  1. Quite a lot of similarities with the dutch MLU.
  2. Review: Gökdeniz 35mm naval short-range air defense system CIWS for Istanbul-class frigate According to information released by the Turkish naval defense industry, the new generation of Istanbul-class frigate will be fitted with the Gökdeniz naval version of the Korkut self-propelled short-range air defense system that will be mounted on new Istanbul-class of Turkish Navy. a naval version of the Korkut short-range air defense system that was unveiled in May 2019 during the defense exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey. Source: https://www.navyrecognition.com/index.php/focus-analysis/naval-technology/9650-review-goekdeniz-35mm-naval-short-range-air-defense-system-ciws-for-istanbul-class-frigate.html Don't know if it has being posted before, but here it is. Kinda looks like the copied the design of the ASELSAN KORKUT. Wonder how many rounds it has, the Korkut has 400 according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KORKUT. Other systems have like twice that. One even 10 times that amount! CIWS with no rotary cannon, the fire rate is also quite low compared to the others. I miss the Avenger..
  3. Can we think of any reasons why they didn't put the radar boxes at the side of the turret instead of the front? As they did with the Abrams and Merkava?
  4. Is the NERA specifically placed in order to fortify the crew compartment in the turret? The line of NERA on top, between the patches for the crew hatches (?), is also placed interesting. Image suggest, that NERA placement on top, is to protect the area's where the blue stuff is not possible?
  5. Correct me if I am wrong, but does Hungary not already have a new radar network? Source: https://hungarytoday.hu/hungary-deploys-new-3d-nato-radar-medina-hill-15256/ Looks like they have Selex RAT-31DL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selex_RAT-31DL
  6. Probably true. So they only placed forces there to make sure that the conflict does not spill over?
  7. Source: https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2020/11/05/nagorno-karabakh-briefing-nov-5-a71883 What i meant is, what is Iran planning to do? Also take in some land from the NKR? Help Azerbaijan?
  8. Why is Iran moving forces to the border?
  9. How come that there arent any activities in Nakhchivan?
  10. Will all these videos it looks like Armenian is getting steam rolled by a bunch of inexpensive drones. The amount of combat footage a lot.
  11. Just read a good article about the development of the Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers. Link: https://www.savetheroyalnavy.org/development-of-the-queen-elizabeth-class-aircraft-carrier-a-design-history/ Anyone has some pdf/websites that give more information about the sensory and radar systems of the QEC ships? I mostly got new websites, nothing really in detail.
  12. Armenia is getting a lot of causalities and equipment losses by UAV's and such, are they not?
  13. Agreed. What type of defense would be suitable against such targets. That a not easily trackable on a large scale? Is a suitable option, the German Skyshield? Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skyshield
  14. Thank you for sharing. Awesome video. They also mentioned Hollandse signaalapparaten (HS). A predecessor to the now called company Thales Netherlands. The IX83 system and the flycatcher system of HS seem to make the basis of the goalkeeper. Interesting to see the video.
