Kuwait Army deployed battle tanks in Saudi Arabia

February 16, 20161 Comment

Kuwaiti Army deployed a M-84 main battle tanks in  Saudi Arabia for North Thunder military exercise.

The M-84 main battle tank is based on the Soviet T-72 but with several modifications, including a domestic fire-control system, improved composite armor, and a 1000-hp engine. The M-84 entered service with the Yugoslav People’s Army in 1984. The improved M-84A version entered service a few years later.

The M-84A is armed with a 125 mm smooth bore cannon. The gas cylinder positioned in the middle of the barrel is shielded with a thermal coating that minimizes deformation of the barrel from high temperatures and ensures it is cooled at the same rate during rapid firing.

The M-84 uses an automatic loader, which enables it to sustain a firing rate of 8 rounds per minute.

    i want to ask a question before going directly to my public announcement here. If I got a legal loan online it would be as easy as it will refer to all these built / duplicate loan testimonials that I read online, so why did my charming husband refuse to apply for a loan online five times after being scammed of 4000 euros? All that stopped when a family friend referred us to a reputable loan company known as Jackson Ben Loan Firm. I was surprised to get the amount of my loan of 45,000 euros so i know he is trustworthy and understanding.
