Pso

More of the worlds armed forces are using PSO variations to combat the growing threat of world terror in urban areas.In the years 2011 to 2018, the Bundeswehr intend to have a total of 150 of their LEOPARD 2s fitted with PSO components. In addition, 50 so-called UrbOp (Urban Operations) kits are to be procured; these also are also based on PSO components. This is the Bundeswehr’s reaction to the changed mission requirements that German soldiers are encountering in their conflict-prevention and crisis-containment missions, including the fight against international terrorism. With the PSO version, KMW, as the partner of the Bundeswehr, are turning the LEOPARD 2 battle tank into a weapon system that is technically fit for the 21st century.

Uploaded to Leopardo 2E Section.

Clean and dirty versions included, very effective camouflage for all urban areas and used in Iraq and Afghanistan. Can blend in to various terrain types.

I understand alot of the modern pixelated combat uniforms (e.g. Canadian and some US uniforms) are designed to counter image intesifying cameras/scopes. Is the same true of PSO on tanks, and is this modeled (inadvertently or not) in SB PPE?

Cheers.

Pongo

Not aware of that, wouldnt expect that to be modeled here in sbprope, but am sure someone with more knowledge on this one can answer you better.

Really? The PSO is not under development by the Bundeswehr. KMW took their own money to make a demonstrator. The PSO was made, how they (KMW) think, a Leo should be upgraded for urban warfare. They give it to their customers (BW,...) and are waiting for some feedback from them).

Btw, some pictures from last week (taken by Erazor):
