Wait till the penny pinchers apply their logic, along these lines:-
1. All future armour to be based on super bainite
2. All future purchases will therefore cost less
3. We can cut the defence budget even further whilst calling it an increase in 'real terms',
I was always led to believe that as soon as we had developed a round to defeat Chobham (APFSDS) we started to sell it to recoup the costs. After all, AIUI we only got CR1 because Shir Iran 2 had been destined for the Shah, but when he was desposed, the deal was cancelled and we had 1200 tanks that were better than we had already.
