Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

I should clarify, Australia's BOXER was evaluated with the German 30mm. That's what they are supposed to get along with a mortar, command and ambulance versions. I haven't anything to indicate just a base model for Australia.

UK is to get model as shown, my speculation is again that if AJAX falls behind I would expect UK to follow Australia by mounting the 30mm for the sake of continuity of equipment. I do agree, UK does have several options available to them in regard to weapons stations. We'll just have to see what happens

Regards,
Pt

It's looking like the carry capacity issue for the AAV/SU may solve itself.

The USMC is considering eliminating the anti-tank squad of USMC infantry companies (currently 6x SMAW teams) and issuing the M3A1 MAAWS (i.e Carl Gustaf) as a squad level asset (replacing the AT4 in current WinSPMBT units). The SMAW may be retained in engineer units as currently the M3 doesn't have a thermobaric round.

Yep.
The idea is still under discussion.
Not sure how it'd be implemented. Increase the squad size to add an AT-man (the way they added the M-79 Grenadier)? Drop one AR or GL (seems most likely)?

Definitely NOT something to worry about till the "powers that be" decide what they'll actually do.

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

Well I figured a better show a "pulse" out here, so I've just come across the following...

As many of you know I've been following developments in Australia for many years now going back to the development of the HAWKEI and some formation data I received from the Army concerning MBT unit composition going back to the Vietnam War. Of late it's been the LAND 400 program which recently down selected the BOXER. The LAND 400 Program has now reached Phase 3, this Phase is to decide which IFV they desire for the Army.

Before people get too excited, acquisition isn't slated until 2026. However their M113's are getting older, and though the BOXER is very capable, it's still not a true IFV, even with the 30mm RWS onboard, which is the plan for now and as tested.

However, the Australian Army has been very motivated and aggressive in it's recent acquisitions. Their evaluation programs are very aggressive but, the thing I look at is they're evaluating "proven off the shelve" equipment which might speed up the process, I dare say, for the possibility of acquisition and acceptance by calendar last quarter 2024 or Summer of 2025. Otherwise the ref. is only for FYI (Which it really is now anyway.)

Until next time.
