  1. Lookin' good. Is that one that's finally been delivered to an active unit? Wonder how long those mudflaps are going to stay though. I can see that going the way of the old retaining rings
  2. Not sure if posted, but here's mock up of Leonardo's SHORAD styrker
  3. Also seems like the 2018 SETC starts tomorrow, anybody got any details on the participates this year? Just from some casual googling it looks like it's going to be Austria, America, UK, France, Sweden, German, Germany, Poland, and Ukraine.
  4. I prefer the Tri color woodland, but a solid olive is nice too, certainly better than desert tan. That tank looks like it's finally the tan sandblasted off too, so the green looks much better. If they did paint over the tan they did a much better job than the some other Abrams I've seen.
  5. For anyone Curious these are the Sullivan Cup results: 1. 2-3 ID 2. 1-1 ID 3. USMC 4. 1-1 CD 5. 3-1 AD 6. 1-3 ID 7. 3-4 ID 8. Australia 9. 2-1 AD 10. 3-1 CD 11. Kuwait 12. NCNG 13. 2-1 ID 14. 2-1 CD 15. 11 ACR Source

  7. I wonder if they dropped the AIM-9s or if this thing can switch up modules. I also like how it kept the .50

    M8 Buford Is Back

    AFAIK the MPF has no airdrop requirement, maybe they decided to upgrade the base armor package? also here's a larger version from BAEs twitter
  9. Good lord that's sexy. I seriously hope the U.S. Army selects it, and I can't think of a good reason they wouldn't. It's the only purposed built light tank. Has been ready for production since the 90s, domestically designed and built, and I'd imagine if the need arose the could drop the XM360E1 in it for addition firepower, even if ammo capacity did take a hit.
  10. Looks like the U.S. just bough a T-84 from Ukraine. http://defence-blog.com/army/us-reaches-deal-ukraine-supply-one-oplot-main-battle-tank.html
  11. Nice, any word on when LPCROWS will make its way to Europe or Korea? I want to see it with a superior woodland aesthetic.

  13. Reading that it I'm surprised they didn't go with the M-SHORAD bradley. Commonality with both the regular bradley and AMPV and would blend better with the ABCTs/

    The Long Road Home

    So National Geographic has a mini series airing right now called The Long Road Home. I'm curious if any else is watching it right now. The show is about black Friday, and the beginning of the siege of sadr city in 2004. It's filmed at Fort Hood with cooperation from the U.S. Army so it features a lot of authentic armor. The first couple of episodes feature Bradleys quite heavily, and starting with episode 4 it looks like Abrams starting getting more screen time. It's pretty cool if you want to see some authentic tanks and vehicles as long as you can stand some cheesiness and army wife shit. Edit: Just realized I posted to the wrong board.
  15. If there has been any feedback my googlefu is to weak to find. I haven't even heard about the Bradley testbed with 30 mm on for about a year or more now. Another thing with the MCT-30 is can it even add an ATGM capability? That's a feature I'd imagine the army wouldn't like to lose unless it absolutely had to. Possibly demolished like that one in Baiji? Back on the topic of artillery though.
  16. I thought that was the case. At anyway rate it's good to see U.S. Artillery is getting some love. The paladin was really starting to get left in the dust. Another thing that's been on my mind is I wonder if any technology from the M-SHORAD Bradley could end up on the later IFV varients. In particular the 30mm cannon and a universal missile system. Both of these would give it a pretty substantial firepower boost and added flexibility.
  17. Thanks for the greetings, I've been lurking for awhile. Figured it was time to make an account.
  18. Is that a typo, or are they going with something other than the XM907? Because I was under the impression the XM907 was a L/52.
