Strange looking PS3 controller. More like PS1 ?

Still, cool, I would be happy to have one.

Because it's not PS3 controller. It's cheap PC USB controller as a matter of fact. It's made in China and it has nothing to do with the PlayStation brand.

This is cool - but that T72 would destroy it in one shot --- should be effective against ordinary ground troops though.

I doubt this will be used in open battlefields more as they said dense urban warfare probally in closed in streets. Otherwise a T72 just need to overun it by ramming it not even bothering to SHoot it as any light armored vehicle... I commend them but since its the SHAM II what was the SHAM I?
