  1. https://www.nexter-group.fr/actualites/nos-dernieres-actualites/120-shardr-la-nouvelle-generation-de-munition-anti-char.html New Nexter Munitions APFSDS called 120 SHARD. Maybe related to that round we saw with a datalink a few years ago?
  2. Does anyone have any information detailing the steel applique armor added on the M2/M3A2 upgrade? I know it's said its believed to stop 30mm fire in the frontal arc.
  3. Video that peaked my interest so I though I'd share. It's the SEPv2 tanks from 2-12 Cav conducting gunnery in Poland, but they have the counterweights for Trophy on. Just some good views of the chunky Abrams.
  4. Correct, according to the patent the tip segment that snaps off should make up 9-15% of the total penetrator mass.
  5. Not sure if this has been posted here before, if so, forgive me. https://patents.google.com/patent/US6662726B1/en?oq=US+6%2c662%2c726+B1 This is a patent by General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Inc for a kinetic energy penetrator. The initial filing date is 03/08/2000 and the patent was publicized 12/16/2003, which matches up very closely with the M829A3 program. I believe this patent shows the design behind M829A3, feel free to read through and draw you own conclusions. Things I noted: The round is shown defeating what appears
  6. It's being used at Yuma Proving Grounds with Threat Systems and Target Simulation.
  7. Some views through the CITV on an Abrams SEPv2 I got to use today. Incredibly smooth and easy to use, really fun to see which cadets on campus today were a little sweaty.
  8. Branch Week 2020 is starting here at the United States Military Academy and the M1A2 SEPv2 arrived today. And then preceded to smash a light post over with the gun when attempting to rotate the turret.
  9. First live-fires from the M1A2 SEPv3 tanks with 3-8 CAV. https://twitter.com/TreatEmRough/status/1295732476707590148?s=20
  10. Thermal imaging systems of the commanders on the 90s American vehicles.
