  1. 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
  2. I believe that is the wheeled prototype for the Future Combat Systems program, which ended up losing to the tracked variant.
  3. Don't think there's any indication of that other than this dude saying so with no source on twitter.
  4. At about 32 seconds in, you can see the Lynx being shown to the Army has 7 roadwheels per side, rather than 6.
  5. 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/
  6. 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
  7. Clearer image of the TARDEC Abrams replacement that came out some time ago.
  8. 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.
  9. It seems many people are forever stuck in 2012 when it comes to talking about the F-35.
  10. Which requirement do you feel is too difficult? They dropped the airlift requirement from 2 per C-17 to 1.
  11. I'd assume from Argentina being flat broke, or is it something different?
  12. https://www.dsca.mil/major-arms-sales/argentina-stryker-infantry-carrier-vehicles Strykers to Argentina, potentially.
  13. https://www.iai.it/sites/default/files/iai2007.pdf
  14. Seems silly to completely ditch tanks. What happened to the Marine MPF buy?
  15. https://insidedefense.com/insider/jette-says-original-competitors-intend-recompete-omfv 11 competitors have reached out to the Army about the new OMFV.
  16. If MPF counts as new enough. Though neither BAE nor GDLS has shown much of anything new in the ground vehicle world lately, mostly because there's been no necessity. I think BAE's last new showing was this:
  17. Sorry about that. Would be interesting to know what the specific requirement was that made it unattainable.
  18. Not sure if this has been posted here before, but googling around I found the draft RFP: https://imlive.s3.amazonaws.com/Federal Government/ID229292510237748546949630439132667118527/DRAFT_NGCV-OMFV_RFP_(W56HZV-18-R-0174).pdf
  19. I'm not so sure about that. APS is only now starting to get good and there aren't any systems (that I'm aware of at least) that can do KE reliably.
  20. GDLS future tank from a trade show, circa early mid 90's. And the same model in desert paint at AUSA 2009. Possible indicator of what Abrams replacement could be?
  21. Incredibly stupid when there's already a 120mm designed for lighter vehicles that has been built and tested.
  22. https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovcloudapi.net/ndia/2003/gun/mosh.pdf Details about a 40MM supershot round that was being developed for the Bushmaster II as part of the FCS program.
