This static tank has been shown a dozen times on top of trucks in a number of years.
The question being,is this so called tank just another mockup?
I would say if we don't see this tank moving and performing stunts,then it is a mockup tank used for propaganda reasons.

Seen it. But it only proves that they have a tank that is disguised and can fire.
When I mean "a tank" it means only one workable tank which could be made with plain steel and parts off other tanks like T72,M60.
Until they show inside the factory that they are producing these things in numbers and also show real demonstrations of the capability of this tank,I won't believe a single thing what they say.
