Some more Armata pictures.

First is a comparison of T-14 Armata and T-90A shot from the same angle -- it clearly shows that the Armata is a different combat chassis from the T-72/T-90 family -- the road wheels also are different.

Plus, look at that glacis armor improvement over the T-90A!

Second is another artist's impression of what Armata might look without the applique armor -- they're getting better at drawing these as time goes on.

Someone tried to calculate the size of the tank.

Looks like those new vehicles (Kurganets and maybe Boomerang) will not be manufactured for a quite some time. The KurganMash factory signed a contract with russian ministry of defense for production of hundreds of modernized BMP-3's. It will take few years (from 4 to 6 years) to complete this order. So no bigger scale production of Kurganets can be expected before 2020-2022.

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

They're coming I've been tracking this since March/April starting with ref. 1. The STRYKER is to mount a Konsberg 30mm HV cannon with a 7.62mm coax mg. I believe they'll also have an ATGW capability as well. This is currently intended for the 2nd CAV Regiment which at the time the first ref appeared, was our only armored unit left in Europe. That has now changed as an armored brigade I believe will be sent to Europe this fall. It is to include the M1A2 SEP V2 along with the STRYKER. And yes it's on my work list. Just a quick note again about the Russian new equipment, I think some of you will be surprised to see that they'll get some of this equipment sooner than later with a couple already assigned to active army units. The immediate issue is where to put in the OOB. But there's time anyway and remember we might not even have a patch for next year as it seems to me along with all these equipment issues, they're both a very "fluid situation" no intel just a feeling. Until "someone" tells me to "step it up" it's one day at a time.

Now if only my second bathroom project had gone as well as the first, I'm just feeling a little and right now.

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

Just bringing it home for my tracking and review from the SPA/SPAA Thread so this might not be new to you!!

From the USA PEO GCS office the AMPV is to start a 52 month (~4.3yrs.) Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) process by BAE the contract winner. The EMD once completed will turnover 29 vehicles the Army for evaluation. This process should take about 2-3yrs. based on my tracking of these events as in reality we're dealing with a known, though moderately improved platform. Best guess tracking to somewhere out to 2022/2023. The ref. is dated 24 Dec. 2014. Very much falls in line with what Mark just posted as also one of my sources as you know and the others I'm holding in my APC folder.

http://www.peogcs.army.mil/ampv.html
(Covers models to be built on the bottom of 1st para.)

The home office...
http://www.peogcs.army.mil/index.html

ALSO...since we're at it...

The USMC will see their operational capability with the ACV 1.1 in 2020. This will prove a very hot competition between BAE and SAIC (TERREX 2 8x8) which are both fielding known fully amphibious platforms. It reports had given SAIC an early edge as the TERREX, first seen as a 6x6 platform was the first successful 360 situational awareness APC developed to include an RWS to operate in the same manner. TERREX 1 as it's now referred to was originally developed by TIMOTHY Industries of Ireland. And thought they just made good Beer and Whiskey!?! TERREX (1) was one of my first posts in the APC Thread where I'll re-post this to.
http://news.usni.org/2015/11/24/mari...stems-and-saic

I feel like I'm slowly coming back. I hear some of you already!?! (Used not for it's normal meaning! )

Need I say it-yeah, with an addition-CONTINUING TO TRACK.

Two for one not bad Don.

Regards,
Pat
