSH your opinion, not beg to be listened.

    Imho he forgot the most important fact that Soviet tanks never met their contemporary except in Battle for Golan Heights,but the T-55,T-72 were pounded by M1A1 which was generation after it not to forget that the enemy always had air superiority.
    I would agree though that Russian tanks compared to western one appear to be less comfortable for its crews but these same tanks gave a good account in Indian Army.

    My point was different -- I feel that the narration style, heavily on the offended side, heavily detriments from the point that narrator actually tries to make. "We are no worse than you" is a supremely counterproductive approach in trying to get others to listen to your opinion.
