    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:

  17. 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 vall

  21. 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

  26. 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

  27. 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,

  28. 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:

  33. 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

  38. Apologies for going back a ways. Also I'm new here, hiya. A minor corrective point: > The F35 used in the test was AF-2, which was using Block 2B software As a flight sciences aircraft, AF-02 doesn't have mission systems and is on a special block of very limited software known internally as 0.5 from which it will never substantially move up. The more relevant numbers would be whatever its Vehicle Systems software was, IIRC in those days it was something like version 30 point something (now they're on version 40+). So I guess you could say it had the 2B vehicle systems software, but

  42. Some artist models on the French vision for the MGCS : Three different versions: Canon which shows a large caliber coax which seem to have en independent elevation (so back to the AMX-30) C² : Command and Control which seem to have a 40mm Missile: Same autocanon as a secondary than the canon version, 6 missiles ready and no RCWS Found on a video from DGA: https://scorpion-future.fr/ Not much change from previous drawings:

  43. Just a few pics of some of the overseas deployment of the K200. Evergreen Unit, East Timor, 1999. About 20 were sent over for local security though due to the situation being more stable than expected they were withdrawn fairly quick. Zaytun Division. These K200s were deployed as apart of the peacekeeping force South Korea sent to Erbil, Iraq, not sure about how many were sent over though.
