Members Retro Posted October 31, 2022 Members Share Posted October 31, 2022 'Ajax' as in the Ajax vehicle family that is.. it was supposed to go into use in 2017 (with 500+ vehicles on order by the UK MOD!), but now I read that [quote]In June 2021 it was revealed that trials of Ajax variants were halted from November 2020 to March 2021 due to excessive vibration and noise, leaving crews suffering from nausea, swollen joints and tinnitus. Test crews were then limited to 105 minutes inside and 20 miles per hour (32 km/h). The excessive vibration while moving was also damaging electronic systems and preventing armament from stabilising. Suspension issues on the Ajax variant meant turrets could not fire while moving[/quote] Given that this is using the Ulan/Pizarro hull, how can that be? TBH I never gave much thought about such 'pedestrian' design issues in tracked vehicles like ride comfort, but I surely thought things such as this would be understood by now (especially if using a proven hull)? 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
