What's all the junk they've added to that Bradley?

 
The telescopic mast hosts the Anti-UAV Defence Systems (AUDS), which is built by a group of UK-based company (including Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems).
 
 
The official name of this Bradley package is apparently Maneuver-Short Range Air Defense or M-SHORAD. It boasts pMHR radars from RADA and an EO/IR sensor, and is also capable of launching either Stingers or Hellfires.

Seeing the Dragoon: Is it possible to operate the gunner's and commander's hatches when the turret is facing forward?

 

 

If I remember correctly, based on feedback from the 2nd Cav they were deleted so that the turret could be moved forward to preserve the sky guard hatches. And the commander is the gunner.

They also swapped the 25mm Bushmaster for a LW30 and that airburst goodness.

The US Army has awarded a contract to a team consisting of SAIC, Lockheed, Moog, GS Engineering, Hodges and Roush to develop the Next Gen Combat Vehicle prototype.

 

It's intended to have a 50mm gun, a crew of two and room for six dismounts.

 

Delivery is expected in September of 2022.

IMI will also present in AUSA this year a 105mm derivative of its 120mm "Hatzav" M339 shell, which was hailed as a flexible but simpler (and much cheaper) munition than the APAM.

Because seriously who has the time to choose between 2 different air burst types?!

 

Looks like 105mm was good speculation.
