Perhaps, perhaps not. The Soviets built 100,000! (I just researched that, holy crap!) T54/55 tanks since 1947, two years after the war.
We can debate the intent and strategy of this all you like, but let me propose this: After 1945 Germany was divided and the US kept an enormous Army and Air Force base there and had craptons of military there too, mostly as equipment like our own tanks, but also plenty of troops.
If WW2 had been fought in South America instead of Europe and Mexico got divided, and the Soviets left a big base and massed troops and equipment in Cancun, how do you think this may have affected our military?
I understand why these conditions existed historically, but the lesson of the last 2 generations of humans is that we are all connected now more than ever with labor, economies, and commerce intertwined.
We need to switch from the military to startups.
