    And they produced a batch of Lynx.

    I ask myself if a solution could be to implement a remotely operated T90-MS turret on the T14 chassis. Supressing both crewmen from the turret can save volum, and so save weight. The only problem is to improve the loader number of ammunitions.

    This was made possible with an Indian technology transfer.

    The Swedish AFV Thread: Not Just Strv 103s

    Leclerc MBT and CV-90 like medium tanks solutions can’t be compared. There can be an interest in having a CV-90 based tank but this is an other type of need : - an army still using a M48 fleet can chose such a solution if it doesn’t absolutely want armor ; - The other option is a pressing need for « barrels » ; - the third one is quality of the road infrastructure.

    The Swedish AFV Thread: Not Just Strv 103s

    To add to the @Willy Brandtstatement, the Leclerc MBT production line is closed. It would take around three years to reactivate it. This is why we weren’t able to answer Saoudi interest in Leclerc MBT. But, theoretically, the Leclerc MBT interest makes more sense for Swedish ground than Leopard-2A7.

    They have plenty in stock and it’s a test platform.

    Future of AFVs

    I’m not very fond of remotely operated turret, but the Bacon & Sharoni proposal is still a serious contender. It can be adapted to 130mm ammo.
