    Turret uses regenerative braking. Friction caused by the turret slowing down gets converted into electricity that then recharges a battery. Formula 1 cars use something similar - KERS/ERS.

    From the General AFV thread: There's only one thickness type of base armour for production models. Any others are a result of test armour or optical illusions. The MCO armour seems to use the base config. I doubt Permali make all the armour. The contract is only for £15 million, which seems too little for nearly 600 vehicles. In an older blog post you mention that RUAG provided some armour but I can't find any other reference to this: https://below-the-turret-ring.blogspot.com/2017/08/which-new-ifv-for-czech-army.html I wouldn't focus too much on the known armour configs anyway. Whenever the Army sends vehicles into a hostile environment they send out a Urgent Operational Requirement and buy a bunch of armour to bolt on (like Chobham Warrior). I'm expecting to see armour modules on the front glacis one day.

    David Brown offered a 1500hp upgrade of the power pack in the early 2000's. Option is listed on TN54 website: https://dbsantasalo.com/industries/defence/land-defence/tn54-tracked-vehicle-transmission/ The CV-12 engine was used in generators rated at 1500hp. The cooling would probably need to be overhauled.
