Again nothing changes in Russia. They have gone back to shoddy work practices. In WWII the average road life of a brand new T-34 tank was 300 miles before it needed a new or overhauled engine. So the US sent quality control engineers to Russia to help them improve their manufacturing processes. Fifty years of communism later and thirty years of commu-capitalism has led them apparently right back to where they were eighty years ago.

Actually, the effect of the US assistance was minimal. Local pressures everyone quality requirements. And it wasn't just the tanks or the engines.

Voland, Could you clarify that comment? Are you referring to QC engineers on the tanks or are you referring to overall allied assistance to USSR?
