Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

We are tracking it since program inception. It's probably about 2-3 years out from FOC at this point which is why it's not in the OOB.

I see you used Army Recognition, which the web tracking site "ALEXA.com" (I believe.) has declared it the #1 Defense site on the web.
https://www.armyrecognition.com/marc...alexa.com.html

Also submissions are closed for the next patch. And the Andy/Don "TS Skunk Works Project" is probably by now in the "testing phase" for the next patch release.

Regards,
Pat


EDIT: Sorry should've been more specific in this earlier. I was referring to possible FOC for France.

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

From JANE's it might provide some insight and a little general "tactical" doctrine data as well.

So what you have here is a brief on the French "Scorpion" modernization program.

Enjoy!

Apparently the USMC decided to cancel the ACV1.2 (a fully tracked, more seaworthy variant of the ACV1.1) due to the ACV1.1 being able to handle sea-state 3 conditions (the current AAV can handle sea state 4). There are plans for an ACV2.0 sometime after 2025 with higher water speeds and capable of sea state 4.

Well good thing then that we don't have something else to rip that we put in before it was made operational. That is why EFVP is still in the OOB but not active.....as a reminder

We also have the advantage of dealing with shorter future time frames then we did. Even with the extension to 2025 we're only looking a few years into the future.

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

I have to agree, the financial strains "Corna" this is putting on the world economy's is huge! It's not now going to happen by tomorrow (Which means another HUGE drop of the Dow.) as hoped, but, we're about to approve the largest economic stimulus bill in the history of the U.S.

Our current National Debt (U.S) is sitting around 23.3 Trillion Dollars, this bill will equal 8.58% of the current debt at 2 Trillion Dollars. That bill is designed to ONLY cover a period of 10 -12 weeks. If there's no improvement of the current situation a follow-up bill might be revisited.

We can absolutely see a reduction and or "slow down" in defense acquisitions around the world if this is not resolved in the next few months.

The money for the current Defense Authorization bill has already been allocated for this Fiscal Year (Until 30 SEP 2020.) but, that being said, the Department of Defense does represent the second highest "individual component" (This includes the Overseas Contingency Operations of our budget. Pays for wars etc.) behind Social Security the electrify "third rail" of politics here.

Logic follows that behind social programs, the defense budgets of most countries especially in parts of Asia and Europe will find themselves in the same situation as us potentially.

And you have to wonder what's going on in Russia as, at least here there's not much news except for the current "Oil War" between Russia and neighboring countries against Saudi Arabia and oddly in regards to the last OPEC.

By all appearances Oil in Russia is going for about $55.00 per barrel which is about 3 to 4 dollars less then they budgeted for. Oil and some other national resources is what's paying for their defense budget. I still am not seeing ARMATA/T-50 and ARMATA IFV (T-15) before 2025, especially with this these issues currently going on in Russia.

So we might see a "blood bath" in some OOB's. And in line with this Thread, AJAX wasn't isn't even to start IOC until this Fall. How will this affect that? It's too soon to tell except, you can bet I'll be watching this and other programs very closely over the next several months.

I devoted 15 years of my career concerning financial issues relating to our sailors.

If you are investing for your retirement, "stay the course" there's a reason it's called "dollar cost averaging" and this is a good time to be invested if your "time horizon" until retirement is still few years off.

I hope everyone (And your families.) can hang in there, it will end hopefully in the next few months. As many of my former compatriots (Sub Folks) are posting "Self Isolation" at home is nothing!! We are home with our families, we can eat what we want, we can look out the windows, we can watch TV, access computers, listen to music, read a good book, use a phone, we even watch Sunrises and Sunsets and so much more!!

We couldn't (And still can't.) do most of any of that on a Submarine.

And like working on a Submarine the DOD expects me to come to work and I'll be there for the duration. As I know many of you out here have to do the same.

Stay Strong!!

As a CO once told me and in writing "I was the conscious of the command."

I don't assume that role here, but I hope you know where I'm coming from.

Regards,
Pat

The last info I found on Ajax was late summer so the date in the OOB has been adjusted to September. If it's correct or changes is irrelevant as the OOB is going out with it entering service 9/120
