Some random comments on reddit about T-14 "Armata" and T-90A tanks - real size comparison (photo compilation) [1435 x 1600]
- Ultra compact layout is very typical for Soviet tanks.
- I saw some where that Russians had a height restriction of under 5'7 for tankers.
- Because fack comfort, amirite?
- I think I saw something a while back about a British tank that had a tea making station. I wonder what's better, many tanks with uncomfortable crews or fewer tanks whose crews know they get a tea party if they win
- It's not so much about comfort in that sense, but at one point, the crew quarters become so cramped, it gets tougher to operate efficiently. Also, tank where crew does not have to leave the tank to get a hot drink > tanks where the crew has to pop a hatch to get it...
- That is why soviet army had height restriction for tankers.
- Swiss army dude said to us (conscription): Height restriction is 1.80m, if you want to drive tanks and and are taller than that now, you'll be 1.80m then. The hatch door will take care of that. (dunno if it's 1.80 or 1.85m or whatever - also not sure if it's true, dude was an old fart :))
- There is a height limit, but it's 1.90 m. There is also an under limit for some tank functions/jobs. For most it's 1.65m, for some 1.55m and some don't have an under limit.
- I tried to sit in the gunner's seat of a NZLAV (similar to Stryker). I'm 1.82 and it was horrible.
- I'm 1.86 and I used to work as an armament technician for turrets. I struggle to fit into any tank smaller than a MBT.
- Don't they have that everywhere? I know the Netherlands does/did have a maximum height for mechanized infantry and vehicle operators.
- I drove a BMP-2, our tank commander was a basketball player, easily over 190 cm. So not everywhere. Unless the limit is at 2 metres or something.
- Aren't you Hungarian? I think I met you once already in /r/europe , I think.
- I'm Dutch, but the -sz may seem Eastern European.
- Hungary Eastern Europe >:C
- Well yes, but it's really because our rations are boil-in-the-bag food, so this means that they can eat in the tank. In fact all our armoured vehicles must have a boiling vessel so that they can be lived in for up to three days, in case of CBRN threat. Read more comments
