    General Naval Warfare News/Technology thread.

    Irving Shipbuilding and Public Services and Procurement Canada have announced that BAE-Lockheed Martin is the industry team which scored the highest with their bid to provide the 15 new warships for the Royal Canadian Navy. The consortium is the “preferred bidder” according to the federal government, for the Canadian Surface Combatant program. Its design is the Type 26. That selection will now set off negotiations which in turn will – if all is successful – produce a contract. The entire project is worth $60 billion, with an estimated 60 per cent for the actual ship.

  5. @SH_MM I presume they moved around the insides because there is a second hatch where the winch used to be.

    Polish Armoured Vehicles

    Can you link some of those sources for my reading pleasure?
  9. The US Army's new 6.8mm projectile is 135 grain. Sig's .338 Norma cases are polymer and steel.
  10. The US Army seems to be happy with both the upcoming TOW-ER and Javelin-G missiles.
  11. The US Army will continue using and upgrading TOW for the forseeable future. The TOW-ER is probably the Army finally going for the 'Launch Boost Sustain' upgrade that doubles TOW's range.
  12. +85 for urban (megacity) and limited SHORAD.

  14. Looks like the autoloader has been attached as a turret bustle.
  15. It's also worth noting that on November 6, 2012 the DOW was at 13,245.
