Dutch study for the fire support Boxer. Looks like it was considered as not feasible due weight and transport restrictions.

Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

Would this be useful for protection against drones? In what way? RT-60 is not really designed to fight drones and while could be used not sure how effective it would be. There are better solutions for this, like Skyranger 30 or 35, both tested on Boxer and first one even ordered by Germans. But who...

Either it should be 74 in total with 17 Squadron included or 71 without it, for 3 frontline and OCU squadron. Also OCU squadron will probably have more than just 8 planes.

Re: FV4030 Challenger 1 Main Battle Tank (1983-2001) (British Army)

Very interesting that Jordan retired them given that they did not have an equivalent replacement at size/scale. Jordan is intending to replace all CR1 with Leclercs and B1 Centauro. Thing is most of these are donations, I don't think Jordan could afford to get full replacement for all CR1 on their ...

Re: Current & Future Amphibious Capability - General Discussion

Indeed because the vehicle you posted an image off has a gross vehicle weight limit which is less that the weight which can be lifted by chinook. So you are still missing the point. So regardless of what configuration it is(gun, cab whatever) it should still be lift able by chinook. Somehow I doubt...

Both Archer and M270a2 can be moved by LCU or A400m so both could bring support also maybe both 3 Cdo and 16AA should be looking at LMV 400/600 as a replacement to Landrover WMIK Archer can not be moved by A400.
