    At Eurosatory-2018 - Patria AMV XP with Kongsberg's MCT-30 turret and some truly digital "camoulage" - somewhat overlooked during previous days, thanks to new Patria 6x6 standing next to it (photos from twitter) And also Jane's article on this vehicle http://www.janes.com/article/80942/eurosatory-2018-patria-rolls-out-latest-amv-xp
  4. *not sure whether this goes in this thread or should be posted somewhere else* one can see in this video from Eurosatory-2018 (4:24 and later) https://youtu.be/Vx8fiHB9H28?t=264 (which shows an Rafael representative interviewed by DefenseWebTV) poster on Trophy APS which among other vehicles shows this picture of Stryker with ERA kit, slat armor and Samson 30 turret: there is also an article https://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/eurosatory/2018/06/11/rafael-to-demo-lighter-trophy-protection-system-on-bradley-fighting-vehicle/ which mentions this:

    Lynx KF41 some photos (originally posted in twitter): pictures from that pdf: Rheinmetall press-release https://www.rheinmetall-defence.com/en/rheinmetall_defence/public_relations/news/latest_news/index_17408.php https://www.rheinmetall-defence.com/media/editor_media/rm_defence/publicrelations/pressemitteilungen/2018/2018-06-12_Rheinmetall_Eurosatory_Lynx_KF_41_en.pdf and some more pics from twitter: video: some screenshots: .... Question: is it a correct thread for this vehicle? Or i should've been posting this in German vehicles thread like @2805662 did with his photos of this vehicle http://sturgeonshouse.ipbhost.com/topic/11-stug-iii-thread-and-also-other-german-vehicles-i-guess/?page=49&tab=comments#comment-133254 ?

    those two pictures are from this article https://www.idf.il/אתרים/חטיבת-הנחל/האיתן-של-הנחל/ which also has a video on Eitan. Some screenshots from this video: some changes are noticeable comparing to this: parts of the same footage also appeared a month ago in another video, which also has more footage from different angles and from inside the vehicle: screenshots:

    May be they'll show it later Army Recognition's video on that robot-carrying version of Titus

    French flair

    well, there was a 3,5 yr old video from DefenseWebTV, and they explained a thing or two about it's capabilities, and around 1:00 this 3d model shown doing what appears to be an change of ground clearance btw loooking at this photo: (from link to twitter posted by Ramlaen on previous page) there: it seems like that wishbone axle is not parallel to ground, like if it's and adjustable and set in position of shorter-than-normal ground clearance.
  21. Pavlov-and-Pavlov's article about object 279 in Technika i Vooruzhenie 2015-06 does mention some studies of 1955-1958 on the subject of non-metallic filler for composite armor, and it also has this picture of what appears to be an proposition on use of composite armor in frontal part of 279's hull. Apparently it went no further than that, and remained a paper design. (Though maybe i'm misunderstanding what's been said in that article.) In lower part of this image there is a spreadshit on the right, located allmost inside cross-section #4, and it shows - for all 4 cross section variants - numbers for surface, and numbers for weight of 1cm thick slice of given composition. And also it shows which part of this area and weight refers to steel and which part of this weight refers to armor filler. I've divided numbers of given filler weight on given filler area, and got density of about 3.2 kg/cm3, same for compositions 2-4 ... Speaking of heavy tanks, one may remember Chelyabinsk's object 780 of early 70s, which was described in "Morozov's diary" as a 49,8 tonnes vehicle, 9-11 tonnes heavier that Leningrad's 225 and Kharkov's 450.
  22. Concept of 40-ton tank was also mentioned there http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a358002.pdf (proceedings of 1998 Combat Vehicles Conference) on some pages starting from 46th (accoring to a pdf viewer page counter) https://imgur.com/a/IOJcNHT This conncept without a doubt appeared on pages of magazines of that time too, though a lot of those of those are not available on the internet now, like Jane's IDR for example. I mean - this russian article on wartank.narod.ru was taken from Zarubezhnoye Voennoye Obozreniye (Foreign Military Review) magazine, 1998-12. And there were articles in polish magazines like Raport WTO and Wojskowy Przeglad Techniczny i Logistyczny which talked about this this concept or at least printed pictures of similar vehicles https://imgur.com/a/KY3pS0t

    Tank Layout

    photo of this model with open rear door: it's a vehicle based on Kharkovite's tank with compact "suitcase"-shaped Kharkovite engine and two gearboxes T-84 cutaway: T-80UD: Achzarit has passageway above some parts of the transmission, and next to both an upper half of its transversely-mounted engine (which is shorter than V2-derieved diesel, so it leaves some space for lower part of passageway) and cooling system On the other hand it seems like if this Kharkovite BTMP-84 has passageway (judging by what it shown on model's photo above - it's floor panels are entirely horizontal, unlike some of those on Achzarit) located above left part of its engine and one of the gearboxes, and next to a cooling system. Which sould've been redesigned to make it narrower (albeit higher, probably, - but passageway's roof should be somewhat higher anyway), and also they've probably removed that red boxy thing and put it somewhere else
