The French army is preparing for the first operational deployment of its new 140-mm caliber Missile Moyenne Portée (MMP) digital missile system.




   Major Jean-Luc Dietler of the Technique de l'Armée de Terre (STAT) section of the French Ministry of Defense told Jane that the MMP systems will be deployed with four French army regiments - 2e Régiment Etranger d'Infanterie, 2e Régiment Etranger Parachutistes, 1er Régiment de Hussards Parachutistes and 3e Régiment de Hussards - and a regiment of special forces of the French army in support of Operation Barhane in Mali in June or September of this year.


   Developed by the MBDA in France for the requirements of the French army, the MMP is designed to replace the missiles MBDA Milan and Lockheed Martin / Raytheon FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank guided missiles, which are currently in service with the army and special services, as well as Euromissile HOT (Haut subonique Optiquement Téléguidé Tiré d'un Tube) and MTDA Eryx ATGM, mounted on armored personnel carriers of the Vahicule de l'avant blindé (VAB) 6th armored personnel carrier.


   The MMP will intergraded with the future FÉLIN infantry program (Fantassin à Équipement et Liaisons Intégrés) of the French army. It will also be integrated with the Nexter Systems CT40M turret with 40 mm autocannon, chosen to equip the future French army with 6x6 Engin Blindé de Reconnaissance et the Combat (EBRC: an armored combat and reconnaissance vehicle designated as "Jaguar") in the Engin Blindé Multi (EBMR) segment of the French army worth about 5 billion euros (5.93 billion US dollars). 

   The ATGM is equipped with a combined guidance system, which includes a thermal imaging, a television guidance, an inertial navigation system, and guidance via fiber optic cable. The navigation and inertial system is produced by Sagem Défense Sécurité, it combines an uncooled infrared sensor and a television camera. Fiber-optic communication (Nexans) allows to broadcast the videofeed to the launcher from missile and control the rocket. The flight path can be either direct or ballistic, to hit tanks in the roof.

   The missile has a dual launch system to ensure the safety of firing from enclosed spaces. The cruising speed is 160 m / s. The maximum range of flight is 4,1 km.

Belarusian MM-60.


Armor piercing capability - 300 mm. The weight of the grenade in the container is 4 kg, sights and electronics - 1 kg, the range of the direct shot is 150 m, the aimed shots can be taken at ranges up to 400 m.



   The DSS allows neutralizing of the human factor and increasing firing accuracy in a substantial manner. Owing to modern optoelectronics and special software, distorting action made by an operator, including hand tremor, have been mitigated almost to the full extent. The DSS also features air burst function, shoring up the grenade's capabilities to engage an enemy's manpower in buildings and open engineering installations. The integration of a laser rangefinder, a ballistic calculator, and an inertial measurement unit allows defining of a target's trajectory and calculating of a position of the marker, making target engagement easier. The DSS is fitted with a MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail for collimator or reflex sights.

      Do you like pontificating on the infantryman's load? Want to see how different gear choices affect said load?  If so, check out this spreadsheet including an itemized list of "best of breed" (IMHO) gear! Download it and customize to suit your own preferred equipment.  The "Configured Totals" section should auto-calculate weights and ammunition totals for your selected items, and you can copy and paste "Configured Totals" values into the light and heavy load sections for comparison. 
      I've tried to provide a fairly comprehensive list of gear for the rifle squad and machine gun teams.  A few items are notional, and those should be noted as such. I've also tried to balance both lightness and capability.  I, however, mostly intend this spreadsheet to serve as an outline and handy way to calculate total values for any items you choose to add or change.
      While I'm sure there are a more than a few errors, this spreadsheet is merely intended as a starting point for your own explorations, and I am NOT likely to maintain this particular version. Enjoy!

      Hello, my friends and Kharkovites, take a sit and be ready for your brains to start to work - we are going to tell you a terrible secret of how to tell apart Soviet tanks that actually works like GLORIOUS T-80 and The Mighty T-72 from Kharkovites attempt to make a tank - the T-64. Many of capitalists Westerners have hard time understanding what tank is in front of them, even when they know smart words like "Kontakt-5" ERA. Ignoramus westerners!
         Because you are all were raised in several hundreds years old capitalism system all of you are blind consumer dummies, that need big noisy labels and shiny colorful things to be attached to product X to be sold to your ignorant heads and wallets, thats why we will need to start with basics. BASICS, DA? First - how to identify to which tank "family" particular MBT belongs to - to T-64 tree, or T-72 line, or Superior T-80 development project, vehicles that don't have big APPLE logo on them for you to understand what is in front of you. And how you can do it in your home without access to your local commie tank nerd? 
         Easy! Use this Putin approved guide "How to tell appart different families of Soviet and Russian tanks from each other using simple and easy to spot external features in 4 steps: a guide for ignorant western journalists and chairborn generals to not suck in their in-depth discussions on the Internet".
      Chapter 1: Where to look, what to see.
      T-64 - The Ugly Kharkovite tank that doesn't work 
         We will begin with T-64, a Kharkovite attempt to make a tank, which was so successful that Ural started to work on their replacement for T-64 known as T-72. Forget about different models of T-64, let's see what is similar between all of them.

      T-72 - the Mighty weapon of Workers and Peasants to smash westerners
         Unlike tank look-alike, made by Kharkovites mad mans, T-72 is true combat tank to fight with forces of evil like radical moderate barbarians and westerners. Thats why we need to learn how identify it from T-64 and you should remember it's frightening lines!

      The GLORIOUS T-80 - a Weapon to Destroy and Conquer bourgeois countries and shatter westerners army
         And now we are looking at the Pride of Party and Soviet army, a true tank to spearhead attacks on decadent westerners, a tank that will destroy countries by sucking their military budgets and dispersing their armies in vortex of air, left from high-speed charge by the GLORIOUS T-80!

      T-14 ARMATA 
              This thread is about glorious russian MBT T-14, known as "Armada", "T-95", "black eagle", "T-99" and other stupid Western names given to Object 148 (T-14 in some recent documents). Here is number of images connected to that vehicle.

      Official model of unknown "artillery vehicle". Yeah, Putin, we know that this is T-14. Note Gatling gun on turret right side.
      Artist impression of T-14 based on known model, by Fyodor Podporin. 

      T-14 will use Relikt ERA, which is considerable improvement over Kontakt-5 in resisting to tandem HEAT warheads and EFPs.

      Side skirts would be thicker on a real vehicle, i think. Relikt have AFAIK bigger size than Kontakt-5 ERA build-in blocks.

      Whole album with renders: 
      Video of same render from same artist:

            People expect that tank would have turret weapon system like what you see on the BMP-3 "Bakhcha-U" turret - a lot of weapons in one turret for one gunner to work with. T-14 is rumored to be equipped with 30 (or even 57) mm autocannon, 4-6 barrel gatling type MG/HMG, new 125 (2A82) or even 152 mm (2A83) smoothbore cannons. Turret is unmanned, crew of 3 would be located in frontal part of hull, behind very serious frontal armor inside of compartment, well protected from all directions. Cannon would be loaded by new autoloading device. I hope that Burevestnik is working on them, those guys managed to make 100 mm Naval gun with RoF of 300 shots per minute.
            I really like how turret looks, but i don't understand why there is such a big turret "busket" for unmanned turret with all ammo placed inside of hull in special armored housing. Also, i don't see gunner sight and proposed FSC radar on 3D model (i assume that panoramic sight is for commander). Laser sensors on 3D model are from T-90A variant of "Shtora".
            Some officials mentioned works on new active protection system, that consist of powerfull radar station, that can work on "long ranges" and engage incoming projectiles (missiles) with that gatling MG. Will this system survive development stage and be presented on serial tanks is unknown. Although turret for T-15 Armata-based IFV already was shown with new APS "Afganit".
            If you pay attention you may see that artist used T-80 rollers for Armata chassis, and this is not a mistake - according to some sources Armata heavy chassis will use T-80 or T-80-like rollers to save weight. And looking at rear part of that tank you may notice a engine deck from gas-turbine equipped version of the T-80, which can be mistake becuase MoD want Armata with new ~1500 HP diesel engine.
