Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

Just got home from work, checked in on the forum, when that nagging voice had me recheck my last post #40. Well my apologies too everyone, I got my photo info reversed, the model shows the original turret, the photo is actually the improved "protected" turret. Notice the difference at the point where the gun is mounted. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Regards,
Pat

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

I've been waiting for someone to pick up this vehicle from FNSS Turkey and can now report that Malaysia will be purchasing 257 units made in 12 different variants to include a two man turreted IFV. As far as I can determine Turkish forces still have not picked up on this vehicle. It is fully amphibous out of the box but can be fitted with hydro-jets to increase speed. Can be fitted out with various weapons from 12.7mm, ATGW to AA. Most notably it seems it turned out to be very capable in desert ops as well. Remember I only use actual or expected fielded dates in all my posts as a general reminder.

This is just one improvement of one of the most widely used and longest lasting APC's in the world.

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

It's time to start tracking the USAs Ground Combat Vehicle (GVC) program. The GVC will be the first combat vehicle designed from the ground up to fight in an IED environment. Reportedly it'll offer a higher level of protection then is currently available with current MRAPs. The players are in place for the competition. We'll see and you decide.

This will be an interim fix until the GVC gets fielded, which might also replace the BRADLEY.

In my world of "hunt and peck" thank you all for not beating me up on my last post where I had "GVC" vice "GCV". The third team headed by SAIC is now identified as follows:

Note related links at bottom of article that are worth a look.
Next ties in the three teams to the GCV program:

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

Missed this, so with my apologies I correct myself that in post #47 the picture of the modified BRADLEY is BAEs entry in the GCV competition as the PUMA will be SIACs entry. As a reminder though they will look familiar they will be adapted to the "IED World" of combat we're in now, and will replace the BRADLEY over time. They will also be up-gunned (Up to 40mm), up-armored and up-sensored.
Regards,
Pat

Side note for future reference (say for "what if" mods/OOBs).
The 30mm Bushmaster intended to be mounted on the new USMC EFV is designed to be able to upgrade to 50mm.
Just a FYI.
