  1. @SH_MM could you please tell where this photo has been coming from? The third from left is showing the DM13 APDS 105 mm x 617, am I right?
  2. Now industry as an ARGE (KMW, Nexter, Rheinmetall) signed the contract with BAAINBw today, see https://www.bmvg.de/en/news/contract-concluded-future-decisive-ground-combat-system-258470
  3. ... and why are both hatches closed? This photo is definitely a fake and may be a good promotion for Russian internal purposes. Why should this prototype be sent to Syria in urban terrain? IMO the risk to fail or be knocked out would be pretty to high and a huge disgrace.
  4. Do you think that this is reality or a fake in best photoshop quality? BTW pretty nice front girl! Can't believe she would have been in Syria more that she is posing in a Moscow film studio.5
  5. Maybe you are right but at some time he will betray himself...
  6. This in the simulation I performed for this round. https://photos.app.goo.gl/FtyBUqT3BjGE8drXA It is a pity that I stopped it too early!
  7. You are right, the guys being engineers with Leopard 2 first development at DEG (Deutsche Entwicklungsgesellschaft) are too old to type in forums or are even dead. But some guys which worked with the development of the improved Leopard 2 A5 armour are old (more than 60) but still agile in some protection areas.
  8. In my opinion @SH_MM was never a KMW employee because he is a Deisenroth and Rheinmetall fan and he believes that KMW has no protection development knowledge. For me he is an old fool telling old stories with little actual background. Guess he is a pensioned BWB or BMVg clerk, more than 70 years old and playing the "protection knowledge" supervisor for this community. Sorry for this rigorous statement!
  9. Question: do you know the meaning of the purple and red rings?
  10. Does anybody have a sectional drawing of the DM63, 105 mm x 617?
  11. So it seems that you got an invitation and had been there!
  12. I seems that you are the best IBD, now Rheinmetall supporter of this blog and unable to accept the reality that KMW is the prime of Leopard and Rheinmetalls only suppliers.
  13. At the 40 year anniversary of Leopard 2 at KMW in Munich it had been announced that the German Army Leopard 2 A7 will get TROPHY from RAFAEL as an additional active protection system. The decision was made against the Rheinmetall ADS.
  14. The program name is SPEED and is a multi-material Eulerian / Lagrangian hydrocode with explicit solver technique.
  15. And here the temperature distribution within the same simulation https://photos.app.goo.gl/8Mtzn8cPLL5xbBCn7 much more meaningful information
  16. As promised mid August to @BkktMkkt here my simulation of 3BM60 @ 1600 m/s versus 600 mm RHA semi-infinite stack https://photos.app.goo.gl/FtyBUqT3BjGE8drXA erosion of rod only
  17. As I stated yesterday the schematic shows precisely the DM33 120 mm x 570. No doubt!!!
  18. This sketch shows indeed the DM33 and is extracted from the German Army ammunition identification sheet (Munitionsmerkblatt 1315-9213-3) which by the way is still classified "restricted - FOUO" (VS-NfD)
  19. Comprehensive answer @Militarysta! Giving a credible picture what's going on in Polish MoD. Do they really have a chance to get 2A6 from Finland or Portugal and are they able to pay for?
  20. First I thank @SH_MM for tracing MGCS. In may opinion the Polish are welcome to the program but not in this stage. In the beginning of the technology demonstrator study phase Polish industry would not be required at all. They want to make quick business. But may be that the research establishment WITU would be welcome to participate with their technology ideas. @Militarysta what is your opinion to this?
