I guess we'll soon get to see if it's better or worse than The Red Rose of Normandy from 2011.  This trailer looks like they just pasted together footage of various WW2 reenactment events.

 

 

That's... pretty damned bad.

How is that any worse than using a Chieftain tank against dragons in Reign of Fire?

 

That one was interesting, it seems dragon's fire is really HEAT as it disabled a mechanized column (Chieftain included) in one fly by, so much for NBC. It also seems is safer to be under a tank than inside the tank.

Speaking of, here is the beloved leader climbing into a very modern and advanced North Korean tank.

 

 

anyone venture a guess what tank that is. :)

PT-76 or the Chicom/NK equivalent.

IIRC NKPA use a modified version called a PT-85

They have both.

It's pretty hard to imagine either vehicle having much of a chance on a modern battlefield.

They are still useful for crowd control, which is the most probable scenario they'll face anyway.

IIRC both are still amphibious though PT-85 is heavy enough to be dubious and are intended for aquatic infiltrations and scouting.

Norks obviously don't think so.

 

(Sign at the bottom says Gimhae, a city right next to Busan which basically means that the entire Korean Peninsula has fallen)

It would still be useful, even if not massively effective - it's mobile, has a big gun, and is small arms proof. More of all that would be nice, but it'll still achieve something
