  1. Definitely not. That doesn't make any sense, because energies on impact will differ. Gun performance in MJ is practically always measured at the muzzle.
  2. This seriously needs to stop. Not helping anyone, especially if the messages are insulting or no arguments are provided.
  3. German PDF about the OPHELIOS thermal imager used on PERI of Leopard 2:
  4. BAAINBw has successfully tested and certified a new camera vision system for the Puma IFV.
  5. They were advertising on ESuT pretty heavily for some reason. And as for the Austrian plans for Leopard 2 - The only cheap useful upgrades would be modernizing the optics with something like the Hensoldt products together with a modern armor package. Firepower upgrades would also be nice to see, but looking at the price of a new gun + the corresponding ammunition orders would probably be a dealbreaker for the Austrians.
  6. That barrel failure was due to a mistake made by an operator. They only used one gun after the second one malfunctioned, not due to turret electronics. And multiple tests showed that Gepard was able to defeat drones at >1000m distance. These systems are meant to defend frontline units. The Luftwaffe uses the MANTIS system for close range air defense of infrastructure.
  7. We worked with this as well, trust me, this does not work as well as advertised and especially these NNs give high rate of false returns.
  8. The sideskirts of the modernized T-72B3 indeed use same explosive filler as Relikt ERA, so there often is a confusion regarding that. The T-80BVM tanks are protected by Relikt ERA but their base armor is incredibly old so i have big doubts whether these tanks can resist the combination of L/55 and DM63.
  9. Some weird takes (like inability to penetrate T-72B3) but thanks for the good research!
  10. Taken from twitter of Nicholas Drummond. Interesting to note that A7V is advertised with Trophy and „revised passive armour package“ (certainly hull add-on, anything else remains to be seen)
  11. @Willy Brandt @SH_MM don't know if it's worth it to continue trying to explain this to him...
  12. The gun was along other things demonstrated to a delegation of foreign military personnel in 2019. Yes i have seen it on the Strategie & Technik blog as well, but as you said there is little to no information so i wondered whether you had any. Quite plausible that plans have been changed now. Possibly DM63Plus redesignated to DM73 and previous DM73 design now called KE2020Neo. But that’s just speculation on my behalf.
