  1. Israeli AFVs

    The LIC kit. And most important : the under-belly mine protection plate.
  2. General AFV Thread

    This is manual.
  3. To chock the BMP tracks on trailer or train ?
  4. General AFV Thread

    The cost. Sabra upgrade was very expensive. So, leaving the cuppola was seen as interesting. They kept the 12,7 for free.
  5. The Leopard 2 Thread

    Can you use
  6. CV-90, why so much love ?

    You have not to be facing a threat to take it into account. Once more : mine protection comes from TMRP-6 probleme.
  7. General AFV Thread

    Both Olifant Mk-1B and Mk-2 armor packages are similar considering there covering. Heavy armor modules stop at the middle of hatches.
  8. CV-90, why so much love ?

    The title comes from a French forum where the topic devoted to CV90 is called "CV90, pourquoi tant d'amour ?" My purpose is not to bash any AFV. My purpose is to collect efficiently, in a dedicated place, informations about CV90 to help anyone to form his own opinion. This is the best to avoid fanboys attitudes. For me, I was very impressed by the Swedish consistency of the programme.
  9. CV-90, why so much love ?

    The introduction of mine protection was the discovering of the TMRP-6 in Yougoslavia. The very purpose of this seat was to enshure the hull low profil by Hagglunds.
  10. CV-90, why so much love ?

    Was-it a common practice just to take into account 50% percentile ?
  11. CV-90, why so much love ?

    Maybe the very first tracked one could have been the Strf-90.
  12. CV-90, why so much love ?

    I don't have such a data.
  13. CV-90, why so much love ?

    The new roof for Strf-90 is 170mm higher. A rebuilt chassis was made at least 5 years ago. To well consider the eight of troop compartment, you must consider seats design first. Bradley, Namer... are using basic seats. CV-90s, like SPz-Puma, are using close to the floor configuration to achieve a very low profil compartment. So, comparison can't be made trough absolute figures but through momentum. By 1998, the Warrior-2000 rear compartment was 50mm higher than the initial MCV-80 one. The Bradley NG is 178mm, the futur Strf-90 will be 170mm.
  14. CV-90, why so much love ?

    Taller than a Bradley : Bradley NG. Raised roof of a forseen Strf-90C upgrade. Mk-III hull.
