    General AFV Thread

    Not realy breaking news but this is visualisation of Sabrah light tanks which were recently ordered by Philipines (their exact configuration may be different). They ordered 18 vehicles on ASCOD 2 chassis and 10 on Pandur II chassis (plus command and recovery vehicles on ASCOD 2 chassis). The main armament is Elbit 105 mm/L52 gun. The contract is to be delivered by Elbit, GDLS and CSG (Excalibur Army). It is likely that another contract will follow because the initial one was cut down from original 114 vehicles as a part of Covid measures.

    New short video from the Czech trials. There isn't anything really interesting in the talk.

  7. I think this is the farthest I've managed to get in a competition (by how many necessary components I've completed). She's up to 44.8 tons, but I know I can get that down... each individual wheel is 540 lbs, which seems high... the tracks are also about 2.5 tons each (dont know how heavy they're suppose to be).

  9. East Oil company report no279. The development of the new MBT is going smoothly. Our design team has finally sent the first images of the prototype currently under construction. The tank has been designated the MBT1 Monolith. The Monolith is intended to be able to take on any existing or prospective threat on the continent and also to act as the basis for a heavy IFV.

  10. 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. When the night falls, was cold and dark in the valley. 1RUR had to withdraw in the darkness. All of a sudden, a US spotter aircraft flew over the valley, drop some illumination flares upon the retreating convoy. Fierce battle broke out when flares fall down, PVA firing from all directions, the cold valley became deadly kill zone. Some PVA soldiers put away their rifles, assaulting with hand grenades, satchel charges and Bangalore torpedoes. They even set up mortars on the hill, laying shells with direct fire. 200 British soldiers and artillerymen were killed or captured in one night. 1RUR's Battalion Commander Tony Blake was believed KIA. Cooperforce was completely knocked out, all 12 tanks were destroyed or captured by light infantry. Leader Ashley Cooper were also killed.

  11. This is FUTURE TEXAS, son. We measure our armour in fractions of 16ths of a mile and like it.

  12. There needs to be a Godwin’s law for this: The longer a company exists, the more likely they are to produce a PL-01 clone as a concept.
