  1. Found that its the same as the M3A1 90mm gun. L/53. Thanks
  2. Can anyone tell me the caliber of the M41 90mm gun that is on the M-48 Patton tank. Thanks
  3. What altitude are these typically fired? TIA
  4. Hello, I'm looking to understand how unguided wing rockets are fired off aircraft to ground targets. Can they be fired individually or just in full salvo? Most appreciated.
  5. I appreciate all the input. My goal was just to better understand the different AFV protection systems that didn't include mobility and armor. There could be a valid argument that ERA is a type of APS. I initially left it off the list but am rethinking maybe it should be included... My understanding of categorizing APS. Softkill - Systems that alerts/disrupts an imminent attack on an AFV Hardkill - Systems that actively stops/destroys imminent attack on an AFV All comments welcomed. Most appreciated.
  6. The Radio freq jammers is a great catch.

  8. Zuk - Yes, I'm looking to better understand what the option are for AFV. Maybe consolidate a list.... SSnake - Agree that all components would be linked to other systems to make an effective defense. I'm just trying to better educate myself on these. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- List Sensor Laser detection IR detection Softkill Multi-Spectral Smoke IR / Visible light disrupters (laser dazzlers) Hardkill Akkor Active Protection System (Turkey) GL5 Active Protection System (China) AMAP-ADS Active Protection System (Germany) Arena active protection system (Russia) Drozd active protection system (Russia) Iron Curtain active protection system (United States) Iron Fist active protection system (Israel) LEDS active protection system (Sweden/South Africa) Quick Kill active protection system (United States) Trophy active protection system (Israel) Zaslon Active Protection System (Ukraine) Sarab Active Protection System (Syria) Any other???

  9. Hello to all and Happy New Year!!! I have a question related to AFV protection systems. Specifically how many can be on one vehicle? Items like Laser detection units Dazzlers IR Jammers hard kill systems like Arena, Drozd, Trophy etc other? Trying to better understand AFV protection that is more than Armor, ERA and mobility. Most appreciated. ---Kenny
  10. Hello, The QF 20 pdr tank gun was developed in 1948. What was the name and dates of introduction for the various ammo it used? I have the following Mk1 APDS 1947 Mk3 APDS 1950 Mk4 APDS 1955 unknown APCBC round unknown HE round unknown canister round Does this look right? Thank in advance. ---Kenny
  11. Bojan for the win!! Thanks. Any ideas on date of introduction?? Most appreciated. ---Kenny
  12. Alrighty then... I hope and pray this NEVER goes away. It's a great resource for research and asking hard to find question!! Thank you to all the selfless folks who make this site possible! Stay safe and healthy! ---Kenny
  13. Apologies if this has already been asked... But why can't I search topics and threads? I hate to as questions that have already been answered. TIA --Kenny
  14. Hello, my google-fu failed me, so I humbly come to ask the great collective. <smile> Can someone help me 1) confirm this exists 2) have the technical specs? I've been reading several books on Egypt military in the 1950s and there are references to this AAG but that's all I find. Thank you. ---Kenny
  15. Thank you all. Give me a "good enough" reference point. Jay - I found this UK House of Commons document discussing captured Egyptian equipment by the British after the 1956 Suez Crisis. It list the Belgium version found in Egypt in 56. “Egypt (Captured Equipment).” Hansard, UK Parliment, hansard.parliament.uk/Commons/1956-11-21/debates/73411468-cda5-4aeb-ad30-487d0e1b7f2a/Egypt (CapturedEquipment). Most appreciated --Kenny
