  1. The variant of the Abrams for Taiwan, Previously known as the M1A2X, is now the M1A2T: https://www.dsca.mil/major-arms-sales/taipei-economic-and-cultural-representative-office-united-states-tecro-m1a2t-abrams
  2. Any reason that the Borsuk IFV wasn't considered for this role? Having the tank destroyer and IFV on the same basic platform seems like the best idea.
  3. I think they need to get rid of the PT-91 and T-72M1s before reserving any of their Leopards.
  4. Greece is (supposedly) selling off some of their Leopard 2A4s and Cyprus is interested: https://defence-point.com/2019/03/05/cyprus-courts-greek-leopard-1a4s/
  5. https://www.iss.europa.eu/sites/default/files/EUISSFiles/occ023.pdf
  6. BAE is out of NGCV: https://www.defensenews.com/land/2019/06/10/major-combat-vehicle-player-wont-participate-in-us-armys-optionally-manned-fighting-vehicle-competition/ Not very surprising, the CV-90 wasn't a strong bid compared to the other players.
  7. If only we had a best in class system that was already designed and mostly ready for production
  8. The picture is from a company called Modeled horizons. They do a lot of work for defense contractors, especially BAE Systems. On their site, they refer to it as "CAT" but I couldn't find any more info than that.
  9. Some sort of SHORAD(?) variant on the XM1200 FCS chassis. Any more info would be appreciated
  10. US is listed as a potential export partner. Looks like the AS-21 is competing for NGCV then?
  11. Australia has revived their Self-Propelled Artillery program: https://www.defenceconnect.com.au/land-amphibious/4041-following-the-leader-govt-announces-local-sph-build-labor-agrees?utm_source=DefenceConnect&utm_campaign=15_05_19&utm_medium=email&utm_content=1 Favorite seems to be the K-9, but maybe recent wins for Rheinmetall could give the PZH-2000 a chance?
  12. Thailand is buying Strykers: https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/security/1676940/army-seals-deal-to-buy-us-armour
  13. I think it's Textron doing the V-280, Boeing is offering the SB-1.
  14. UK is considering a new SPG: https://www.janes.com/article/87623/uk-releases-rfi-for-new-self-propelled-howitzer' Boxer with Donar turret, maybe?
  15. Personally I don't think they'd be up for another rodeo. They lost big with MPF and ACV, and the Amtrac upgrade got canned before it begun. Maybe Textron? They've got the facilities to build armored vehicles, but it would be a stretch.
  16. Puma would be a good fit for OMFV but I'm not sure who they'd partner with to make it acceptable to the army.
  17. http://www.ecsbdefesa.com.br/defesa/fts/Projetos.pdf Interesting document about armored vehicles proposed for South America by Germany. Any Portuguese readers in?
  18. What is Israel developing? I was under the assumption that the Camel was going to be a lighter vehicle similar to the FCS, and the Merkava Mk.4 was going to stay in service for the foreseeable future.
  19. https://www.janes.com/article/87008/ukraine-details-latest-t-80-upgrades-announces-plans-to-produce-t-84s-this-year
  20. https://nepszava.hu/3027600_honvedsegi-celkeresztben-ketszaz-puma Hungary is (supposedly) considering a buy of several hundred Pumas.
  21. As a heads up the image you posted isn't displaying. Apparently defence-blog doesn't let people embed their images elsewhere.
  22. Is there any good info on the Turkish Leclerc project? I've only been able to find an image of it.
