Default Some Czechland news

Armored Day at our tank museum. Interesting view of new and old equipment. From the new one, Iveco LMV19 light armored vehicle and Pandur II IFV. Plus various other scout vehicles and APCs. Plus few bits of static exposition.
Enjoy!

Nice work.
Just minor note that Active Reserve Tank Company use all variants of T-72 except T-72M4. The reason behind that is probably that army wants to have crews operating all T-72s variants otherwise I don't know.

Hello there,

You were right, I should have checked the pictures first! Great stuff!

While I'm at a complete loss telling what is what in the pre-45 armored cars, the pics of the Pandurs give great coverage. I never realized the OHWS was that big.

On a separate note, the dismounting/mounting of the gun from the Vz.53/59 looks much more straightforward than I thought. How long was it taking in real time?

Keep up the good work!

Thanks to Pavel for correcting me, will try to get more accurate info o other aspects as well - for example on the Airborne Mech Bn, there I had only TOEs for one company.
Plasmakrab, yes, the dismounting was very fast (and surprised me as well) - didn't have a stop watch, but looking at time stamps of the photos, it took ca. minute and a half, mounting it back about the same.

Some news from the Land Forces Day of yesterday:
Light troops fire support vehicle, Land Rover 110 Kovboj. Similar in concept to airborne LR 130 Kajman, but with smaller capacity - while Kajman was designed to transport a full squad, Kovbo carries only its crew.
Light fragment protection from front and back. Armament of a DShK HMG or AGS-17 AGL and a PKB.


Rest of the gallery is here:

And two generally cool pics...
