General AFV Thread

Recommended Posts

Russia apparently working on a recon variant of the BMP-3.

 

"The R&D work is currently under way and we will soon receive a combat reconnaissance vehicle based on the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle, which will fully meet our requirements," Deputy Chief of the Russian Army’s Main Staff for Reconnaissance Major-General Vladimir Marusin said.

The in-development armored fighting vehicle will have advanced reconnaissance equipment, which will make it different from the BMP-3.

The advanced vehicle is planned to be equipped with radars, rangefinders, thermal imaging sights and unmanned aerial vehicles."

Maybe this would also fit into the German armor topic...

 

Rheinmetall still plans to build the Agilis vehicle in Romania, which was developed in cooperation with the local (AFAIK state-owned) industry. They are expecting a contract worth €234 million.
