Soviets/Russians you claim, have been exposed to the harshest of environments, and have mastered it, and therefore the European nations cannot compete. I only have one example for you. Crimean war. Britain and France invaded Russian territory and destroyed army after Russian army in their homeland. Victory after victory was claimed in the name of Britain and France. Russia was humiliated. They were beaten by a superior force which has remained superior to this day, both in terms of quality and equipment.
Your right this doesn't sense. Someone has started an argument concerning nuclear arsenals however this is a tank forum. but despite this being a little off topic my points still stand and i found myself having to take the opportunity to correct some misguided facts/opinions that had been thrown around here. That being, the combined nuclear arsenals of the NATO alliances would remove all trace of Russia from the face of the planet.
i would also edge my bets on Russia being destroyed by a salvo of British warheads long before any Russian ICBM leaves the silo. The British radar stations around the nation based at RAF bases would provide adequate warning of any attack. Mutually assured destruction, just as easily as Britain could be destroyed but Russia as you claim, can just as easily be said of the reverse.
