not that australia is going back to Vietnam, but as a proxy for SE Asia, https://sci-hub.se/https://doi.org/10.1080/15732470902808581 only 15% of road bridges are classified as strong enough to handle 30 tonnes.

 

thus the reason for the earlier picture of a PNG bridge, weight becomes an issue, or leopard 2 deep wading properties are desireable.

Only for non-turreted roles.  Turreted use MSSA as it is the best packaging solution when you have a proper independent commanders sight.


*proposed to use the MSSA. 

 

The Commonwealth didn’t execute the MSSA option for phase 2 Lance turrets (Block 1 or 2), so no reason to think that they’d change their mind for this phase.

Phase 2 and Phase 3 requirements are different.  Will not meet Ph3 without an MSSA.  Ph2 and Ph3 vehicles have different roles.  Ph2, despite ludicrous size is recon.  Ph3 is IFV

Yeah, understand the different roles & tasks of the vehicles to be acquired via phase, but thanks for the explanation. 
 

Happy to be corrected with the requirement number that would indicate that turreted Phase 3 variants require a RWS or have a remote weapon requirement. MSSA negatively affects the overall vehicle height as whilst the SEOSS sight head can retract, the MSSA cannot. 
 

Anecdotally, the safety case for even a static live fire of the MSSA for the phase 2 RMA couldn’t be completed as the software performance was unable to verified.

emove all ATGM

They have not - this uses the pop up Supashock launcher instead of the side mounted type.  As to 30mm - its all about stowed kills.  The 35mm simply cannot carry enough rounds and against the defined targets, 30mm gets it done.
