  1. Interestingly enough, the last Shermans only left service this year: https://www.janes.com/article/79476/paraguayan-army-retires-last-m4-shermans-from-service But to answer your question, if you were fighting guerillas that had no access to anti-tank weaponry it would be useful. I don't think it would be worthwile to upgrade them any further than maybe replacing the main gun with a low-pressure 90mm, though.
  2. Would this be taking the place of the K-2 procurement?
  3. http://dmilt.com/europe/romania-army-expresses-interest-in-leopard-2-tanks Romania wants to purchase 60 Leo 2A5
  4. Griffin 1= AUSA 2016 demo vehicle, the one painted grey Griffin 3= OMFV Entry shown at AUSA 2018, with hexagonal camouflage
  5. The M8 and Griffin have been down-selected for the Mobile Protected Firepower bid, leaving out SAIC. The Company has stated that they plan to offer something for OMFV. https://breakingdefense.com/2018/12/army-picks-bae-gd-for-mpf-light-tank-prototypes/ Could it be that prototype that they were building last year, or a different off-the-shelf vehicle?
  6. https://www.dutchnews.nl/news/2018/12/defence-spending-to-be-stepped-up-more-tanks-and-f-35-jets/ The Dutch military has decided to purchase, among other things, more tanks. Are there any surplus Leo 2s left or will the Dutch have to shell out for new builds?
  7. A few designs for the LVT(X) program. Any other info on these guys would be appreciated!
  8. What was the British rationale for not liking the ammo storage in the turret?
  9. A report on using a "Mobile Energy Depot" to make and supply fuel cells to vehicles in the field: https://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc1021779/m2/1/high_res_d/4307142.pdf
  10. I thought they were building a prototype for this, was it cancelled?
  11. Hey Fellas, on Page 33 of this document on the AGS competition, a bid from Thyssen-Henschel is reported as the "TH-459L". Any clues on what this might be?
  12. Don't think I've seen this posted here before- An alternative proposal for the IFV component of ASM: http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a234077.pdf
