Isn't that a russian hovercraft "ZUBR"?
BTW greek army has a mix of western and russian wepaons. You take the best from both sides.
It is very interesting to see US Hummer equipped with russian Kornet AT missiles.

yes it is, the chinese are looking at getting some too. They were bought so greece can quickly re-take contested islands in the event for war, especailly before any occupation becomes too dug in.

No, you won't Wink

Kali thiteia paidia: Patrine, Brainstorm, Silvershield. I'll miss you on the forum. How long is the Army service now? 18 months? I'm nearing 40 but haven't done my service yet. I'm planning on moving back home within the next 5-7  years  (I want to get my Master's first) and I'm actually looking forward to serving the short term (6 or 8 monts for re-patriated diaspora, I think?), instead of "buying" it off as is allowed by law.  I will choose service over any other option, even if I'm 50! This is a sharp change from my teenage years growing up in Athens when a lot of people where looking for "trelloxarto' in order to be exempt. But things are different now and the military has modernized both its equipment and its thinking. My patriotism (not nationalism) now is a conscious choice, rather than a task imposed from above. I'm proud of you guys, best wishes, kaloi polites soon!

I feel honoured that you remembered me.
 
I am a university student, and I moved to another city. (I was also last year, but I hadn't moved. I was going to the university only when neccessary with the train, and came back the same day). I try to keep the costs low, so i don't have a telephone line in my house = no internet. Occasionally i go to internet cafes and visit allempires.
 
I was thinking of wireless connection, but this service would not be available in Veroia (my new city) until 2007. That means that I'll start looking for it from now on.

Is Greece still using the Eurofighter?  It's a decent fighter.

The Zubr has 2 stabilized multiple rocket launchers, an air defence missile system, 2 x 30mm high-velocity guns that can target aircraft, incoming missiles, sea & coastal targets.
 
 
 
 
In comparison, the American LCAC (below) is a joke; no weapons, cargo exposed to enemy fire, & almost inexistent armor.

this is a big question, it is superior to whatever is in the region at this point in time, but very expensive. Greece wanted around 70 (with more later on), canceled and topped up their Blk52+ numbers instead. They are planning about getting a 4th gen fighter later on though. So maybe we can see a order in the next 5 years, given they have the dollars ready. From what i have read it should out fight a JSF (bomb truck) and hold a flanker.
