  1. Cross-section of the Leopard 2(A0-A4) with uncensored hull front geometry:
  2. Test Line-Of-Sight Thickness Diagram overlay at +10 degrees of the Leclerc S1 model: The overlay diagram is just a test. Considerable more fine tweaking has to go into it before i can release the rest. The MATLAB program measures the LOS thickness in 10 mm intervals over any part of the crew compartment using pixelated slices of the vehicles in a .png picture format. I have tested it several times with smaller inputs and it seems to work, although it has to process for 30+ minutes for each aspect. Note that this is not the vulnerability diagram. As one can see the left front hull LOS is not visible because it went below the value color threshold. Other color coding schemes are available, which i might use instead of this "hot" color scheme. The values vary from a couple of centimeters to a couple of meters. The tracks and the main gun are the primary contributor for these large differences. The program and/or the slice diagram could be adjusted to get rid of the main gun and track assembly so the program generates a more reasonable output. Either way, more fine tuning and work is required to get the diagrams to a presentable level.
  3. MVEE Cross Section of the Challenger 1 tank:
  4. The joint military excercise would be there to deter US aggression, foster international interoperability and promote peace and regional stability.
  5. The 19 tons are metric tons. When i present data I always use SI/metric units.
  6. Rolf Hilmes gives a turret mass of around 19000 kg for the original M1 tank.
  7. I do not have the full report. I have contacted a person that might have more "direct" information (turret data) on it. If he responds I will post it here. Also, i have no idea what the product improvement program (PIP) is about concerning this document.
  8. duh , my mistake , had glanced over it too quickly.
  9. Not sure if these has been seen before but can anyone verify this:
  10. So the EMES 15 itself weighs 1789 kg, almost 2 metric tons !???
  11. As far as i know the Leclerc mantlet assembly is at least partially "multilayered". According to Froggy the block around the COAX is composite. The mantlet itself might also be composite/multilayered.
