Contoh Aplikasi Tank Pada Perang Vietnam

11 Jan

Menanggapi artikel sebelumnya, penulis mendapat banyak komentar dari beberapa pihak yang terkesan tidak sependapat mengenai keinginan TNI-AD dalam mengakuisisi MBT sebagai salah satu inventaris alutsista mereka. Tanpa basa-basi, penulis hadirkan salah satu contoh mengenai penggunaan tank M-48 Patton yang termasuk salah satu jenis Medium Tank di dunia ketika digunakan pada Perang Vietnam. Vietnam sendiri pun memiliki kontur geografis yang identik dengan Indonesia.
