  1. Arms Room and some Light Vehicles of the KSK featuring: Ruger .357 Magnum .22 Derringer
  2. Where did you get the slides from? Also do you have the slides about the Puma A1 and abaout the MaKaBo?

    StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    On the point of the Puma not being deployable: Yeah heck it isnt. It takes Months to get one back from Maintenance and it breaksdown again the same day you got it back. The turret crashes often randomly sometimes while shooting. The whole thing sometimes freezes and you have to reboot it. The same with the rear hatch not working so you have to pump it shut. The Computer always gives you millions of error messages that you just have to ignore if you want to use the tank. And you always have KMW and Rheinmetall Service on speed dial if something happens. But when it works when you need it too its great but that doesnt happen often. It has potential but going from the Marder which is reliable as heck to the Puma is very frustrating.

    This and its not 30kg its more like 50kg. So heavy you need two guys per block so you dont get long term injuries.

    Would be nice to have NERA instead of ERA because the ERA Blocks need to be under security 24/7 so you always need somebody guarding them. They also need to be taken off for maintenance.

    Polish Armoured Vehicles

    Whats the dead Gepard? Not the Flakpanzer right? Also can you give a time when you can say the name?
  11. This sounds so nice. I really like the drive for lighter equipment. A fully loaded Panzerfaust weighs 15kg. And the Warheads are carried in an extra tube so you just change over the Sights. But you carry the 13kg tube around instead of a lighter warhead. How heavy are the different warheads for the RPG7?
  12. +85? Why? also 50mm and ER TOW so 148 shots and 2 TOW to get to the 150 stowed kills? And dont they think 1-2 30mm shots are enough for 1 kill? are Stowed kills for Tanks or for Infantry targets too?
  13. @2805662 How was the Stryker Dragoon looking maturity wise compared to the Puma? I only saw some driving by at GTA.
  14. @SH_MM Is the reduced Radar profile really that worth it? And yeah it isnt a PL-01 but i would love to see a more realistic end user version but thats just me.

    "Ready Now" haha sure. After the development Hell the Puma went through i would say it would only be ready after the S1 and S2 upgrades and then some. For me the Lynx looks too clean for being ready. Like how do you get ontop of and not slip and break your neck and where do you stow your shit? And i only can imagine the problems they will have with the thing. The Puma already has some mind-boggling bugs. But maybe Rheinmetall did a good job. Who knows. Also what could Raytheon contribute to the thing? Doesnt Raytheon do the M113 on Steroids?

    Land 400 Phase 3: Australian IFV

    As someone that sat in a Puma: This looks comfy as fuck. And man all that free height and leg space. But i bet after you squeeze all the equipment an communications in there it isnt so roomy anymore.

    Competition: Tank Design 2239

    What about the ergonomics of the commander it looks like he is directly behind the gun. Can the shells eject and not hit the commander? What about reloading the gun? Where is the ammo if the commander is directly behind the gun? Also what is the diameter of your Tank shell? Cant you take the 240 buttstock off?

    Why that big cupola? Why not just a small one or multiple small ones with MG mountings?

    Why no Torsion bar? Horstmann for better Stabilisation?

    Feels like 1930s France with some IS-3 and M60 sprinkled on top. Also no Coax?
  23. So it is beginning. Germany will be starting its Pistol Trials sometime this year. -No requirment for 9x19 so the .45 or 10mm memedream can still live on -Its still open if it will need to be Optics ready or not or if it can be optional -LLM also not sure if required -No manual safety because P8 is already mostly carried with the safety of and decocked So every modern Pistol is in the race probably. P30 of the KSK could be also replaced soon. KSK also uses the Glock 17 4.Gen as the P9A1 And another confirmation that the last two companies in the System Sturmgewehr Trials are Haenel and H&K. The AWM/G22 will be upgraded to the G22A2 standard which is basically a G22 in a AX chassis in .300 with a Steiner 5-25x56 Source: ESUT 01.07.18 "Handwaffen der Bundeswehr" by Andre Forkert.
