  1. Elbit's new SPH replacement finally breaks cover. https://www.janes.com/defence-news/news-detail/elbit-systems-progressing-new-sigma-155-mm-artillery-system
  2. The author literally says it's from Israel's Carmel program. Wonder if they're going to use Israeli brains and what not or try to indigenize all of the technologies.
  3. Wonder if any Eitans got delivered.
  4. It was a RFI. https://www.janes.com/defence-news/news-detail/rafael-offers-its-next-gen-combat-vehicle-suite-to-south-korea
  5. https://www.israeldefense.co.il/en/node/46485
  6. Only way I could see it working in SAM mode. It might work like the Starstreak but that would be limited.
  7. Is that a radar or a datalink? If it flies in a flat trajectory don't imagine it will be range of the launcher for too long. Does it have a SAM mode?
  8. https://www.washingtonpost.com/video-games/2020/07/28/new-israeli-tank-features-xbox-controllers-ai-honed-by-starcraft-ii-doom/ IAI is training their AI system on video games
  9. The whole point of using an autoloader is so can reduce the number of crew. I guess that's not a factor if you're just using conscripts.
  10. But you still need the extra crew member for manual operation. The notional K9A2 is supposed to have an autoloader.
  11. The 1% is always the hardest. Have to make sure the vehicle can still fight even if it takes damage and the Koreans have a lot of conscripts.
  12. So when are they just going to buy Namers off the hot line in Ohio?
  13. https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-elbit-wins-31m-israeli-army-iron-fist-deal-1001313908 Iron Fist for the Eitan
  14. Iron Fist is a result of earlier cooperation, don't think they had anything to do with each other by 2015.
  15. It isn't trying to perform exactly the same, if it was that would be stupid. The network and sensors are a lot closer to reality than they were before. In some cases, they are almost commercially available, but. Presumably, now it would be able to plug directly into the ABMS. The APS would be a backup for when the superior sensors didn't identify and kill the target before it got into engagement range. Quick Kill is unworkable and completely fucked. The Trophy/Iron Fist combo APS that is supposedly in the pipeline would probably suffice. Although, it seems like that one is going to be missing for a while because Rafael and IMI had too much infighting and the Israelis didn't really have a requirement for beyond Trophy. If you have to reload the APS, presumably you would have already been mission killed at the very least. What really killed the FCS was IEDs, which is completely near sighted.
  16. FCS isn't too sci-fi today. The problem today is funding and time.
