    New NK armored car. 5 doors, appears to be not too much into this whole "MRAP" and mine-resistance thing.

     
     
       MGS, kek. Not sure about gun, but it looks to be umm.. mid-engined? 2 crewmembers in the front doesn't leave much space for engine.

     
     
       New tank

       Muzzle refer. system, probably smoke grenades sticking out of turret edges with what is possibly a mock up of a radar (so it could represent soft-kill APS similar to K2's, where radar actives smoke grenade launchers). Also it looks like gunner was possibly moved to the right of the gun, at least what appears to be a gunner sight is on the right. Not sure about 2nd sight (a big box closer to a hatch). New ATGM launcher that now is retractable.

    Scolopax got a reaction from Eliz in Anti-air thread: Everything that goes up must come down, and we'll help you go down   
    This seems to be the prototype of the system that would go on to become Goalkeeper and find use in the Dutch navy.  I don't have much of anything else beyond that, but I suppose some digging into the history of Goalkeeper could give you more.

    Czech MOD selected Spyder-MR as the new AD system replacing the old (albeit somewhat modernized) 2K12 Kub. MOD will buy four batteries installed on Tatra 815-7 vehicles. It's quite a logical selection after the purchase of the Elta EL/M-2084 MADR radars and considering the already existing integration of the system for Tatra vehicles.

    ...Lynx appears next to Bradley, and they couldn't film from some better angles or closer

    so, here's KF41 close to one of them M113 versions instead

    T-80UD trying to drown itself because of shame of having Kharkovite engine inside.

       BTW, this image also can show problems for self-driving systems/AI - driver probably thought that this was a shallow puddle, not a hole into nearby flooded mines.

    New mine-clearing vehicle on BMP-3 chassis was spotted during Kavkaz 2020 exercises.

       Looks like it can carry even more rockets than 5, judging by numbers of rockets on left side of the launcher (from vehicle pov). It also have electronic/magnetic mine clearing system on the front, AFAIK. Also, it have something that looks like APS, but i don't see radars.
