        This is great news!
        The Anglo-Saxons NEVER knew how to make SLEEPING armored vehicles, but SUPER-EXPENSIVE - regularly !!! Have you bought some shit for crazy money? Very well! Let them try it somewhere else in Iraq: "Abrams" and "Challengers" have already burned out there !!!
        PS At the same time: "Latvia buys 123 units of second-hand tracked armored vehicles from Britain ..." N-yes-ah ... This is the cycle of second-hand metal in NATO ...

                T-54 is probably a good tank, but I don’t remember a single conflict, wherever he showed himself. That T-62 in the Iran-Iraq war showed himself against the English Chieftains very well.

                  Yes, the early modifications really didn’t get anywhere, just these tanks appeared at about the same time as the Centurions. But the later T - 54/55 are not bad at fighting around the world until now. And they continue to be unrecognizably modernized, for example, like this Slovenian T - 55

              prayed at him - I almost bought the following model from Britain by inertia:

                    The control was carried out using a front wheel mounted in a motorcycle-type fork. However, the car could make a turn with a small radius with the help of tracks, which allowed the differential mounted on the SdKfz 2.

              That’s enough for you ... They have traditionally the highest level of infantry training, for the same Americans and others before them, as before Beijing on four wheels.

              For example, in Iraq they took a sad first place in casualties from friendly fire. What does it mean? The fact that more often than others were in direct contact with the enemy, and did not beat him remotely, as Americans love.

                Right The British are fighting a little in the old way. Ahead infantry on foot, in groups,
                50 meters behind it are tanks. So we were taught - because the first IDF instructors were
                the British.
                And they do not like breakouts, environments. Gradual extrusion, frontal pressure.

      Yes, nothing typewriter. Compared to previous BRM models, the frontal projection armor is reinforced by more than 15%. New thermal imagers allow you to determine the location of the enemy’s armored vehicles, even if it is in the fuel economy mode. The engine’s resource is also increased, the BRM will be able to operate in difficult terrain. The Swedes are interested in it. Negotiations are ongoing.

    Look at the fellows, the Austrians and the Spaniards, not only developed a machine for their armies, but also managed to foist it on the little shaves. ASCOD BMPs were developed by the Austrian Steyr-Daimler-Pooh and the same diversified Spanish company, Santa Barbara. Moreover, the tower was an Austrian-developed SP-30, armed with a two-plane 30-mm Mauser automatic cannon MK 30-2, and the chassis was Spanish.

    In addition to the BMP, the ASCOD family includes: light tank LT105, chassis for air defense systems (AAMC) and ZSU (AAGS), ATGMC SPTRK, 81-mm or 120-mm self-propelled mortar AMC120, BREM (ARRV), BRM (ALC), control and communication machine (ACCC), mobile ANP (AAOP) and ambulance (AAMB).

    http://www.army-guide.com/rus/product111.html


    It can be seen after the failure with its first and last BMP "Warrior", mainly associated with a complex of weapons, which include: lack of stabilization of the 30-mm L21A1 Rarden cannon; the absence of a 30-mm cartridge with a feathered projectile in the ammunition load of the cannon and, accordingly, the inability to hit the armor protection of promising armored targets; the inability to suppress the dismounted tank-hazardous manpower with 30-mm cannon fire, the small-britters decided to finally abandon the development of armored vehicles.

    Yes, 38-42 tons. This is a tank, this is a heavy self-propelled howitzer, but no matter how the armored vehicle with the described purpose, with which, by the way, not everything is clear either ... I would like more versatility from the modern car. Judging by the contours of the reservation is so-so, mediocre, where does this weight come from? And what about the energy ratio? With the Austrian army, everything is clear for a long time, it is ceremonial, expensive and stupid. And the British there too.

    It is enough to know that the "promising machine" Scout SV is a BMP ASCOD (Austrian Spanish Cooperative Development), developed in accordance with the British requirements, created by Steyr-Daimler-Puch (Austria) and Santa Bárbara Sistemas ( Spain). The British army wants to get a heavy infantry fighting vehicle, light tank, anti-aircraft complex, repair and recovery vehicle, command, sanitary and other types of equipment on a single tracked chassis.

    But will a new BRM not be produced on a new chassis? What kind of crap in the photo?
    Chassis "Warrior" with a new turret. Isn't that what a new car should look like?

      According to the press service, the British Army "Scout SV" will arrive "in two main modifications: the first (244 vehicles) will be armed with a 40 mm automatic telescopic CTAS cannon manufactured by Lockheed Martin, and the second, PMRS (Protected Mobility Reconnaissance Support, PMRS), will be equipped with the "Protector" remote control system from "Kongsberg" company. ”(Quote)

    The car is pretty tall. So this is another self-propelled target.

      Come to the Donbass, and everything will be for you. You will see how and where the infantry is needed, and where the battalion is better than the infantry, I’m silent about the tanks, and you don’t have anything, the situations are very different, and you always need such equipment there isn’t in a certain situation, what’s my point, the dude with five shots to the RPG-7, and the tight cover of the PC-dude, the optics of the bridges, in the opera, just like the bridges itself, is important

    By weight, it’s not an armored vehicle at all. 38-42 tons. Almost a tank.

    Yes, no one disputes the "professionalism of professionals" (in quotes because there is a pun of some kind), it is just that all this is knocked out of the general concept of the development of BTT, which was also created at no small cost, I must say. Or the British decided to challenge the physics: the higher the tower, the further you can see, it is easier to aim at it, the more weight, the lower the maneuverability, etc.
