Fallout Re: SP and SPAA Developments

These are for now just FYI issues I'm tracking, "Wish I may, wish I might...", we'll see but, in the meantime what the hell is a STRYKER doing in this Thread!?! Well find out below...
http://www.janes.com/article/73099/b...shorad-vehicle

ALGERIA: Now confirmed has the Russian BUK-M2E in service, this is the tracked version..
http://www.janes.com/article/73123/a...s-buk-delivery
http://www.ausairpower.net/APA-9K37-Buk.html
http://www.army-technology.com/proje...issile-system/
http://www.military-today.com/missiles/buk_m2e.htm


Note: Whenever I can use the "ausaairpower" website I will this think tank does excellent research. And they were right about the issues with F-35 while most were still on the "ouh ra ra" band wagon.

Regards,
Pat

Yes BUT..... the article says it's NOT the tracked version

The story did not mention the SAM system, which was mounted on a Belarusian-made MZKT 6922 6x6 wheeled vehicle instead of the tracked carriers used by most other Buk operators, including Egypt and Syria.

Fallout Re: SP and SPAA Developments

Though refs. make a distinction between the export tracked version BUK-M2E and the 6x6 wheeled version BUK-M2EK I'm not sure why the articles are leading to the tracked version. However further digging shows it is the 6x6 version.

Though ref. 1 covers the world I use the web site because it specializes on Africa and the Middle East/Persia. Also the JANE's ref. now "working" at least off the web is indicating wheeled as well. From ref. 2...
"The story did not mention the SAM system, which was mounted on a Belarusian-made MZKT 6922 6x6 wheeled vehicle instead of the tracked carriers used by most other Buk operators, including Egypt and Syria." Ref. 3 and I looked right at the "darn" thing earlier and it didn't register in my brain shows what in the lower right hand picture from the exercise? You got it.

Stared right at that picture several times-"Deer in the headlights" syndrome I guess.

I now have a new 6x6 wheeled Icon for next release. It's bound to be needed for other nations eventually

Final conformation for Algeria from the 17th and I didn't even look here like I normally do everyday.
https://www.armyrecognition.com/augu..._81708171.html

Also from DID: Finland not to start it's K9 training until 2019. They don't have the training and BSM systems in place to support them yet.

"Norwegian firm Nammo A/S has come to a landmark agreement external link with the Finnish Defense Forces (FDF) to supply its newly developed artillery shells. Helsinki is the first international customer for Nammo’s 155 mm insensitive munitions, high explosive, extended range ammo (IM-HE-ER)—which has been under development since 2002 and partly funded by the state-owned Norwegian Defense Material Agency (NDMA)—which covers almost twice the distance of Nammo’s previous precision-strike artillery ammunition offerings. The ammo purchase forms part of a long-term project by Finland to reinforce the Army’s artillery capability and fire-power, which has already seen the February purchase of second-hand K9 Thunder 155 mm/52 caliber self-propelled artillery systems from South Korea. Training with the K9s will commence in 2019 following a modernization with Finnish sub-systems that include battle management, global positioning, communications and camouflage bolt-ons." Barring no developmental issues, this would push FOC to late 2019 or first half of 2020.

Regards,
Pat

Land Ceptor is making its arms show debut at DSEI 2017:

Some basic information about CAMM (Land application) on the MBDA website:

I do not know when it is due to replace Rapier.
