They don't give us anything, and certainly don't owe us anything. 

Have some humility. This sense of entitlement will do you no good.

I am not sure if you are real, a bot, someone who is a WUM, or just dim. Please think before you post. I know something about armoured vehicles, but try not to post here unless I have something to contribute. Just in case I look stupid. Perhaps you could do the same?

p1720954_main.jpgWhy idf didnt put a 30mm turret on achzarits ! 

 

Please, go read this thread. And then read it again. And then take a half an hour to think about what you've read. And then, maybe, you can consider posting again.

Exactly how old is this one? Was it part of the recent exercise with the 401st?

 

EDIT: Seems to be at least somewhat new, but the really new variants do not have flat sides, even though they have the same crane.

"relatively"
It's much narrower, compared to what could be expected given Namer's width when measured by tracks -
partly because of those antimine seats and because of whatever is located behind them on this pic:

in the end soldiers seat in wery tight knee-to-knee configuration, although on those two pics its partly because of backpacks they wearing.

different seats + not wearing backpacks inside = much more spacious, look at this Bradley photo:

or T-15 Armata, to that matter:

Actually, Namer has enough space

Without having a definition of what you mean by "enough", I have no idea what that statement means - also I woud guess that requirement of fitting 6'4-6'5 with gear and may be even winter clothes for extreme cold conditions was not in your mind.

And that instragram photo does not even have people sitting iside this vehicle, so it basically shows nothing on that matter.

Enough space to leave the vehicle easy.

      I heard Merkava tanks have  revolving magazine for main gun loading.
      Magazines hold 6 rounds for Merkava I, II,   5 rounds  for Merkava III, 10 rounds for Merkava IV. 
      After emptying the magazine, how is the procedure for filling magazines with stowed rounds?

      The Armored Combat Vehicle Puma started as a privat-venture betwen Krauss-Maffei and Diehl in 1983. The two first prototypes were ready first in spring 1986 with a Kuka 20mm two men turret and second in autumn with a Diehl 120mm mortar turret. 
      ACV-Puma was intented as an export armored vehicle of the 16-28 t class. 
       

       
      By 1983 original concept, it was offered with two engine options (400/600hp) to cope with the level of armor protection asked.
      The running gear was a mixt of both Leopard-1 and 2 components :
      - Leo-1 : road wheels, track support rollers, torsion bars and even the driver's seat ;
      - Leo-2 : track adjuster, cooling system components and sproket hub.
      It was possible to run the engine outside of its compartment. 
       
      In 1988, the concept was improved further :
      - the class range reached 38t ;
      - the engines offer was 440 or 750hp strong ;
      - the chassis was now available in two length (5/6 road wheels) and  hight/low profil hull (20cm).

      The ACV-Puma was a contender at the Norwegian IFV programme from 1991 and the Turkish 1987 relaunched TIFV programme.
      Norway chose CV-90 and Turkey, the AIFV.
      (If anyone have information about how it was a serious contender, I'm interested)
      It was also evaluated by the Swiss army in 1991. I don't know if it took part to the Char de grenadiers 2000 programme. 
       

      In 1983´s concept, the difference betwen the low profil hull and the 20cm higher hight profil hull was obtained by a "box shape vertical raised" rear compartment. With the 1988's design, the front slop is now different to achieve a better ballistic protection. 
       
      When considering documentations of this period, it's important to note the mine/IED protection was not a priority like today. 
       
      I'll post soon a scan showing general layout of the troop compartment. It's a Marder/BMP old fashion one with soldiers facing outside. 
       
      Even if it was not a success at exportation, I think ACV-Puma must be known because of both :
      - the outdated combat beliefs of the 80's (still vigourous today) ;
      - and advanced proposal  such as the differential hull length from the drawing board. 
       
      I have a question :
      Does anyone known if a 6 road wheels chassis was ever built ?
