  1. @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
  2. How so? They're developing a unique variant of the Lynx and involving some of the biggest defense contractors around for their bid.
  3. 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.
  4. BAE's OMFV bid. https://twitter.com/BAESystemsInc/status/1382702789034438666
  5. It wasn't cancelled, in fact the initial digital designs are due this Friday.
  6. Comparison of ammunition when fired by the L44 & L55 guns: https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovcloudapi.net/ndia/2008/gun_missile/6526Huls.pdf
  7. 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
  8. I believe that is the wheeled prototype for the Future Combat Systems program, which ended up losing to the tracked variant.
  9. Don't think there's any indication of that other than this dude saying so with no source on twitter.
  10. At about 32 seconds in, you can see the Lynx being shown to the Army has 7 roadwheels per side, rather than 6.
  11. 2 Leopard 2A4s (One of which came in first) and 2 2A6 from Greece, along with the Abrams. https://veteranos.gr/protefse-o-oulamos-tis-chchi-ttht-ston-diagonismo-armaton-tank-challenge-2020/
  12. Something similar to the SETC, but with Greece only. The US unit took 2nd place. https://www.defence-point.gr/news/oriaka-alla-mprosta-apo-ton-us-army-ellinikos-oylamos-armaton-tis-211-ema-foto
  13. Clearer image of the TARDEC Abrams replacement that came out some time ago.
