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

    I...doubt, thar Hilmes mixed up something in this matter. He did a bit more than "just writing about" the Leopard 2 upgrades.

    Unified Naval Documents Thread

    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
  3. 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/ ]

    The Leopard 2 Thread

    Some basics: https://www.hensoldt.net/fileadmin/hensoldt/Datenblätter/En/0714_SL_0817_9_GPG_EMES_15_EN_LoRes.pdf
  5. 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.
  6. The colour code is series, modernized series and modernized ? Sry the translation app sucks when it comes to russian.
  7. 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
  8. 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.

    This issue includes even more: and: No further talk of the 1A3. Hope this wasn't to much derailing.

    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!

    That happens when you are posting at 4 am .

    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:

    A "Jihaded" Jagdpanzer 38(t) with an Pz. 38(t) turret and a BBQ set in the trunk?

    APC/IFV armor in details

    Ah, that makes sense! Sadly a Tankograd issue is the only thing I've here about it and it lacks info in this area. The lid was expected because a ~30mm baseplate would be a bit heavy

    APC/IFV armor in details

    @SH_MM How does the visual impression of the 1A3's frontplate correlate to the 11mm given in the diagram? The outer plate alone looks like ~1cm

    Israeli AFVs

    This seems to be no issue when it comes to ships and submarines since Germany is a lot less export friendly compared to out neighbours

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    I only showed that the two statements aren't mutually exclusive. No statement about the A-10 or F-35 included nor intended from my side. And yes, the ability for supersonic flight might be a plus on the F-35's side .

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    Depends on the intended role. A jet can be to heavy to be a fighter and yet to flimsy for a ground attack role.

    Aerospace and Ordnance discussion/news.

    UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson announced the new, national Combat Air Strategy and unveiled a concept model of a brand-new, next-generation fighter jet at Farnborough International Air Show. Probably related but yet unconfirmed by any officials is the cooperation with SAAB. I always thought Gavins are boxier

    Syrian conflict.

    Any context about the location or the target?

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

    Putting Stingers on a 25t+ vehicle like a Boxer sounds like a cheap excuse to get rid of the topic . IRIS-T SLS could at least close the gap to 9k121s and 9M120s *sigh*

    European Union common defense thread

    For every German who's not allergic to everything connected to defense or god beware weapons the situation is kind of frustrating. There are many things that our current Minister of Defense "Panzer-Ursel" could have done better - the relation between her and the troops could be called shattered. But she did one thing that was unquestionable one of the biggest favour the Bundewehr received since 1991: She made the poor state of all amred services branches public instead of keeping it out of the public view like her predecessors did. The German public developed such a thing like an awareness to the problem and was open to spend money to solve the problem. And Panzer-Ursel got more money. Less than wanted and less than needed in the long term but with the perspective of little increases every year. Then President Trump started with his loud demands for the 2% which culminated in the days before the Nato summit. An guess what we could read in the press last week ? Trump want's it so we shouldn't do it. That's the point where you realize that a Beer is not enough to calm you down. But Donald rescued the day! His "joke" about 4% instead of 2% was just great! Because come on - what would amuse the Poles and the French more than Germanys Wehr-expenditures being only trumped by the US and China? And even our new alt-right movement would have a reason to think/dream big again!

    Israeli AFVs

    The one in Munster doesn't count? Or is it because it's an Mk. I ( the black sign on the lfp reads "Merkava Mk. I" ) which received some of the Mk. II upgrades? FCS and some ITAR parts got removed but it should be able to move on own power as far as I know.

    A brilliant example that shows that the east was totally on par with the west when it came to fucked up cooperations.

    Britons are in trouble

    @Mighty_ZukAre you refering to the half-generation steps? Because this avoids exactly the situation that you have to live from hand to mouth via upgrade programms. Upgrade the old ones while the successor is already in the pipeline. The series would be smaller today but since the tanks are more expansive the monetary volume would be comparable. Admittedly it can only work if some countries decide to buy their new tanks instead of brewing their own thing or buy from Uncle Sam. I hope KNDS is the right tool to avoid a further AMX-30/ Leo 1 outcome.
