  1. https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2021/07/27/2269516/0/en/United-States-Army-Contracting-Command-Detroit-Arsenal-has-awarded-Point-Blank-Enterprises-Inc-Contract-for-Concept-Design-for-the-U-S-Army-s-Optionally-Manned-Fighting-Vehicle-OMF.html Looks remarkably similar to the Israeli Carmel project.
  2. Came across a document on the LV100 engine which has a tidbit on the ASM program: https://booksc.eu/book/70724131/75edc1 Apparently, Teledyne ended up winning and producing a vehicle, though the image quality isn't great. Is there any more info/photographs of this thing out there?
  3. @DogDodger According to Infodefensa, they received a pair of M32s in 1945 as Lend-lease aid. https://www.infodefensa.com/latam/2016/07/19/opinion-venezuela-actualizacion-parque-medios-blindados.php
  4. @Ramlaen 6 proposals now. https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2021/04/26/2216925/0/en/Point-Blank-Enterprises-Company-Submits-Proposal-for-the-Concept-Design-of-the-Optionally-Manned-Fighting-Vehicle-for-the-U-S-Army.html
  5. How so? They're developing a unique variant of the Lynx and involving some of the biggest defense contractors around for their bid.
  6. It appears to be the updated Bradley chassis they showed off in 2016, judging by the position of the headlights. Still hard to see this competing with the Lynx or another clean-sheet design.
  7. BAE's OMFV bid. https://twitter.com/BAESystemsInc/status/1382702789034438666
  8. It wasn't cancelled, in fact the initial digital designs are due this Friday.
  9. Comparison of ammunition when fired by the L44 & L55 guns: https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovcloudapi.net/ndia/2008/gun_missile/6526Huls.pdf
  10. The Lynx will, if selected by the Army, have an electric drive from Allison. https://www.allisontransmission.com/company/news-article/!details/2021/02/16/allison-transmission-partners-with-american-rheinmetall-vehicles-to-produce-the-propulsion-system-for-lynx-omfv-offering
  11. I believe that is the wheeled prototype for the Future Combat Systems program, which ended up losing to the tracked variant.
