    I also did this while talking with someone else:
     
    It would seem to be a similar if not identical case diameter to current 120s and the Rh130. (obviously a good margin of error on those dimensions)

    These designs seem to stray from the usual good practices of tank building. Bulky, tall and with little space for suspension. Armour on the "cannon" seems equal to that of a c2(IFV?). How is that justified?

    Sorry it was referred to as a white paper elsewhere but yeah its only slightly less vague than the defense review itself. At least the name Challenger 3 is finally confirmed by the government.

    I believe earlier on (mid century) they provided more power than electric drives but seems like at least by the mid to late 80s pure electric drives were able to deliver similar speeds.

    Marconi IFCS (Chieftain Mk.9/10/11/Khalid, nearly identical to Challenger 1 FCS):
     
     
     
    There are more images in the entire brochure but these are the figures. Bold choice of colours.

    AFAIK the one at Greek trials still had TOGs installed but the CR2E spec at that point was to remove it, it just hadn't been done yet - I think the one on display was later on.
     
    The strange CR2E pictured above is for the South African proposal, idk much about it but it appears to be a slightly more austere version compared to full CR2E spec - euro powerpack but standard optics. In any case I believe it lost out to the Leclerc but neither went ahead.

    first i thought it's Altay but it's a different modernization of LEO II by BMC
    Edit: it seems that they put the turret of the Altay with the german 120/44 on a Leopard II chassis

    I believe that is the wheeled prototype for the Future Combat Systems program, which ended up losing to the tracked variant.
