    First images of the Stunner 6th generation missile in its AAM version (evolved from SAM). In 2nd photo, the Stunner is on the right wing (left side from our perspective).
    The range of the AAM is not yet known, but the specifications for the Stunner in its basic (SAM) variant are:
    250km range. 
    Mach 7.5 (terminal stage?).
    Hit-to-kill.
    Dual seeker (Dual electro-optical and AESA).

    IMI debuts C-Lynx system which is a light version of the truck-based Lynx.
    The C-Lynx can mount 8 tubes of 122mm Accular rockets, which are downsized variants of the 160mm Accular designed for the Lynx. 
    Dubbed Accular 12, they maintain a slightly lower range of 35km and an accuracy of 10m CEP, as they are GPS guided.
    Primary role for the C-Lynx would be pocket artillery for airborne special forces who at the moment can only transport various mortars via air-drops or sling.

    Quite a lot of information is being released lately about numerous Israeli AFV projects, mainly the Merkava. Instead of cluttering this thread like I did in AW forums, I've decided to just link the article here:

    Let's just forget what Spicer said, okay? When you're subject to so much stress because of so many things happening simultaneously, it's inevitable to say some things you'll regret. Just take note and move on.

    Eitan APC in mobility trials both in the Negev and Golan (South and North respectively). Still waiting on them to have a turret and APS developed and ready for the Eitan, but given the time schedule they still got plenty of time (til 2020).

    Not a Merkava but worth sharing.
     
    This Magach seems to employ Thai armor techniques as the Blazer became outdated.

    Elbit has unveiled the TORC30 turret made for the Guarani by its subsidiary company Ares. The turret uses an MK30-2/ABM gun. 
    Seems that this gun has stability issues which warrant a cage. Where exactly do they come from? Longer barrel? Higher pressure?

    I was informed over another forum by a person highly connected to the military who usually gets first hand information. I believe it didn't get any media coverage.

    So, it has been finally phased out of service. Do you have any official sources about this event ?
