  1. That´s one option. But if K2M is meant for SK service i would expect to see some ERA above the ammo racks as in the current model.
  2. Driver has been relocated to the center of the chassis. I wonder where they put the ammo that is on the right currently.
  3. T-14 at IDEX will be a mock up. But interesting new info: - FCS can do automatic target search and recognition - New (and better) footage of shell ejection.
  4. News from the real south. TAM 2C program sees light at the end of the tunnel. An agreement was reached between the Argentinian Government and Elbit to start the upgrade of 74 TAM to 2C standard.
  5. Any available time frame of when the development of that engine is planned to be finished?
  6. You mean the one on the Ariete? Or the newer meant to replace it as part of the MLU program? If you mean the first, then it most likely will have problems in the Altay since the tank is heavier than the Ariete and the engine is less powerful than the MTU. If you mean the second, with 1500 hp, it is still in development phase and by the time its clear for export, the Turks may have made enough progress with their own engine. Either case the most important aspect is not clear which is the political willingness of Italy to defy EU stance on Turkey´s militarism. And right now Italy is not the m
  7. At this pace, they are going to have the Altay in production in 5 years at best.
  8. Do you have a source stating explicitly that Renk 304 is the transmission used on Merk Mk.2-3? I´m convinced from photo evidence that´s indeed the case but i´ve been unable to find a source proving it unequivocally.
  9. This confirms that the side hull module has explosive contents. It reads "נָפִיץ" ("explosive") there.
  10. Yeah i noticed that too. Wasn't expecting to see the Dorchester getting replaced. Guess that the new armor is going to be called "Port Down armor".
  11. More on the Challenger 3 and Warrior 2. This is from September 28th. https://committees.parliament.uk/writtenevidence/12523/html/?fbclid=IwAR3MXJBHlgabki4BwkB6946JiX_NGFedgjEDuR2oBpJzdDZ5Xm-G3HHlWNM
  12. "Serial production and deliveries of the newest Armata tank to the Russian army will begin in 2021." How many times we've heard that? Is there any reason to believe that next year is for real?
