    Oops, sorry... Smile

    I can certainly understand the logistic advantage of commonality of engines, but if you only want vanilla icecream why go to the chocolate chip section?

    I am guessing it was either the price or the chance of local production where the American alternative was either too expensive or they were not willing to allow local production.

    If that is the case then what they really want is for the Americans to lower their prices or allow local production, so I would expect they will ask for US engines and US sights and US weapons till the Russians say no, but hoping the discussions will push the Americans to change their minds.

    If on the other hand they just asked if an American engine was possible on the chance to save a little money by using an existing spare parts pool and existing workforce trained to maintain it.

    For the Russians I suspect the point of selling their products is to sell their products and they would likely not want to have to integrate a US engine into such a design, as for most of their clients there is no requirement for US engines.

    I am surprised they are not looking at the BTR-82 for a production licence... its anti spall liner and removal of NBC liner make it more practical and of course minor things like single continuous ammo belts for the weapons and improved sighting systems and increased armour probably make it a rather better vehicle without increasing cost too much.

    That's what I think ... although the problem if the engine did not like, why? not ... but they sought to see if I could change ... for example when they are armed with MI17 rocket-Americans ...

    Here is a manufacturing license for 150 ... but not if it still continues ...

    One clarification, the BTR80 ern for the Navy, the LAV / Striker for the army ...

    I guess the Navy chose the BTR-80 over the Stryker because the BTR-80 is amphibious and the Stryker is not.

    Of course the BTR-80 is not really fully amphibious and is designed for fording rivers and lakes rather than operating in open ocean.

    AFAIK the Russian Navy is ordering a navalised version of the tracked Kurganets-25 which will be designed to operate in surf and rough sea states.

    I don't think the Russians will be exporting their new vehicle families any time soon because they will have enough on their plates just handling domestic production.

    Not if they knew ... but Colombia has a battalion of infantry in the Sinai ...



    History

    In development of the Camp David agreements of the Multinational Force of Observers director chosen by the UN general secretary, Lemon R. Hunt, on letter dated in September 1981, requested the Colombia president Julio Caesar Turbay Ayala the possibility to study about the contribution Colombia with a 500 Infantry men battalion to the foreseen military organism.

    Mission

    The Multinational Force of Peace and Observers (MFO), it is an independent mission (non dependant from the United Nations) of Peace Maintenance, created as a result of the Camp David 1978 agreements and the1979 Peace Treaty. www.mfo.org

    Activities

    Every day the Battalion Colombia meets in the morning in the Weapons Square to verify the activities to develop. There they find out that types of services and activities to develop that should be completed by means of the agenda, a valuable and opportune document for these routine events.

    Forced Skills

    This competition is the representative in the life at the MFO. It is a 20 years tradition full of fights, victories, and defeats. Highlighted with the charisma and the strength of each country, Colombia is always fighting to win, always in constant training and capable of obtaining the victory.

    13 leftist militants killed in Colombia

    At least 13 leftist militants have been killed in two separate armed clashes with the Colombian army, the Defense Ministry says.

    A Defense Ministry spokesman said that government troops killed eight militants from the National Liberation Army (ELN) during an operation in the province of Arauca and at least five rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) in the province of Meta.

    The army said the air force, navy and national police targeted an ELN camp in Arauca that was "responsible for attacks on civilians, roads and oil infrastructure in recent days."

    Security forces also arrested eight ELN militants in the operation, it said, adding there were several minors among the detainees.

    The Colombian government has been fighting with both militant groups for several years. The ELN is Colombia’s second largest rebel group.

    The Colombian government and the FARC have been engaged in peace talks in Cuba’s capital Havana since November 2012 to resolve a decades-long armed conflict.

    The FARC is Latin America’s oldest insurgent group and has been fighting the government since 1964.

    Bogota estimates that 600,000 people have been killed and more than 4.5 million others displaced due to the fighting.

    The rebel organization is thought to have around 8,000 fighters operating across a large swathe of the eastern jungles of the Andean nation.
