  1. This thing looks way better than boomerang and it seems is also packing larger troop compartment in smaller chassis. Of course access to Western drivetrains makes 8x8 development much easyer as the drive trains use many COTS components.
  2. Looks quite similar to Kratos loyal wingman , but it seems to be meant carry mostly air to ground munitions https://naked-science.ru/article/tech/kitajtsy-skopirovali-potentsialno-revolyutsionnyj
  3. Electronic warfare J-16D , its quite interesting to see its without internal cannon and IRST
  4. Indeed the US has been hard at it trying to prevent any nuclear proliferation , and anyone with anything nuclear basically build their own . Note that French were offering Australia a denuclearized sub because no one ever considered sale of nuclear sub. Russia in the past leased a nuclear sub to India for 3 years but there was considerable pressure not to renew the lease. This deal is kinda opening shot for export of nuclear subs
  5. Hungarian Lynx in tetris camo , in what looks to be the construction site of the factory where they will manufacture Lynx in Hungary.
  6. Motorcycle helmet with glued on 3M filters . Its always amusing how often 'future soldier' projects concepts run with a motorcycle helmets.
  7. M1 purchase Depends on Euro billions flowing , at the moment it seems there is a rough road ahead for the Polish and Hungarian euro billions. Its much easyer to spend billion on defense when EU funds account for more than 4% of your GDP
  8. It says A locally modified BMP-1 with Amphibious kit In Nasr City https://milinme.wordpress.com/2011/02/07/egyptian-days-3/ right beside the Photo of moded up M113 I guess some chinese inspiration behind that BMP mod
  9. Egypt ,high water speed BMP mod, ad some fairings and stick a couple of outboard engines on it.
  10. Apparently they couldn't build it even higher , and have not jet mastered hard anodising ,show optic all dinged up For AR15 type you kinda have an excuse for the height but not with any of the Russian guns
  11. Something new . Premiere of "Army-2021": a novelty in the field of wheeled armored vehicles will be shown at the forum At "Army-2021" a new multipurpose armored amphibious vehicle will be shown for the first time A promising combat reconnaissance amphibious vehicle (BRM) will be presented for the first time at the Army-2021 forum, sources in the military-industrial complex told Gazeta.Ru. In the future, it can become a platform for a whole family of military equipment. Military observer "Gazeta.Ru" Mikhail Khodarenok learned the tactical and technical characteristics of a promising machine. The newest Russian combat reconnaissance amphibious vehicle, which has not even received its own name, is intended for conducting close and deep tactical reconnaissance, carrying combat, marching and patrolling of troops, as well as for combating enemy reconnaissance and reconnaissance and sabotage groups. In the design of the BRM chassis (wheel arrangement 4x4), units and assemblies of the Atlet family cars are used. The layout is made with the location of the power compartment in the middle of the armored body of the vehicle. On the sides and in the stern, one single-wing door is made for embarking and disembarking a combat crew. BRM is equipped with optical-electronic reconnaissance complexes with thermal imagers, radar reconnaissance means and small drones, radio direction-finding and acoustic reconnaissance means. Together, all this equipment is connected by an onboard information and control system (CIUS). The armament on the BRM is the Arbalet-DM remote-controlled combat module (armament - 12.7-mm 6P49 Kord machine gun or 7.62-mm PKTM machine gun). A number of experts suggest that the newest BRM may eventually replace the armored reconnaissance and patrol vehicle BRDM-2, which was mass-produced from 1963 to 1982 by the Gorky Automobile Plant and from 1982 to 1989 by the Arzamas Machine-Building Plant. BRM is an initiative development of the manufacturer and so far, even, strictly speaking, is not a military product. The car does not yet have an advertising passport and an export passport. Therefore, BRM with difficulties broke through to the "Army-2021"
  12. Yes they have done a couple of small turrets and order from UAE got them going, but its still a dude in his garage. But yes quite impressive start for a company with 2 employees.
  13. Valhalla turret? LOL Valhalla turrets is literally a guy in his garage and lots of concepts and renders but little in way of actual turrets.
  14. They desperately need to make a NLOS top attack ATGM even Iran now produces sort of Spike clone others have NLOS as well ,Serbia ALAS ;China AFT-10 even Norks have their own.
  15. Cummins ACE -> Junkers fathered Ukrainian 6DT redone with enough $ to get traction.
  16. British procurement looking more like that of India every day , evil tongues could say of same folks running the show .
  17. Looking sharp ,i wonder if the added weight degraded its mobility . Old BRDM is extremely mobile ,i remember when Slovenian military trialed Patria AMV and Styer Pandur II 8x8 in off road mobility trials and BRDM was set as benchmark it easily smoked them and armored Humvee as well.
