Do you know which aluminum alloy(s)?
As far as Im aware, this has not been released
Do you know which aluminum alloy(s)?
Weight would seem to be among the main reasons. Its also an entirely different suspension, Hostman InArm instead of Ajax's torsion bars.I'm won6ering why GD decided to reduce the number of road wheels to 6 per side on its Griffin variants of the ASCOD/Ajax? Was it a means to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle?
A bit disappointed in the BAE hp/t numbers, would like to have seen them put some more "go" in it, especially considering the monster GDLS has under their hood. But I still really like their compactness and lightness, assuming no dramatic performance deficit appears I'll definitely be pulling for the Buford to get it's due.
It has been done. Not with great fanfare and vindication for those who have espoused this for some years. Nor (to your point I think) has it been promulgated as a primary method of operation by major units (i.e. 101st Air Mech Division).It is a great article in pointing out what has not been done.
Happy to be told this is a silly suggestion, but it would seem that the Toyota Hilux is available all around the world.
Maybe the marines could just jump in with say $100,000 and buy a hilux.
Saving 150K on the Flyer prices.
the lower sensor turret is bullet trap ..bad juju.
I doubt that this is the final config. And really they will need multiple sensor turrets, on some sort of rotating system, otherwise everyone will be loading shrapnel rounds....the lower sensor turret is bullet trap ..bad juju.
The second type of AI was used for fire control, and is represented by FIRES Synchronization to Optimize Responses in Multi-Domain Operations, or FIRESTORM. Taking in the targeting data from the other AI systems, FIRESTORM automatically looks at the weapons at the Army’s disposal and recommends the best one to respond to any given threat.With the Advanced Targeting and Lethality Aided System, or ATLAS, the U.S. Army hopes to transform the way tank crews operate using artificial intelligence.

Its not anywhere near a final configuration, this is a prototype for testing the fire control system with plenty of stuff just bolted on.I doubt that this is the final config.

What kinda bullets are you worried about trapping exactly?the lower sensor turret is bullet trap ..bad juju.

Because apfsds straight up don't care about bullet traps with their auto bounce angles being so close to 90 degrees as not to matter.
And for smaller caliber stuff like you might actually worry about, a decent chunk of the cost of a sensor ball like that is the housings which are deceptively strong.
The Army could have CEC back when JH APL and company wanted the Army to join CEC back in the early 2000s.
The FCS FOOB gun is still very much around in one form or another.
Hawkeye and Brutus are both great. Realistically, with the other advances Being made as well as in consideration of the prevailing threats artillery is the proper place to focus foob stuff first.
It would be quite nice if eventually the MPF gets it too, but there's other areas that need it first.
In the interim especially for breaching Pele and Pele ALP style rounds are nearly ideal for breaching if it's called for. Especially where there is no or minimal explosives involved in the warhead.
Not clear why a 30 ton vehicle would need FOOB; the 105mm round isn't particularly "hot"
And I would think they would just scale AMP down to 105mm; PELE leaves the rebar substantially intact.
