    We Americans also have Fregates Kampfschiffs.
    But………we jumped to US military Space Carriers with fleets of multi-purpose stealth space fighters with photonic laser precision systems some decades ago.
    But we keep it under cover classified to let our enemies go dry……………………LOL! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5ff3f00fc4d3a312110108440304de928a0698e601a4ca618664cae115dffbb0.jpg

        jesus dude calm the fuck down!

        do u want me to give u the run down on Russia?
        i support and love russia but u want me to crack open a can of Fucked Up Russian history?

        The USA won their independence by never giving up!
        it was a war of attrition u monkey! they didnt even have an army!

        Lets compare that to Russia when the Jewish bolsheviks came to town shall we?
        Did u love your communism?
        did u love its collapse and the bread lines?
        did u love your nuclear sub being stolen?
        did u love you Chernobyl?
        Did u love your Tsar’s family being murdered?
        did u love ebing invaded by Germany and being rescued by US money and GM Designs for your T-34 tanks? Yes it was designed by the USA! sloped armour!

        Now i like Russia but dont make me say bad things about your nation for which there are many!

        What u dont know is that Putin and Trump are allies! dont believe this bullshit website! The US intelligence services helped the KGB get Putin into power! did u know that?

        What…. u think the USA wanted drunk or corrupt leaders selling off or controlling Russian military bases and paying your spetznaz to work for mafia? Do u think they wanted someone getting their hands on Russian nuclear launch capabilities and making a ransom on the world?

        You were helped! u had fucking bread lines!
        They helped get putin in power and away from Berezovsky’s control! They even tricked Boris into thinking Putin would work for him! how wrong they were!

        u were transition to communism by jews!
        u were collapsed and controlled again by Jews!
        u were rescued by the former KGB working with US intelligence to get control of your country back from the mafia!

        You should be sucking US dick right now!

            Fake news.

          3. Justin says:

            Russia Today documentary on T-34 is fake news?
            if i sent u the doco and gave u the exact time in which the Russia Today host says “it was a USA design” will you send me a video of yourself punching your own face?

          4. Lone Ranger says:

            According to your own govt RT is fake news…so…

          5. Justin says:

            Russia Today is Russian state owned media!

          6. Lone Ranger says:

            So is BBC and RTL…
            90% of the U.S. media is owned by one of the Big Six media corps whom are funded by the CIA and papa Soros under the table.
            Your point?
            I thought so…

          7. Justin says:

            Agree and this 90% hates Trump!
            But dont u believe Trump helps the Jews?
            But dont the Jews own the media?
            im confused!

            i bet u cant explain it!
            ull think of some bullshit im sure!

          8. Lone Ranger says:

            There are multiple factions of jews.
            The different factions fight eachother in the U.S. and in Israel as well.
            You have your right wing zionist conservatives like Bibi a buddy of Trump.
            And you have neo marxist trotskyites whom hate Israel and Russia and want full on planetary communism.
            Thats most the democratic party and some moles in the GOP too…

          9. Justin says:

            The Jews u and i focus on are the assholes!
            You know the ones!
            The mistake u make is thinking that Trump is allied with them! If this is true then u should say the same for putin! doesnt he sometimes do things for israel? Doesnt he have jews in his country with serious power?

            Trump and Putin have jewish octopus wrapped around their face!
            However these are both very smart men who have the full backing of their own military! What u are seeing is a military operation AGAINST this jewish octopus that has players in key positions in govt and military!

            Both Russia and the USA were beholden to these people because of the insurance policies they had in place! they owned the media! they could say u are a pedo and there is nothing u could do about it! they control if u are elected or not! how do u beat these people? how did JFK beat them? The same way putin did!

            u promote yourself as someone who can help them, once u are in power, u fuck them and u entrench your own power so u cant be removed!

            When putin was head of Russia the globalists didnt panick! but when trump and putin are in charge then they have something big to panick about!

            Now there is a war! what we see on the surface is mostly fake news and media fighting and bad mouthing both leaders! but what happens underneath this is very big! The ultimate game of secrets!

            what have we got today?

            China with fake gold
            Corona virus
            u can protest

            u cant go to church
            Does this makes sense to u?

            And so much more!

            All of this shit… all of it… is the war! the last war!
            Will we be free? or will we all become slaves!

            If they traffick humans, steal out money, transfer our tech, rape kids, sell baby parts, do u think they will care about us?

            u go to jail if with more than 2 people? fines?

            For a flu like virus!

            all of this is designed so Trump cant be elected!
            Why dont they want him re-elected! why are they going all out with the help of china to stop this?

            Because in the game of thrones u either win or u die! there is no middle ground!


            Example Clinton, ehud Barack, bibi, bill clinton, Epstein, brennan, comey?


            if u are a minion of these people and u are caught up in this, u might give information to save ur own skin! who has been killed recently? many people!

            Trump and putin have some big information coming out!

            u and i are on the same side!
            u just dont know how bad china is!

          10. Lone Ranger says:

            I agree with you.
            Whats your take on Trump pulling troops from Germany and deploying them to Poland instead?

          11. Justin says:

            NATO works against USA interests!
            Nato has protected Europe yet Europe gives very low amounts to NATO!
            Yet Euro nations make deals with Russia for Russian energy!

            Trump’s arguement is this:

            If we spend 4% of our own GDP on NATO and Germany spends 1% (yet are required to spend 2%) for more than a decade YET buy Russian energy and making Russia wealthier, then why are we here protecting you?

            Pulling Troops out of Germany and bringing many of them home is to prepare for a civil war! Yes there is a strong chance of a civil war within the USA including some areas of the military fighting one another!

            Example, Trump has Domestic Authority over the national guard (army guard, airforce guard and navy guard) and also the marines!
            The troops he pulls out are exactly these troops!
            In a civil war, these troops fight for the president and the rest of the armed forces can fight for whomever they choose! The state they are from, Trump, a militia! They can even be on the side of a rebellion to oust a sitting President under the 2nd amendment and the right to overthrow a tyranical govt!

            This is actual rules! crazy but true!

            NATO is in Brussles! (think about it)
            EU HQ is in Brussels
            WHO HQ is in Brussles
            UN HQ is in Brussles!

            Do the math!
            Why did trump pull out of the UN back world criminal court?
            Why did Trump pull out of the UN human rights council (which was lead by saudi arabia for 8 years lol)

            NATO is another money drain on the USA so that Europe can keep its own money and invest it in other areas!

            There is a Pretend enemy! the pretend enemy is Russia vs USA!
            its bullshit ever since the Soviet union fell!
            its made up!
            just like al-quieda and isis is made up!
            its a justified enemy to spend trillions of money on arms and create conflict, division! Designed! Imagine for a moment if Russia and USA were allies! close allies! What could the Globalists do?

            It illustrates why they force the USA and Russia against each other!
            Now u can understand their process!

            “you dont fight Russia and America, you get Russia and America to fight each other! And destroy each other”!


          12. Lone Ranger says:

            Thats what the globalists want.
            But not under Putins wach.
            Hope Trump wont cave in either.

          13. Justin says:

            Trump and putin are on the exact same side!
            Putin wants whats best for russia and so does trump for USA!

            Trump couldnt do this without russia and russia couldnt do it without putin! Because if the Globalists had control over putin, they would use Russia against the USA! So its a must that putin and trump are on the same side! and they are!

            You know they both hate Soros!
            you will see! big shit about to start happening!
            i believe the most crazy times in our life will start between now and November 3rd!

            Globlalists will try to win at all cost to keep control!

            its already been a crazy year!
            its going to get much worse!
            just remember that “the night is darkest before the dawn”
            bad times means they are dying! crazy times means panick!
            We will win!

            If I had to say something bad about Russia I would say they are to patient and too polite.
            If I was Putin the CIA wouldnt exist anymore…
            As for the U.S. they are profit oriented the more expensive the better the more maintenance need the better.
            The last good jets they made were the F-14, F-15, A-6 Intruder and the A-10.
            Rest is only good against third world countries whom cant shoot back.

          18. Lone Ranger says:

            ‘In 1939, the most numerous Soviet tank models were the T-26 infantry tank and the BT series of fast tanks. The T-26 was slow-moving, designed to keep pace with infantry on the ground. The BT tanks were cavalry tanks: fast-moving and light, designed for maneuver warfare. Both were Soviet developments of foreign designs from the early 1930s; the T-26 was based on the British Vickers 6-Ton, and the BT tanks were based on a design from American engineer J. Walter Christie.
            In 1937, the Red Army had assigned engineer Mikhail Koshkin to lead a new team to design a replacement for the BT tanks at the Kharkov Komintern Locomotive Plant (KhPZ). The prototype tank, designated A-20, was specified with 20 mm (0.8 in) of armour, a 45 mm (1.77 in) gun, and the new Model V-2-34 engine, using less-flammable diesel fuel in a V12 configuration designed by Konstantin Chelpan. It also had an 8×6-wheel convertible drive similar to the BT tank’s 8×2, which allowed it to run on wheels without caterpillar tracks.[16] This feature had greatly saved on maintenance and repair of the unreliable tank tracks of the early 1930s, and allowed tanks to exceed 85 kilometres per hour (53 mph) on roads, but gave no advantage in combat and its complexity made it difficult to maintain. By 1937–38, track design had improved and the designers considered it a waste of space, weight, and maintenance resources, despite the road speed advantage.[17] The A-20 also incorporated previous research (BT-IS and BT-SW-2 projects) into sloped armour: its all-round sloped armour plates were more likely to deflect rounds than perpendicular armour.”

          19. Justin says:

            T-26 was British Design
            T-34 was American Design!

He is best known for developing the Christie suspension system used in a number of World War II-era tank designs, most notably the Soviet BT and T-34 series, and the British Covenanter and Crusader Cruiser tanks, as well as the Comet heavy cruiser tank.”

            5 min ago if was the whole tank.
            Give it up troll.
            Similar configuration doesnt mean copy or that he designed it.
            He designed the T-26 partially, and thats about it.
            Aside from that more Russian engineers designed U.S. stuff than vice versa, from TVs to radios, to helos and jets, even rocket engines you are using today on the Atlas V and the Antares.
            All Russian ;)

          Or Russia protecting U.S
          ports during the U.S. civil war.
          Russia saved millions of American lives with defeating the bulk of the German forces in WWII.
          Land lease program contributed 7% to all war efforts…
          T-34 has nothing to do with GM.
          Sherman was a bad joke in WWII, Germans nicknamed it Ronson…lol.
          One Tiger could take out 30 Sherman’s by itself at once without breaking a sweat.
          50million Amercants are on foodstsamps, starving, worse than any breadlines during Soviet times.

            1. You’d better call Russia today and tell them that their Documentary on the T-34 is wrong since you seem to know more!


            As for Sherman’s i know the ratio of shermans vs tigers but i also know the number of shermans is what defeated the Tigers!

            i know about France and Russia’s help on the USA in its infancy! i also know of USA help with Russia and why the debt was paid with Alaska!

            My point is this….
            we have a Russian bagging American history and lets just say Russian history isnt exactly something to brag about!

            There are no breadlines because there are food stamps!
            There is financial assistance!
            Every 1st world nation gives their people financial assistance!
            Are they doing it in Russia or Ukraine?
            i doubt it!
            Didnt Russia just lift the age of Retirement 3 or 5 years?

            Whats Russia’s GDP again?

            There are breadlines in the U.S. ad we could see during covid.
            People are burning down everything if their foodstamp is late, which is only good to starve anyways, thats why blacks and hispanics amd poor whites die of diabetes because they are fed with crap.
            They font have Universal healthcare many cant even afford insulin for fuck sake…

            Petro dollar is being ditched slowly but steady.
            Collapse is coming.
            There was no war when the Roman Empire collapsed, or the Soviet-Union.
            But I guess the U.S. Empire will go kicking and screaming the trolls they are..

            How the fuck did we go from the T-34 to Debt?

            It seems to me you are butt hurt on the Tank facts and you need a win to feel better!
            you are pathetic!

            i know about the US debt but since they have had the petro dollar for 70 years or more then they can simply print wealth!
            yes its coming to an end only to be replaced by SDR’s which will be even better for the USA!

            GM Assembled the American tanks and made the engines!
            Christie Went to GM first and they bought the patent to the BT tanks he desiged!
            It was GM that allowed the tank to be built by Russia

    stylish vessel—the idiot amerikans spend luges sums on WWII era carriers—self defeating –something that even US admirals comprehend…but the pentagon must fund so as to prevent the obliteration of their economy and keep their illiterate peasant from becoming more mean, insecure and bitter….their supposed trash (weapons) are so worthless and “secret” that they do not exist…amerikans believe anything; they assert that there is gold in ft Knox……sure—fool’s gold…the slow bumbling US fighters they describe as stealth are easily detected and their sensors r frequently jammed by Russian aero space fighters

      Yet, I am wondering why is Russia so scared in kicking them out of Syria, or out of the Baltic states?
