Army Projects / Re: UK MoD Future Protected Vehicle

From last year:

Land Apache: A lightweight (13 ton) very agile platform with advanced suspension and electric drive. Equipped with long range sensors and missiles, it would exploit networking with other platforms and unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) for intelligence gathering and the defeat of threats

Urban Operations Vehicle: A medium weight (22 ton) vehicle optimised for operations in urban areas. Multi-wheel steer, long travel suspension and electric drive provide agility. Multiple sensors and weapon systems allow the simultaneous detection and engagement of threats, advanced active protection systems provide protection against rocket propelled grenades and other threats fired from short ranges. The vehicle can be fitted with a dozer blade and robotic arm for clearing rubble and barriers

Force protection unmanned vehicle: A very lightweight (2 ton), high mobility vehicle that is capable of reaching speeds of 50 mph (80 kph). Its design allows the vehicle to be configured for a range of operational requirements and sophisticated countermeasure launchers for defence.

I've attached the image of the UOV (I think) below.
A jet plane? Fighter?

May i ask for this thread to necro?
Does anyone have accees to the Romanian archives and can find information regarding the IAR.80 No 0 with the DB601? Also the IAR.81C with the DB605?

Yes, I think so too. In this design the main uc has been moved backwards, which would have required significant re-engineering of the Spiteful wing.

I'd guess that the evolution from this drawing to the final design was mostly driven by the need to save money by keeping the Spitfire-derived wing as intact as possible.  That would explain the conventional landing gear and the repositioned inlets.

Looks like it needs more tail as a butterfly-tail, but very interesting.

From the book, The BD-5 Story;

a very early concept drawing.
