  1. If MPF counts as new enough. Though neither BAE nor GDLS has shown much of anything new in the ground vehicle world lately, mostly because there's been no necessity. I think BAE's last new showing was this:
  2. Sorry about that. Would be interesting to know what the specific requirement was that made it unattainable.
  3. Not sure if this has been posted here before, but googling around I found the draft RFP: https://imlive.s3.amazonaws.com/Federal Government/ID229292510237748546949630439132667118527/DRAFT_NGCV-OMFV_RFP_(W56HZV-18-R-0174).pdf
  4. A new MICV for Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force. Appears very similar to the Type 89.
  5. I'm not so sure about that. APS is only now starting to get good and there aren't any systems (that I'm aware of at least) that can do KE reliably.
  6. GDLS future tank from a trade show, circa early mid 90's. And the same model in desert paint at AUSA 2009. Possible indicator of what Abrams replacement could be?
  7. Incredibly stupid when there's already a 120mm designed for lighter vehicles that has been built and tested.
  8. https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovcloudapi.net/ndia/2003/gun/mosh.pdf Details about a 40MM supershot round that was being developed for the Bushmaster II as part of the FCS program.
  9. https://www.janes.com/article/93094/croatia-to-receive-m2a2-ods-bradley-ifvs-from-us Seems the earlier article was somewhat accurate.
  10. Japan's Self-Defense Force has selected a new rifle, the Howa 556. It won over the SCAR-L and H&K416. http://www.jwing.net/news/19766
  11. Some concepts for tanks armed with the 152mm cannon, published in March 1959. All of them had separated ammunition stored in the bustle and the light tank concept used a turbine. https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/501680.pdf
