    THINGS THAT ARE NOT TANKS || WARTHOG 2018
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Jan 30, 2018
    There was a bit of confusion in the office today. What is a tank? As it turns out, many of the things that you think are tanks are, in fact, not.

    What you need to know is that what makes a tank a tank is not what the thing looks like, but how it’s built and what it’s built to do.

    To explain what I mean, here are some things that are not tanks:

    Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound.

    Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    The Universal Engineer Tractor: A High Speed Tracked Vehicle with Low Speed, High Drawbar Performance

    http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/...

    "The U. S. Army is presently developing an unusual tracked vehicle--the Universal Engineer Tractor. It is suitable for use as a bulldozer, scraper, rough grader, prime mover, dump truck, cargo carrier, and armor-protected personnel carrier. Its design features a hydropneumatic suspension system, a high speed-high drawbar track, a special broad range transmission system, the use of lightweight materials, a front scraper bowl with positive type ejection, and a flat track suspension with rear drive sprockets."

    OFF ROAD CV90 Military vehicle for Infantry great idea for US Military
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Feb 1, 2018
    The Combat Vehicle 90 (CV90; Sw. Stridsfordon 90, Strf90) is a family of Swedish tracked combat vehicles designed by FMV, Hägglunds (BAE Systems Hägglunds) and Bofors during the mid-1980s and early 1990s and entered service in Sweden in the mid-90s. The CV90 platform design has continuously evolved in steps from Mk0 to current MkIV with advances in technology and in response to changing battlefield requirements. The Swedish version of the main infantry fighting vehicle is fitted with a turret from Bofors that is equipped with a 40 mm autocannon. Export versions are fitted with BAE Systems Hägglunds E-series turret with 30 mm and 35 mm autocannons. Developed specifically for the Nordic sub-arctic climate, the vehicle has very good mobility in snow and wetlands while carrying and supporting eight and six fully equipped dismount soldiers. Other variants include Forward Observation, Command and control, Anti-air, Armoured Recovery, Electronic Warfare and so forth. The CV90 and Hägglunds E-series turrets has been under continuous development with more than 4 million hours invested and are still produced with modern protection, armament and network enabled solutions. Currently 1280 vehicles in 15 variants are in service with 7 user nations, 4 members of NATO under BAE Systems Hägglunds AB.

    Design[edit]
    Various customer requirements have led to several variants of the CV90, where major differences are in survivability and electronic architecture. Higher protection has led to higher kerb weight; the vehicle's combat weight has risen from 23 to 35 tonnes. However, with increasingly more powerful diesel engines, the power-to-weight ratio has remained approximately the same. The track suspension system has seen upgrades in several stages. The Mk III version has a digital electronic architecture with several different CAN-buses and digital networks, and is the first IFV incorporating an automatic Defensive Aid Suite (DAS), which classifies threats and, in automatic mode, can fire smoke and/or the main gun to eliminate or evade targets as well as instruct the driver. At the Eurosatory 2010 exhibition, a version called Armadillo[3] was presented. The Armadillo shown was an Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) version. The basic chassis can be readily converted to ambulance, control vehicle or other turreted versions.

    Here's the U.S. Army's Plan for a Large and More Deadly Bradley Fighting Vehicle
    US Defense News



    Published on Jan 31, 2018
    The U.S. Army is in the process of upgrading its Bradley Fighting Vehicles to give them the power necessary to run new networked communications and other systems, as well as make sure they remain just as capable despite the growing weight thanks to new equipment and other upgraded gear. At the same time, the service is already looking at new proposals for even more dramatic changes to the fleet, including a larger hull, new weapons, and additional sensors.

    Shephard got the scoop on the Army’s plans and detail the various configurations they are considering for a notional M2A5 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle on Jan. 29, 2018. The goal is to have a first unit equipped with the revised armored vehicles by the beginning of 2026. At present, the service already has approximately $600 million with which to fund both development and the initial purchases of the upgrade components, but this could increase as the Pentagon looks to significant grow its budgets across the board in the 2019 fiscal cycle.

    GERMANY’S LEOPARD 2 TANK WAS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BEST (UNTIL IT WENT TO SYRIA) || WARTHOG 2018
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Feb 2, 2018
    Germany’s Leopard 2 main battle tank has a reputation as one of the finest in the world, competing for that distinction with proven designs such as the American M1 Abrams and the British Challenger 2. However, that reputation for nigh-invincibility has faced setbacks on Syrian battlefields, and placed Berlin in a uniquely awkward national-level dispute with Turkey, its fellow NATO member.

    Canada wants to sell Leopard 1 Tanks!
    Matsimus



    Published on Feb 5, 2018
    Captain Scott Franklin, with the office of the Director Land Requirements, pointed out in a Jan. 23 article on the Army’s website that with the delivery of the new Leopard 2 Tank Mobility Implements in the fall of 2017, the last of the Army’s Leopard 1 tanks have been parked for good.

    So what happens with those tanks?

    Department of National Defence spokesman Daniel Le Bouthillier explained to what might happen with the surplus Leopard 1s:

    “The Department of National Defence has a formal process for disposing of surplus Canadian Armed Forces equipment. Once DND and the CAF has declared equipment surplus, a disposal plan is written that describes the preparatory steps that are to be performed, and describes the strategies for its removal from the DND system of record. The disposal plan assesses options, including retention, for alternate use within DND and the CAF (e.g. for training or display purposes), transfer to another Federal Government organization, sale, donation, or conversion to waste.

    In the case of the Leopard 1 family of vehicles, there are 52 remaining Leopard 1C2 Main Battle Tanks, and 5 Leopard 1 Armoured Engineering Vehicles remaining. They will remain in place until a disposal mechanism is selected. They are currently distributed in Edmonton, Alberta; Montreal, Quebec; and, Gagetown, New Brunswick. The first option would be to sell the tanks. Any revenue generating option for the government is encouraged. The tanks were listed for sale since 31 Aug 2015. While there is some interest currently, there are no firm buyers. The sale is open to approved foreign nations or approved Canadian industry. The second option is to use the tanks for alternative use (hard targets, monuments/artefacts). If tanks cannot be sold, alternative applications will be sought that may bring value to the government.

    The last option would be to destroy the tanks. NO!

    Hope you enjoy!!
