Is there somewhere a comparison with the IMI Namer specs ?

Is it a manned turret? It isn't clear from the picture. The IFV variant uses unmanned.

Does it? I thought the KF41 turret is manned.

The Lynx 120 turret looks to be manned as well -- you can see vision blocks and what looks like hinged hatches behind the gunner's sight and to the right of the main gun.

Sorry, that one definitely is...there is a different version that they were going to submit to the US army that used an unmanned turret.

I wonder if the 120mm uses an autoloader?

Yeah, I thought so. OMFV needs a remote turret since in theory the whole vehicle could be uncrewed. (I'm still unclear on how an uncrewed IFV works, but hey, not my program...)

They don't say, but I think it must. The two hatches in the turret roof are pushed pretty far forward and there's no hatch for a third crewmember.
