  1. About the Jaguar reconnaissance vehicle. https://twitter.com/DGA/status/1273235297325797379
  2. During this period, the Leclerc MBT was not mature enough. But, French engineers who followed the Swedish tests came to the conclusion they were unfair. Swedish army tried to « destroyed » the tank. When you look at the mobility results, it’s tricky. It’s not possible to argue the Leopard’s got a good mobility.

  5. What is the use for both large boxes in front of the turret ?
  6. It would be too complex. But, I still think there is an opportunity to launch (at least) a new chassis for export market.
  7. Not a doc. A new French blog devoted to tracks and steel is borne. https://blablachars.blogspot.com/?m=1 Articles are in French or in English.
  8. This is maybe the hydrogas suspension wich was demonstrated with the Bradley NG in 2018.
  9. At last : 54 120mm rifled mortars are ordered. http://www.opex360.com/2020/01/24/armee-de-terre-la-commande-de-54-blindes-griffon-dotes-du-mortier-mepac-a-ete-notifiee-par-la-dga/
  10. Does anyone want to get involved ? https://www.business.gov.au/cdic/news-for-defence-industry/land-400-phase-3-australian-industry-capability-roadshow
