  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. http://www.ecsbdefesa.com.br/defesa/fts/Projetos.pdf Interesting document about armored vehicles proposed for South America by Germany. Any Portuguese readers in?
  4. 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.
  5. https://www.janes.com/article/87008/ukraine-details-latest-t-80-upgrades-announces-plans-to-produce-t-84s-this-year
  6. https://nepszava.hu/3027600_honvedsegi-celkeresztben-ketszaz-puma Hungary is (supposedly) considering a buy of several hundred Pumas.
  7. As a heads up the image you posted isn't displaying. Apparently defence-blog doesn't let people embed their images elsewhere.
  8. Is there any good info on the Turkish Leclerc project? I've only been able to find an image of it.
  9. That's an interesting design choice for the 50 cal placement.
  10. Brits make fun of us while they can't even keep their motorists safe from Octopi: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-devon-47144891
  11. Considering that they didn't even test the Ariete I think he's right.
  12. It seems to me that with Drummond there's always an equal possibility he's talking out of his ass.
  13. The Main Battle System. A TARDEC concept that would move crewmen from the tanks into command vehicles, enabling weight and crew savings over a 4-tank unit of Abrams by 50 percent. https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/1015742.pdf
  14. Since the ammo storage was moved, it would have to be completely new if they wanted to carry a reasonable amount of rounds.
  15. It's entirely possible they based the design of the new turret on the old one, but the ammunition is now housed in the bustle. That would require enough modification to be a new design.
  16. Looks like BAE will have to offer a bit more than the Black Knight if they want to win.
  17. Less competition for the Challenger 2 refresh?
  18. Any Idea what he's talking about with the XM302? I couldn't find any info about it on the web.
  19. http://www.tboverse.us/HPCAFORUM/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=24582 Possible or complete BS?
  20. It just seems like they've gone back on that decision, I don't think I've seen a single industry/military source call them that.
  21. Gonna go with a no on that one, chief.
