Is there a procedure for decoupling the drivetrain when towing for extended distances, or can they just be towed in "neutral"?

You can tow in neutral for shorter distances. For longer distances you can disconnect the drive sprockets from the transmission through a hole in the drive sprocket assembly. I think it was demonstrated in the recent Leo1 video from Bovington Tank Museum.

As our just announced defense plan is all-round self-defense without NATO (-> Zrínyi 2026), it looks like we buy 200 Pumas to accompany the Leopards.

Make ready to buy A400M as well, otherwise the Puma makes not too much sense.

 

 

Maybe the multinational A400 unit in Bavaria?

Cannot be the brakes as those are at the drive sprocket.

 

I think it is a bearing failure. Most probably the seal between the hub cap and the idler wheel failed, the roller bearing inside lost its oil and got hot igniting the oil that leaked out.

 

 

Not hard to replace the complete idler wheel. So pull up the heavy side skirts and get to work, Panzermänner.

Samples arrived for the Hungarian Army Day (21. May) show (with photos)

 

One-one 2A4, 2A7+, Pzh 2000, Panzerschnellbrücke 2, Bergepanzer 3 arrived for the show. The 2A4 is an Austrian tank (21 May is the anniversary of taking back Buda from the Austrians in 1849), and it was the only one moving on tracks after arriving :ph34r: It was driven by the Ausrian crew, who promptly installed an FN MAG machine gun on it. It washed, and was parked side to side to a T-72 named Thor.

 

Polaris buggies and Humvees arrived, too. On the weekend the visitors can look at the new personal weapons (license-built P-07, P-09, BREN 2, Scorpion EVO 3), Mi-2 and Yak-52, special forces show, and the old T-72s.

Does the Hungarian army wear the DPM crossed with Multicam that the British Army rejected? ;)

 

Interesting Leo2 configuration, with a changed CRBN protection system inlets on the side and the modified rear top deck. And I htink what are mounitngs for additional armour.

 

that dark painted H145M LUH SOF is from the HSG64 in Laupheim. The special helicopters of the Luftwaffe.

 

 

What are those "Honved Kadets"? Paramilitary youth organisation like in socialist times?

 

 

 

 

 

random hungary stronk video:

 

 

shows the mix of soviet leftovers and a the newer additions.

That big field cap really looks like a certain bohemian soldier. ;)

 

some good shots of the Austrian Leopard 2 A4Ö (formerly NL) with all the fancy shelving on the sides. that's new. How much luggage are the Austrians loading on their Leos?

Honvéd kadét means a 14-18 year old, who is learning in a high school (ISCED level 3) which makes them ready to continue learning in the NCO or Officer schools of the Army, o , following another short course, work in public service.

 

It is influenced by the 150 year old UK cadet system.

Reminds me of the military education classes and military training organisations that were usual in the former warsaw treaty states. But I guess the commies took inspiration from the UK.
