    The snout was lengthened and there seems to be an additional layer of armor
    on top of the engine compartment.

    The thing is the UFP is now a good 20-30 cm higher, either that is to fit an absurd amount of composite armour for plate at such a high angle, or it is to both expand the engine compartment and add armour.

    That said with the prominence of loitering munitions perhaps very thick composites for the roves of armoured vehicles are now deemed necessary.

    Hopefully in the longer term they can adapt APS systems to detect drones and perhaps develop suites of electronics and sensors and weapons to deal with them through a combination of jammers and smoke as well as lasers to blind or destroy them physically or render them ineffective, but also allow detection and reporting of drones to other vehicles and individual soldiers so they can be aware of active threats and take precautions at the very least or countermeasures where possible.
