    There is a large terror attack ongoing in the center of Vienna. At least three attackers reported, also at least seven dead including a policeman.

    Don't see anything noticeably different which would make sense given the A4 changes are mostly internal.

    The Leopard 2 T19 turret was fitted with an actual autoloader in 1983. The turret was fitted to a Leopard 1 hull for test.

    Scolopax reacted to MoritzPTK in SH_MM tells us about NGP, which was sort of but not really like Armata   
    NGP Render
     
     

     
    2 Versions: IFV Variant with 50mm Rh503 (300 shots) and 6-8 dismounts, MBT variant with 140mm nPzK (30 rounds)

    Both variants were proposed to have significant ballistic protection (55-70t) and (as seen on the render) the Diehl AVePs APS. Both operated by 2 man crews with all around camera / thermal vision. Kind of resembles Armata platform if you ask me.

    View roughly from the grave of Jaroslav Hašek (the author of the famous book The Good Soldier Švejk) towards the medieval castle of Lipnice nad Sázavou, Czech-Moravian highland area. 

     
    View from the ruins of Ralsko castle sitting on a volcanic peak, northern Bohemia. This area used to be a Soviet military zone till 1990 and cyrilic writings can still be found on the castle walls.

     
    Lužice mountains, Northern Bohemia at the German border. 

     
    Very speciffic countyside around Louny, some 50 km to the north-west of Prague. The photo is taken from a place which is probably the oldest European quartzite mine and a place which was inhabited since 2 million years ago. The oldest traces of buildings are 250 thousand years old. 

     
    Valley of Jizera river with not just one but two castle ruins (Vranov - Pantheon and Frýdštejn), so-called Czech paradise natural area. Czechia has officially 461 medieval castles and their ruins (not counting huge number of chateaus) and with less than 79 thousand square kilometers it's really difficult not to find some. 

     
    View from Radyně castle ruin (near Pilsen city) towards Šumava mountain range which  creates the south-western border with Germany and Austria.
