  1. You may be right. the barrel is short. Looks like a L44.
  2. The interception is made by nets. Others ADS are not less dangerous.
  3. Leopard 2 upgraded with an Altaÿ turret ?
  4. Considering the Leclerc MBT for SA army, it was only talks. Leclerc was too expensive.
  5. I think like you. The only exception for me was the Raytheon Battleguard.
  6. The AS21 is by no means based on the K21. It’s a completely new platform.
  7. Very minor changes. All of was already demonstrated. So, nothing new.
  8. French CAESAR on the way to the US-Army. https://www.forcesoperations.com/nexter-et-le-caesar-6x6-retenus-par-lus-army/ The 6x6 configuration was selected for the tests. And Brutus is still unseen. 20 years ago, CAESAR was already tested by the US artillery. They were very interested.
  9. Where is the rumour ? It’s an old model.
  10. The Sesspir. No more than two of them were built.
  11. 128 Griffon APC were delivered in 2020 as planned. https://www.nexter-group.fr/en/actualites/nos-dernieres-actualites/nexter-thales-et-arquus-succeed-presenting-128-griffons-planned So 220 were delivered.
  12. More details about the Griffon command post. https://defense-update.com/20201126_griffon-epc.html
  13. Yes. This one is devoted to destruction.
  14. Yes. It helps having more firepower. Modern tanks suffer a gap between the main barrel and coax machine gun.
  15. Iron Fist warnings modules are not fitted.
  16. Translation : « The U.S. Army is looking for a 155 mm self-propelled gun to replace the towed howitzers of the forces present in Europe. A Request for Proposal (RFP) was issued last July for evaluations conducted in early 2021 in the United States, a request to which Nexter will respond with versions 6×6 and 8×8 of its CAESAR. BRUTUS vs CAESAR Will CAESAR rewrite history by going to defeat BRUTUS on its own turf? Designed by the Americans AM General and Mandus Group, the latter hoped for a duel with the Archer system produced by the British group BAE Systems.
  17. Nexter will answer the US Army RFP with its CAESAR. https://forcesoperations.com/le-caesar-de-nexter-tente-laventure-americaine/?fbclid=IwAR2yO7KltHtTUdyNZEJxxywA7FJWaDEHxXzBZIxLnvagwvee6kIYy_Vv-rs
  18. So, closer to the Leclerc or Type-90.
  19. I found this on the Solomon’s blog. Photos of the new SuperAV Land from Iveco.
  20. Both sizes are the same. https://i0.wp.com/militaryleak.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/general-dynamics-land-systems-unveils-new-light-tank.jpg?ssl=1 The MPF hull structure is by no means an ASCOD one. Both Griffin 2 and MPF are very different.
