  1. Unfortunately, the Stryker is the platform in consideration. Would be a VERY bad idea... Not just the chassis. I think the whole IM-SHORAD is a mess. Jack of all trades, master of none. Almost if the designers would have no idea about the real purpose of the system, just different weapons cobbled together. Well, this is one of the disadvantages of NATO membership. Russia has the exact AA system we need, the Pantsir, and we arent allowed to buy it.

  2. Mini-competition suggestion: fix-a-tank Contestants will be given an existing, flawed AFV design (or a selection to choose from), as well as a country and a time period. They will then be asked to propose modifications, reworks, conversions or fixes to improve the design or modify it for a specific task. The submission should include one or more drawings or blueprints, a description of the modified vehicle and a description of how the modifications would be accomplished.

    I like this idea. We could progress this into series of competitions with "upgrade mid WW2 AFVs" and same with later WW2 tanks like Panthers and such.

    So I'm planning to kill this thing in the crib and have the first iteration be: "You're an Italian company in WW2 and, since the Germans just dumped a bunch of captured French tanks and equipment on Il Duce and all the bigger (by Italian standards anyway) manufacturers are busy, you get picked to fix the foreign stuff up for use in the field. Pick one of the tanks provided and fix it to suck less, bearing in mind that you have limited production capacity and cannot propose major new components without explaining where they'll come from. Also this is 1943, so your tanks

  6. This seems to be the prototype of the system that would go on to become Goalkeeper and find use in the Dutch navy. I don't have much of anything else beyond that, but I suppose some digging into the history of Goalkeeper could give you more.

  8. Top to bottom: F-4 Phantom, F-5 CODPIECE/Tiger, F-12 Archangel, F-6 Hellcat, F-5G Tigershark, F-7 Shinden The F-8 Bearcat is not shown, but it's basically a slightly shortened Archangel for a different max COAL.

  9. TEM is a Russian project of Transport module with nuclear reactor as source of energy for 4 ion engines, planned to be used as a space towing vehicle. Reactor is located on a tip of this space vehicle, solar panels-looking parts in the middle are cooling system and in the end there is engine module. And looks like this is not just project that exist in CGI, recent photos are showing parts of the TEM being assembled. Although it is likely that this is not a vehicle that will fly to space, but a testing rig. TEM's "spine"

    Kind of sad to see the country that invented the modern tank squander away its tank fleet.
