    All European countries are impotent without the presence of US.

    All European countries on one side minus US are no match to Russia any day.

    Germany and UK were European powers before WW2. France was less of a power after Napolean disappeared from the scene.

    The WW2 brought US in Europe permanently and brought USSR/Russia as a great power.

    @J.A.
    Obviously Russia has biggest tank forces of around 15000 tanks followed by China with around 9000, US with 8800 and India with 6600.
    If consider Ukraine they have around 2800 tanks.
    Then, Belarus has 1600, Greece has 1500, Poland has 1000, Italy has around 600, France has 400

    Poland is stronger today than second war in world about 76 and 70 year ago. Easily. But they are in EU and NATO like Germany so they not attack Germany in between 2015-2020.

    Warfare is more mobility & information centric.

    Good for Finland.. the low price are if the tanks remain in Europa (NATO or not NATO).
    it seems that Holland has rethought the plan to completely erase the tanks from the army and held atleast 50 2A6 (1 battalion).

    Leave aside numbers which won't make any difference on the battlefield.Brits, germany and France enjoys qualitative superiority over any tank in service with Russia, OIS or china.

    Can't say about Armata vs challenger/Leopard/Lecrac.
