  1. Borsuk's prototype hull(low quality image) from February 2020. Supposedly, prototype has already started trials in Drawsko proving grounds.
  2. Prototype of Borsuk IFV. https://twitter.com/Militarium/status/1166431775490547717/photo/1
  3. Picture is from czech military magazine(ATM), so it's possible that BAE could offer CV90 in that configuration for Czech Army.
  4. Yes. This is the turret that Qatar has chosen for their VBCIs.
  5. Forgot to post this earlier. Mk4 with MCT-30(v2).
  6. New turret from EOS and Elbit Systems. Brochure
  7. @SH_MM Do you know what changes can we expect in next Leopard 2 upgrade? AMAP ADS, new engine, new ammo?
  8. There has been some changes in the L2PL deal so I'm still dreaming about getting "D" armor package.
  9. @Militarysta Do you know if L2PLs are going to have armor inserts replaced? Is this limited due to weight restriction(and money)?
  10. @Gun Ready 2PL should weigh around 59 tons. Can't go beyond 60t because you need to reinforce the suspension. And this is where it gets expensive. Also armor inserts probably won't be replaced(because of the weight limitation) so sadly overall protection is not going to be that great.
  11. First 3 Leopards 2PL delivered to Bumar Łabędy. Another pic from Tomasz Dmitruk.
  12. Spike LR is much better. Fire & observe mode makes all the difference. Basically when firing Javelin you have to see the target to lock on(that also endangers operator of enemy fire, where in case of Spike you can hide safely behind a hill and engage targets BLoS) which limits the effective range to about 800-1500m(typical LoS in eastern Europe) and after you fire you can't deliberately miss the target so there is a high chance of destroying own vehicles. Can you tell a difference between T-72B3 and PT-91 at a distance of 1-1.5km? Include bad weather conditions which would radically decrease visibility. On the other hand you can fire Spike manually and make sure you will hit enemy vehicle, not yours or redirect missile into more important target you have just detected. You don't have to see the target before you fire and you can make use of the full range of Spike. That's my short take on this. I'm sure that @Militarysta can elaborate more on this.
