Russias G5 system of missile defense leaves far behind the S-400 systems that are coming into operation today. It is able to counter space attacks, said Russias Air Force Commander-in-Chief Col.-Gen. Alexander Zelin.

Yea, and that T-80 tank was such a success.
Hopefully it won’t get into the wrong hands before Israel and the U.S. clean house in the Middle East.
They sound much like the Iranian leadership in exaggerations about their weapons.
Great, now the aliens will know. Thanks, MSM.
More bs from Putin and his commie buddies.
Exactly. I saw on TV that during the height of the cold war that the USSR only had 6 icbm capable of hitting the US. I do not believe a word they say about Ruuuuusky weaponry.
When all you have to fight with is bilge water, might as well toss it and see what happens.
An M-48 most likely could have torn a T-80 up, an M-60 definitely, M-1 no contest.
I don’t believe any of it either.
Scuds, Katusha’s, Quassams....how about MLRS and ATACMS.
We just need the balls to use them!
With a terminal velocity in excess 4,000 MPH, I doubt the -400 will take anything out
For fun, this is what they would see just before the flashbulb goes off
Well they’ve had such good luck with their subs and torpedos. Boom!
If true it would be because we didn’t gift Russia with our space tech like we did China. We’ve learned so much over the years...
“An M-48 most likely could have torn a T-80 up”
Sure, and a F-4 would tear a Su-30 apart (pilots being equal) too, right? (sarc)
Check out the super advanced white duct tape holding these babies together at the bottom of the photo!
Only later varients of the M-60 had a stabilized gun allowing "shoot on the move", and it was only effective at fairly low speeds. I don't think true night vision sights came out until the M1 Abrams. The M48 would have been meat on the table for a T80 in most tactical situations.
If the M60 were still a viable system, the Marines would probably still be using them -- they aren't. The Marines use their tanks somewhat differently than the Army & the M1 design reflects that. Slowly the M1 is getting things, like a telephone that allows a dismount to converse with the tank commander, a diesel generator that allows the tanks systems to be powered without the gas turbine enging engaged, etc.
