  1. Found a few higher resolution photographs from the recent North Korean military parade. We didn't have a topic for BEST KOREAN armored fighting vehicles, so here it is. New main battle tank, Abrams-Armata clone based on Ch'ŏnma turret design (welded, box-shaped turret) and Sŏn'gun hull design (i.e. centerline driver's position). The bolts of the armor on the hull front is finally visible given the increased resolution. It might not be ERA given the lack of lines inbetween. Maybe is a NERA module akin to the MEXAS hull add-on armor for the Leopard 2A5? Other details incl

  7. Much better pics of North Korean SPG. Laser warning receivers, smoke grenades, possibly a radar over gun barrel (like on PLZ-05 SPG), double AGS on top. On the left i guess we can see long vertical slit for direct optical sight, while on the right a camera is mounted on turret roof edge. Cannon's recoil system is mounted assymetrically, 3 cylinders are visible near gun mantlet. Chassis is reversed tank chassis with engine deck in the front. Circle thingy in the middle of LFP is cooling fan access hatch. Grills are sort-of visible on UFP, indicating air intakes.

    About 20 years ago I was sent photos, out of the blue, of Merkavas with the experimental Purple Thunder active defence system and an older, bulkier set up which I have never found out the name. I tore the photos into very small pieces and never mentioned them in any of my articles. Now, it seems, Purple Thunder has been declassified

  11. The class Rubis SSN Perle which recently suffered a fire during it's maintenance will be repaired. http://www.opex360.com/2020/10/22/gravement-endommage-par-un-incendie-le-sous-marin-nucleaire-dattaque-perle-va-etre-repare/ It was initially feared that the fire, which lasted for 14h, would have damaged the hull irrevocably, rendering the submarine unable to dive safely. Fortunately all the inboard equipment had been offloaded at this point so they weren't damaged. In practice the bow of the Perle will be cut-off and replaced by the one of the Saphir (of

  13. Granted there is no need at the moment, but I think that those 100 missiles represent about 1/5th of the stock which is significant given our general propension to have barely enough ammo in stock for limited engagement times. If I remember correctly the initial intervention in Libya, almost emptied our ammunition stock and it took two years to bring them back to pre war levels.

  16. Air exhaust is located on both sides, but engine exhaust is indeed located on the same side of the hull as driver's position. They should have tried to put that on other side for better comfort of driver when hatch is open. Also, some changes are visible between 2018 vehicles and 2020. MANPADS are gone, some sort of sight was mounted on roof edge on the right of the gun and possibly a radar mounted on new vehicle above cannon.

    Official literature lists only one. In a H-Drive system I believe that a differential-like component for an individual wheel would be classified as a (limiter/reducer?) gearbox.

  19. I believe that is the wheeled prototype for the Future Combat Systems program, which ended up losing to the tracked variant.

  21. Offisersbladet claims that the US Army is consdiering the K9 Thunder for their forces in South Korea. I couldn't find any other source confirming this, so it seems dubious, but this is also the same journal that revealed that Germany had decided to acquire Trophy before that was made official too...

  27. I am also confused by the high amount of steel along the line of sight. Assuming the bulging plates are also made of steel (rather than some type of light metal alloy such as aluminium), that's 450 mm steel at the turret front cheeks (I am assuming that the center portion does not feature Beulblech add-ons, given that they aren't shown in the blueprints). That is valid for the minimum LOS thickness of the turret front, i.e. at an angle of 35°. The LOS from the front is ~22 per cent larger, which would lead to more than 540 mm steel along the LOS - even if the armor was made of pure RHA wi
