  1. MARAD claims that Iran was fucking around with GPS and false radio contacts: source: https://www.maritime.dot.gov/content/2019-012-persian-gulf-strait-hormuz-gulf-oman-arabian-sea-red-sea-threats-commercial-vessels
  2. Well obviously somebody forgot to tell the canadians that the leopard had no space to grow. Not Magach7 level but still a grown up cat.
  3. In 2017 a deal was signed to upgrade 68 Leopard 2 A4, 16 Leopard 2 A6 and 20 Leopard 2 A7 to A7V standard. While only the 68 A4 will be fitted with the L/55A1 because their gun must be changed anyways. And now there is an additional contract to upgrade 101 A6 an A6MA2 to a standard "similar"1 to the A7V. Together 205 A7V or "alike", further 32 are mothballed to serve as a basis for future modifications like bridge layers. Any idea what version(s) the remaining 91 are (328 total -104-101-32) ? 1" 101 Kampfpanzert Leopard 2 der Varianten A6M A2 und A6 sollen auf einen ähnlichen Konstruktionsstand wie der der neuesten Version Leopard 2 A7V gebracht werden. Ziel ist eine Anpassung an den Leopard 2 A7V in Bezug auf Bedienung und Logistik. " (BMVg.de). The upgrade aims for an adjustment of the Leopard 2 A7V regarding the handling and logistics - sounds more like a A7V light than a similar standard. The deal for the fist 104 A7V was worth 113 million € and I'm still looking for numbers for the current 101 Vehicles since "Ausschussdrucksache 19(12)383" is not puplicly available how it seems.
  4. I...doubt, thar Hilmes mixed up something in this matter. He did a bit more than "just writing about" the Leopard 2 upgrades.
  5. Some WW.II Field Manuals of the Kriegsmarine. ( alike for Luftwaffe and Heer) Merkbücher über die Munition, Munitionsvorschriften, Zündervorschriften and some Dienstvorschriften dealing with EOD and chemical warfare http://michaelhiske.de II. Weltkrieg => Deuschland
  6. nearly 10lb for a 7VR. But I thinks there is still a penetration gap between those two. [http://roe.ru/eng/catalog/land-forces/strelkovoe-oruzhie/grenade-launchers/pg-7vr/ ]
  7. Some basics: https://www.hensoldt.net/fileadmin/hensoldt/Datenblätter/En/0714_SL_0817_9_GPG_EMES_15_EN_LoRes.pdf
  8. An autoloader in a lighter vehicle with an autoloader and a autocannon on the roof. Sonds like somebody told him about this cool vehicle called MBT-70.
  9. Astoundingly many opinions without supporting facts on the last page of this thread. I could get over to reddit if I would want more if this
  10. I would go on with the nitpicking: " Russian defense company is trying to develop similar to Javelin anti-tank systems". Being nitpicky this would mean replacing it with a shoulder launched F&F with half the Range compared to a 9M133M-2. Probably a Spike ER is more fitting.
  11. This issue includes even more: and: No further talk of the 1A3. Hope this wasn't to much derailing.
  12. Work safety regulations . Strike two after the 41 hour regulation. Edit: Oh but there is also something positive. While work safety regulations are a problem for people above 1,84m, pregnancy is no problem because this issue got some attention during the design phase. Send the the pregnant women to repel the red invaders!
  13. That happens when you are posting at 4 am .
  14. that helped: PM-1 BBQ Flame Tank. [for more pics: http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldwar/Czechoslovakia/pm-1-flame-tank/ ] If I'm right:
