We parade proudly what we want. Those tanks are paid with hard cash, 200 M€ for 100 of them. We are quite proud of our armoured brigades 250 Leo 2s are quite a force. Especially compared to our war time tank division where the core were war trophy t-34s and Klims, together with german jagdpanzer IIIs.That's a German counterpart/response to soviet-era tanks and it costs about ~7mln. On the other hand, used tanks cost less but it seems that non of epic Finn pride got hurt when parading foreign equipment.
@Akim, I have serious doubts about it. There is no way that our military can produce an advanced vehicle. Design yes, but production is way out of league. No factory is either operating, nor it has capacity to produce equipment. Military is in sorry state as well courtesy of NATO buddies and theiving privatization conducted by puppet governments.
Military institute had lots of ground breaking projects but this one is more likely a fan made concept.
Even if it was not, it uses inferior ammo and gun compared to T-14 since 2a82 has claimed at least 30% increased efficiency over previous generation (2a62 m5) due to new ammo. That's not even counting planed modernization of "armata" platform such as modular armor and ability to mount 2a83 152mm.
I am sure that after Serbia joins EU, your military industry will start to recover, together with other fields.
