Small, light, big punch
The Sprut SD eschews balance in the mobility, protection and firepower triangle and instead goes all out for mobility and firepower. It is interesting that Russia still values the air delivered armour capability whilst in the West this has largely fallen by the wayside as vehicle weights have climbed, protection ruling the roost.
What can the UK bring to the armoured vehicles air despatch party, the last air drop of a CVR(T) was ages ago and as CVR(T) leaves service and no replacement in sight for the ancient medium stressed platform, no capability for air despatch with the RAF C17’s and a 16 tonne ramp limit for A400M it looks like the best we could do is a Springer, oh, bugger.[tabs] [tab title=”Video 1″]
