  1. What is the black cylindrical device to the right of the turret?

    It should be Commander's Primary Sight, corresponding to GPS(Gunner's Primary Sight)

    StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    Excuse me, just out of curiosity, where can find these original reports?
  6. It's not GL-5, “Raptor” just a corporate project from Nanjing "Hercules" Defense Company, which is a new private company built recently(in this year. Of course, also it may be an individual company from a state-owned enterprise), while GL-5 came from NORICON. "Raptor" just a joke as for me, its performance absolutely do not meet PLA's requirements.
  7. Modified MBT-2000(many details very closed to the VT-4 mod.2012,but with 6TD-2 engine) and BK1871(the initial prototype of Type-90 II/MBT-2000)appear in a last year documentary video.【央视纪录片】军工记忆-链接世界 CCTV9 Modified MBT-2000↑ The BK 1871 on the left, note its very sloping UFP , and side by side is the MBT-2000 FP-1, FP means "Formal Prototype", which was designed a new hull nose structure. More pics about BK1871: There are also another interesting details of MBT-2000 )

    In short: The text in PDF says that the structure of the special armor is unknown, and only the hull base armor layout and the performance of some modules are known. Because Merkava's special armor is modular design, maybe it was presumed that the LFP also can be fitted with additional armor. No idea about those illustrations' original source, It may be the author's record during his visit to Israel.

    Yes, it is a useful course book and very easy to be found in Chinese Internet, however its hardcover is very rare now. Link:https://pan.baidu.com/s/18QXkATK6JEAH6Sy4RT27SA Code:yde9

    But its angle looks very strange.
