Lynx KF41 has been reconfigured from IFV to the command post variant:



Very good com. 

The modularity is very similar to the FFG G5 wich is very interesting.

A few more Eurosatory pics from various websites.










Rheinmetall announced that they have been contracted by an Asian nation to deliver "a few hundred" of their modular Mission Master UGVs. A Mission Master UGV was presented at Eurosatory in the cargo configuration, previously an armed variant and a scout variant were already presented.

Turret is ugly af, which is interesting, because Lance 1.0 was arguably the most aesthetically built medium caliber turret I can think of.


According to someone with experience with the Delco 25mm & Elbit MT-30, the Lance 1.0 is not without its problems. 🤷🏿‍♂️

I wonder if that's the Jagdtiger the Canadians reserved. They were waiting for an American transporter to come and take it away, but mysteriously it never made it to a Canadian museum...



Is it America's fault the Canadians lost a tank? Finders keepers!

I just think it's funny that we had a tank transporter big enough to haul a Jagdtiger and the German's didn't.

I didn't realize the Germans used wheeled transporters at all until looking it up, and even then it doesn't seem they were very prevalent at all. Biggest vehicle on one I saw in my quick search was a Panzer IV bridgelayer.

      Topic to post photo and video of various AFV seen through a thermal camera.
      I know that we won't be able to make any comparisons on the thermal signature of various tank without knowing which camera took the image and that the same areas (tracks, engine, sometimes exhaust) will always be the ones to show up but anyway:
      Just to see them under a different light than usual (pardon the terrible pun^^)

      Not exactly the same concept as the WoT forums or elsewhere, I figured this would be the place to post something unknown so as to get others' help in identifying it. Could be identifying the tank itself, a particular modification, , where the picture might have been taken, a user or unit, etc. I'll go first:

      Obviously this is a Centurion with an 105mm L7, which is what perplexes me. It's not Israeli, as Israel didn't experiment with camouflage on their tanks until sometime in the '80s. And the presence of the 105mm L7 means this isn't during the Suez crisis in 1956 either. So where is it? And is it British, Australian, or some other country using it?
