  1. UK to reassess Ajax programme https://www.janes.com/defence-news/news-detail/29cf9003-fcc5-4c72-af61-e7a41a7aa603 The rumour is that the Spanish built vehicles have shocking quality control (including hull welds) resulting in the Welsh facility having to disassemble, fix, reassemble and then re-validate each unit. Santa Bárbara recently had problems with the Piranha V-based Dragon 8x8 and a Spanish defence magazine says the VCZAP Castor (ASCOD-Pizarro engineering variant) prototype is overweight and delayed. Despite this Desider Magazine reports that the first 2 rebuilt Ares have been accepted for service: Success as AJAX completes acceptance testing https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/889347/June-desider-online.pdf

  6. There's not much info. Bustle: I think it was made mid-90's as a possible upgrade to Challenger 2 and to learn more about autoloaders as the NATO 140mm gun would need one. The carousel type uses a "Cat & mouse" two-piece ammo rammer.
