  8. Hold on! ...We need to see $$$ from one hand to another in Germany. As in a contract.

    Rheinmetall will carry out the bulk of the production of tanks and self-propelled guns for Hungary. The German Rheinmertall group announced on September 30, 2019 that it had received a contract worth about 300 million euros from the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) to carry out the bulk of the production of 44 Leopard 2A7 + main tanks and 24 PzH 2000 self-propelled howitzers for Hungary 155 mm / 52. Recall that on December 19, 2018, KMW in Budapest signed a contract with the Hungarian Ministry of Defense for the supply of 44 Leopard 2A7 + tanks and 24 PzH
  10. RBSL Spotted in Netherlands Challenger 2 LEP proposal. This has a brand new turret with the L/55 120mm smoothbore gun. Although externally the new turret looks similar to Challenger 2’s existing one, Rheinmetall has taken an existing Leopard 2 turret and comprehensively re-engineered it. Ammunition storage is in an enlarged turret bustle and below the turret ring in sealed compartments. Rheinmetall plans to use the same sensors, fire control system and BMC4I solution as Ajax.
  11. I am using the term "LAVIII" for a production AFV, the Canadian Light Armoured Vehicle program_ 1996 MOWAG Piranha 3 MK3 LAVIII CDN _. ( prime area to cause confusion) I merely posted the time line (best est). Which gives the estimated contract production time frame. You may deduct your own interpretation at will , if Strikers (a family of veh's ) fit the time line to make you happy, if so I'm happy, if it does not, I'm still happy. However... Comparing RL production contracts vs SB AFV's ie " "The Piranha IIIH, which led to the LA
  12. My point to be clear, to avoid confusion. "I feel like this is where we started and this is where my previous post ended." I concur.😊
  13. I was once given some good advice on my analyst course, To see, one has to look. As for the mitigating question ........test and report back here on your finding in regards to Armour,speed,acceleration so others can learn. Again, AFV data is never back and white (think opsec), LAV's info is no different.
  14. Mowag , GDL (Canada) sites mostly, for timelines. https://www.mil.be/nl/materiaal/piranha-df90 http://www.military-today.com/artillery/piranha_IIIc_df90.htm http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com http://www.warwheels.net AS for length, its a free for all, some count storage boxes, some don't. Best go with hull length in its bare state. I have no illusion on they having conflicting data to be clear. As a operator/ trainer of the series II and II , I can only go on by what data I was provided on course, and through personal research into this AFV's history.

  16. I think you may be mistaken on the LAV family. The first Mowag ( which I operated) was the 2/3 wheel version in N America, then the LAV, then the Striker (which is really a LAV ) were built here in Canada . http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldwar/Switzerland/Mowag_Piranha.php...........shows the history
  17. Already done, select in AAR the map view, then roll the AAR and sit back and watch the battle below you for what ever height you pick, one can pan around while sitting still on the point of ground selected. It's fun to watch the events this way I find.
  18. It's been there from the start this option I believe.
  19. Also the ability to print the map out. I use my IPad as a map screen, small, but works.
  20. I can ask some of my Dragoon friends that were there, this was the regiment that I deployed under in 74, great unit. so long ago. It will take a bit of time. This may help.......https://www.facebook.com/groups/canadianarmytrophy/
