  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.
  12. Don't think there's any indication of that other than this dude saying so with no source on twitter.
  13. At about 32 seconds in, you can see the Lynx being shown to the Army has 7 roadwheels per side, rather than 6.
  14. 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/
  15. 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
  16. Clearer image of the TARDEC Abrams replacement that came out some time ago.
  17. Maybe it has a secondary ammo storage in the rear hull, that replenishes the bustle magazine? It's what they did with the M1 CATTB.
  18. It seems many people are forever stuck in 2012 when it comes to talking about the F-35.
  19. Which requirement do you feel is too difficult? They dropped the airlift requirement from 2 per C-17 to 1.
