  1. The whole point of using an autoloader is so can reduce the number of crew. I guess that's not a factor if you're just using conscripts.
  2. But you still need the extra crew member for manual operation. The notional K9A2 is supposed to have an autoloader.
  3. The 1% is always the hardest. Have to make sure the vehicle can still fight even if it takes damage and the Koreans have a lot of conscripts.
  4. So when are they just going to buy Namers off the hot line in Ohio?
  5. https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-elbit-wins-31m-israeli-army-iron-fist-deal-1001313908 Iron Fist for the Eitan
  6. Iron Fist is a result of earlier cooperation, don't think they had anything to do with each other by 2015.
  7. It isn't trying to perform exactly the same, if it was that would be stupid. The network and sensors are a lot closer to reality than they were before. In some cases, they are almost commercially available, but. Presumably, now it would be able to plug directly into the ABMS. The APS would be a backup for when the superior sensors didn't identify and kill the target before it got into engagement range. Quick Kill is unworkable and completely fucked. The Trophy/Iron Fist combo APS that is supposedly in the pipeline would probably suffice. Although, it seems like that one is going to be missing for a while because Rafael and IMI had too much infighting and the Israelis didn't really have a requirement for beyond Trophy. If you have to reload the APS, presumably you would have already been mission killed at the very least. What really killed the FCS was IEDs, which is completely near sighted.
  8. FCS isn't too sci-fi today. The problem today is funding and time.
  9. I honestly found the passive armor information offerings to be a lot more interesting. Especially, the part where they have a wheeled IFV (Eitan) going to level 6.
  10. Marketing video from Rafael on their passive and reactive armors.
  11. They put the engine at the front not for protection. It's almost as in they put a door in the back.
