most of them are just cold war era tanks that have been idle for the past 50 years though

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.

I'd still rather there wasn't such a disparity, preferably less Russian tanks haha

For planes, yes, but I wouldn't doubt their numbers for tanks. They've built a lot.

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.

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.
