That Trophy setup for the Abrams definitely isn't as elegant as the setup on the Merkava. Why not remove the stowage bins on the side and move it in a bit closer?

It looks like it is going to get eaten by lots of trees.

Self camouflaging. ;)

AUSA 2017: SAIC partnership to compete for MPF contract

8th October 2017 - 01:10 GMT | by Alice Budge in London

RSS

Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has announced it will develop combat vehicle prototypes to meet the US Army’s Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF) requirement.

 

The announcement on 5 October will see SAIC partner with ST Kinetics and CMI Defence to compete for an Engineering and Development (EMD) contract to build prototypes for the MPF programme.

 

The new partnership will work to rapidly develop a lightweight vehicle solution solution that ‘integrates mature, currently produced offerings from our industry partners,’ according to Jim Scanlon, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Customer Group, in a company statement.

 

According to Scanlon, SAIC will utilise ST Kinetics’ Next Generation Armoured Fighting Vehicle (NGAFV) chassis with CMI Defence’s Cockerill series 3105 turret to produce a vehicle that will give ‘soldiers a new capability in combat environments’.

 

The vehicle will be designed to meet the Army’s requirements that call for freedom of movement and action in urban operations and is tailorable for full-spectrum combat environments.

 

ST Kinetics’ NGAFV is fully digitalised, highly mobile and has been developed to support networked knowledge-based warfighting, according to Lee Shiang Long, president of ST Kinetics.

 

He added that seven prototypes have already been developed and tested and will soon be in production.

 

General Dynamics Land Systems and BAE Systems have both invested in prototypes for MPF over the last two years, with a predicted production requirement of around 500 for the US Army programme as well as considerable international export potential.

It will be a miracle if this programs actually leads to a viable product. The smell of the FCS is still lingering.

That M1 needs a touch-up paint job.  All that advertising should be on a sign.

That was one cool-looking little scooter. Matter of fact, I had a toy based of this vehicle when I was a kid. :)

"US Aggression Tank M-4A3

  
 
It was equipped with a new type of mover that was designed and manufactured by Ford Corporation of the United States, and a strong anti-tanks of England. It was quick and powerful as a tundish compared to other tanks, and was used as a main land in the Combined Forces of World War II.
   
At the end of November, 1950, the 15th Infantry Division of the Korean People's Army, the 45th Daejeon Luwon, destroyed the anti-land mines when the 3th Infantry Division was destroyed in Yangdeok-mae-ri."
