VV is right. In all the wars the Chinese raged against Vietnam they always fielded mass of soldiers that stormed Vietnamese defense lines. Read the war in the 14 century during the Ming dynasty.Chinese soldiers fell in mass but they kept coming.
In Vietnam a battalion has 31 tanks: 3 companies of 10 tanks each plus the commanding tank.
Viva is a quality guy....and he adds to it by having 20+ chinese trolls here for breakfast whenever he pleases ...they honestly don't know how bad it looks optically for them (to take him on 1 vs 20 and come out worse) lol...it only adds credence to the assertions he makes (and of course the parallels in history like you mention).
Wow thats a really small company size to begin with and only 3 of them in a battalion huh. Happy new year my friend.
Hey Amigo Carlosa late Merry Christmas and Happy new year. Vietnam following big bro Russia is not a bad thing, I hope bro Putin sends some nice gifts this year thoughThat's the traditional Russian/Soviet tank battalion, Vietnam follows that.
Happy New Year my friend!!!
Its how a nation is able to act and exist and have resolve and toughness to make and see a tomorrow....when they are at bare bones, all comforts stripped away and staring at the precipice of annihilation...that is how I judge their ultimate fiber. Vietnam has earned my undying respect on it...probably more than any other in recent times.
Ok that makes sense. Should not be a problem to install the skirts before sending tanks into a battle.
At last Vietnam now has modern tanks. Even if we receive hundreds of T90s, I wonder how can we withstand a possible Chinese tank assault with ten of thousands of more modern tanks on the northern front?
Maybe some time in the future asking the Russians for a more powerful tank.

The VPA has experience in fighting a numerous enemy though. The battle of Quang Tri 1972 when 7 tanks of north Vietnamese army clashed with 130 tanks of Republican Army.

No, less is not more, sometimes it’s a certain death. A weak armor tank is an easy prey for enemy infantry. Take the war in Syria. When launching an attack on Al-Bab, a Turkish tank battalion lost 3 Leopards 2A4 in the first major battle.The IS fighters ambushed the tanks and hit from the side where the armor is thin. A good panzer is a good combination of firepower, mobility and armor. The German army phased out all Leopard 2A4. Well... the Germans sold them to Turkey and Indonesia.Less is more. Harder to spot and harder to aim at 1 tank vs 10 tanks. You're more like to kill masses vs a single tank.
