Lots of old T34s still floating around?

The Russians don't maintain any T-34s except for parades - the huge number is made up of huge numbers of stored T-55s, T-62s and T-72s. They've actually been scrapping their old T-64s and T-80s so the total number might have dropped by a few thousand in the last couple of years.

Europe isn't liking the look of that Russian tank superiority

As long as Trump doesn't pull the US out of NATO, Russia's tanks could easily be destroyed by American and EU aircraft and other tactical weapons systems. Even twenty thousand of them.

Yes, but only in the context of all-out warfare. Tanks can stay perfectly well hidden from air attacks as long as they don't move. It's only when they come out in combat that they can be destroyed from the air.

Apparently we're not counting giant Ford Expeditions and Hummer H3s as tanks—maybe they're just Urban Assault Vehicles.

Not sure why, but Taiwan strikes me as really strange. Tanks don't strike me as defensive materiel, and their options to invade seem... limited.

rumors of china invading by 2020 and with tensions that have been going between the two for decades and much US support operating in the area can be one reason of stockpiling...and tanks arent meant to defend, pretty easy targets in a defensive position but they are great for offensive purposes against an invading forces ground troops

The Taiwanese tank count includes a lot of semi-static M48s that are only serving as bunkers.

The little blurb that accompanies the front page feature for this quiz today said "Strictly for defensive purposes, naturally." In the case of Taiwan, that statement is accurate.

Important to remember when taking this quiz that tanks are more useful in deserts than they are in jungles.

Good quiz. Took me a moment to realise you need to focus on regional or smaller powers that have unpleasant relations with their neighbours.
