    The latest iteration of Merkava is called Mark 4 Model 400, which has a newer C2 system and enchaned TROPHY (you can tell by the added optical sensor). kinda interesting because although MK 4 had seen many modifications and improvements throughout the years this is IMO the first time that the IDF officially names a new Mark 4 version https://www.idf.il/אתרים/חטיבה-188/2020/טנק-סימן-4-חטיבה-188/

    DGA put out a website on Scorpion, as well as all the subsytems and technology in it and it's replacement (Titan). If you click on one of the title on top of the video it'll make a list of the projects and systems related to it appear. Clicking on one of them will make more informations appear below the main video. https://scorpion-future.fr/ The video can't be embed, and I couldn't find it on youtube but made some screenshot: MAC and VBAE: Some impressions of the MGCS according to the French vision:

  18. 70 years ago, January the 2nd, 1951. To the North of Seoul, in the mountains and hills near Go-yang-tong(高阳洞), British 1RUR dug in and fought against advancing PVA forces. 1RUR got a task force called Cooperforce to support, this is a tank unit from Royal Tank Regiment and Royal Artillery, equipped with Cromwell tanks. When Matthrew Ridgeway assigned the order of withdraw in this afternoon, the US force covering British force's left flank quickly escaped from their sector, leaving the British were completed unawared and uncovered.

  22. A guy in Eastern Bohemia was searching for historical remnants with a metal detector... he found 338 mortar rounds from WW2 burried some 1,5 meters deep underground. The article states it's 82 mm calibre, i.e. Soviet one. There were partizan units operating in these forests at the end of the war. Could be their ammo dump even though that would have to be from the last days of war because normally they used ony small arms and explosives in this area (the most prominent group active in that forest was an intelligence unit of Soviet 1st Ukrainean front lead by major Charitonov enlarged by escaped

  27. Yep, this is a crazy good vehicle! I read about it a while ago in an article, if I remember well, it said only a few were built. These are very very useful vehicles. It has one disadvantage, it needs a trailer to quickly transport it to the site, but this is countered by its speed and maneuverability offroad. SPOT-55 proved its capabilities many times. In my opinion, it is much better to transform old and obsolete tanks to such vehicles than to scrap them. ARVs, and even bridgelayers are also especially useful in civilian roles. A private firm here in hungary also operates some ex

  28. AFAIK the one at Greek trials still had TOGs installed but the CR2E spec at that point was to remove it, it just hadn't been done yet - I think the one on display was later on. The strange CR2E pictured above is for the South African proposal, idk much about it but it appears to be a slightly more austere version compared to full CR2E spec - euro powerpack but standard optics. In any case I believe it lost out to the Leclerc but neither went ahead. Source: Simon Dunstan,

  29. Figured it out. It's a regular turret on a E hull. I didn't notice the different rear and then thought it was a re-painted Omani version as they have different cooling exhausts: I had also forgotten that the version used in Greek trials had a mantle-mounted optic but used the updated periscope: I wonder why it was changed? Previously the regular CR2E was the one being advertised to Greece:

  34. Some historical curiosity, probably not known to you guys. After WW2 Czechoslovak army had a wild mix of tanks of Soviet, German, British, American and own origins. The western machinery didn't have a long service due to a lack of spares after the communist power takeover however some Cromwells ended being rebuilt as electric excavators in mines (with cables instead of batteries) and serving for another decades in this role. To this day some 5-6 such chassis exist owned by various museums or collectors and some of them are being rebuilt back to the tank form (Smržovka muzeum piece at least, th

    The MTU 883 is not at all smaller than the AVDS 1790. The engines are approximately the same length, similar width (though the 883 is square and the AVDS is trapezoidal in section and a tad wider at the top), and with the cooling system on top similar height (though the MTU has a more optimised slope for hiding behind the glacis). You would note, that the engine compartment on the Merk 4 is not notably shorter than the same on the Merk 3. Likewise, the Renk 325 transmission that goes with the 883 is slightly fatter than the Renk 304 which goes with the 1200 HP AVDS 1790, so there's no rea

  39. When You posted this vehicle... do you know guys this thing? It's firefighting tank SPOT-55 based on T-55 chassis and produced by VOP-25 factory (now only VOP) in Czechoslovakia since 1991 (and Czechia after 1993 split). This tank has been in active use in basically every major fire in our country (forest fires, ammo dump accidents, chemical and ammo plant accidents etc.). It's big advantage is that it's optionally manned and can be operated remotely up to 1500 meters from the operator. Unfotunately I don't know how many were built but at least two are also in Saxony, Germany.
