Models S-300 and T-72 seen on a highway in the United States

 On a highway in the American state of Alabama, mock-ups of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system and the T-72 tank were seen. As expected, they will be used to designate the technology of a potential enemy during the exercises of the US Air Force.

Chinese sources note that we are facing an attempt to reproduce the 5P85S launcher of the PS modification based on the MAZ-543M four-axle all-terrain vehicle, produced in the Soviet Union since 1983.

However, the lighted sample has a pixel camouflage typical for some weapons of the People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA).

At the same time, it is known that the air defense forces of the Celestial Empire are armed with more modern Russian-made air defense systems – S-300PMU1, S-300PMU2 and S-400.

The observers were surprised by the unfinished chassis, it is quite possible that it will be re-equipped upon arrival at the site.

It can also be seen that to move around the landfill, the “installation” was hoisted on a special wheeled platform capable of withstanding an increased load.

The model of the tank itself cannot move – it is mounted on a six-wheeled chassis. Interestingly, the organization that made it did not care too much about full compliance with the original.

So, the built-in explosive reactive armor on the “tower” resembles the “Contact-5” of the later versions of the T-72B and T-72B3, but on the “side screens” you can see the mounted “Contact-1”, as on the T-72AV or T-72B sample 1985 year.

Three months ago, an imitation of the PLA ZTZ-99 main battle tank, which is also intended for training purposes, was lit up on one of the highways on a car trawl.
