    Israeli AFVs

    That's pretty much my understanding of the situation. Teledyne was working with Renk by the late 1970's to get a Renk transmission into their "Super M60". So I'm not sure if Teledyne pitched the Renk transmission to the Israelis, or if the Israelis picked the Renk transmission independently.

    Not very, Defence blog is one ukrainian guy writing articles. For majority of his articles it is ok, but Russian-related ones are at times questinable. Last time i heard anything about Pantsir development is that new version is being under work on new Kamaz-assembled chassis, photos of prototype i posted in this thread a year ago IIRC.
