BURBS Spotted

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.

If panels were to blow-out, the compartments would no longer be sealed, right?

;)

I imagine they would be "sealed" at least until the panels blew off.  In context, "sealed" might merely mean that they are not left open to the atmosphere inside the tank as with the Leopard 2 racks.

A different project is dealing with that, as well as 3rd gen hydrogas suspension
