  1. Lets start a thread about the CV-90. Past, present, futur. Link to the Linström's page about the initial Stridsfordon-90 project : http://www.ointres.se/projekt_strf90.htm An interesting SH-MM post about evolution of CV-90 : And a summary about contenders for the forseen Czech IFV programme : http://below-the-turret-ring.blogspot.pt/2017/08/which-new-ifv-for-czech-army.html?m=1 From a well known blog.
  2. I can't read russian or ukraine language so the range of information is very limited for russian AFVs. I'd like to have information about how fast turrets of soviet IFVs rotate. Especially BMP2, BMP3, BTR-82
  3. Israeli AFVs

    Welcome to Mighty Zuk's place of mental rest and peace of mind. This is my realm. I've decided it would be best to ditch the old Merkava thread for 2 reasons: 1)It does not feature any bunched up information in its main post, and valuable information is scattered across different posts on different pages. 2)Many AFVs that are not related to the Merkava, or related but are not it, appear in that thread with improper representation. There are other AFVs than the Merkava, and it would be better to refer to them in a general way. As time will go by, I will arrange this thread into a sort of information center. I will take up a few first comment spaces to make sure proper amount of information can be stacked up on the front page and for easier access for everyone. [Reserved for future posts - Merkava]
  4. Not bad. Nice BMP upgrade I'd say. http://www.armyrecognition.com/slovak_slovakia_light_armoured_vehicles_technical_data_uk/sakal_ifv_bvp-m2_skcz_armoured_infantry_fighting_vehicle_technical_data_sheet_specifications_pictures_video_12607152.html
  5. General AFV Thread

    I'll start off with a couple Pathe videos:
  6. http://www.janes.com/article/53057/boxer-the-favourite-for-lithuanian-ifv-buy 30mm Cannon and Javelins for armament. Is that the first vehicle mounting the Jav?
  7. http://www.janes.com/article/52476/german-army-receives-first-production-standard-puma-aifv 30mm with airburst capability, and supposedly better mine protection than a Leo 2.
  8. Apparently it's somewhat involved.
  9. Are IFVs A Good Idea?

    There are some who believe that Infantry Fighting Vehicles, such as the CV90 or BMP, are an inherently flawed concept. These people contend that IFVs try to be both a tank and an armored personel carrier, and fail to effectively perform in either role. As a result, were a sustained high-intensity conflict to occur, they would fare poorly. To my uninformed eye, this argument appears to have some merit. However, I am curious to hear to opinions of those more knowledgable than myself (or heck, anyone with an opinion at all).
