      • Could be operational but just as likely a vid during training. Looks like they are using "dumb" optical sights (like ourselves) rather than a digital self orientating system. (possibly M137) I wonder if it causes problems with half of their arty corps using soviet Mils (6000) and the other half using NATO mils (6400)

            We largely don’t have APC mounted infantry either

            SP Arty is needed for manoeuvre warfare, being able to more quickly escape counter-battery fire is a secondary advantage of it

            • We barely have armoured cavalry.
              For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.
