    So it is their Chapparal... a ground launched sidewinder based on the upgraded version of a Soviet copy of the weapon...

    I suppose it is a useful way of using existing stocks.... they likely have quite a few missiles...

    Probably wouldn't be very good for the lighter drones that likely wont have enough of an IR signature for a lock, but cruise missiles and of course helicopters and low flying aircraft would be good targets for such a system.

    They could adapt it to fire R-60MKs and R-73s too over time...

    14 tons is quite meaty and damn good for a vehicle in this category and that winch in the front is doing wonders for appearance thumbsup

    M-20 MRAP 6x6

    Unlike other stuff lately this is budget version troop carrier, idea is to buy them in bulk to finally stop moving soldiers in soft skinned vehicles

    French approach to layout and it's based on dirt cheap local truck FAP-2026 which pretty much translates to ''bottomless pit of spare parts''

    M 20 is really good news, hope we will make them in large numbers, more than thousand units. We need a lot of them...and larger army, for sure. I like the way they want to modernize our M-84's...if there is a possibility to return some of those 150 sitting in Kuwait...well, I can dream a bit. Very Happy

    I've heard there will be a re-organisation in our Army, maybe they finally decided to change this British brigade organisation, which is more a problem, than solution for our Army. Neutral

    Considering it's based on FAP truck it shouldn't be a problem at all, if there is anything that we can reliably make in insane numbers it's that thing Cool



    littlerabbit wrote:We need a lot of them

    That we definitely do

    I always get disgusted whenever I read about wars in the 90s and learn the number of men we lost in idiotic ambushes on tarp covered trucks and other soft-skinned junk, we lost more men to that to than enemy artillery, it's criminal stupidity

    This is why I hate when people shit talk MRAPs, those are best military inventions since AK-47



    littlerabbit wrote:...and larger army, for sure.

    As long as we keep buying fresh gear enlarging the Army will not be difficult if need arises

    We finally have full setup for military vehicles: upgrades for tanks and IFVs, Lazar and Milos as upper tier MRAPs, M-20 for basic transportation and Zastava trucks for general logistics

    All that is left is to get a lot of it



    littlerabbit wrote:I like the way they want to modernize our M-84's...if there is a possibility to return some of those 150 sitting in Kuwait...well, I can dream a bit. Very Happy

    Kuwait is still using them and are enjoying them quite a lot

    But if they ever decide to get something "better" and replace them we should definitely ask if we can buy them back

    Then again I wouldn't be surprised if they also ask to buy some of those fresh upgrades should we finally get them in production

    The M-20 MRAP is a good idea...could've been done earlier perhaps

    On the M-84 upgrade
