I've been looking at the data for the 40mm main gun. The APFSDS rounds can reportedly penetrate 140mm of RHA at 1500m. If so, that's enough to kill a T-55, frontally, and a T-72 from the sides or rear. The HEPD rounds are said to be able to punch throungh 210mm of Concrete. That's pretty legit.

Not surprisingly, my country's army is looking at buying some and upgunning Brads and Strykers with them: http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zon...n-to-its-stryker-and-bradley-armored-vehicles

40mm will be more anti personnel I think, they'll use the Milan for t-72s.

Yes I was but I enjoyed the rain. Been warm here. Being a scot i much prefer Cool climates. I think I would struggle where you live Joseph...haha. I do get a great tan though in summer. Trainers are great. Fit perfect & cushion my knees great. Enjoy running on the streets when it's dark, more peaceful. Just me & my thoughts.

Check bearing with the Directors. was very old School how they laid guns years before. All this AGLS Systems... whch they did Trials on in About 86. All new….i´m old

makes me wonder if the Gun no1s still know all this if the Technology goes tits up. Also the Gun Coverer had to know all this. Things move on i suppose.

Made in Serbia. ;) Maybe not best in the world, but you get biggest bang for the buck.

some nice Artillery pieces out there now. Just happy i never used the FH 70. The Guys in the Heavy Regiments suffered too, 39 Heavy in Sennelarger (80s) 5 Heavy Dortmund i think. M110 & M107.

RPG`s are scary things , especially if you are stuck in a noisy sardine tin with poor vision , I`d rather be 2000` above the enemy in an Apache.
Nasty and easy to use, the SANDF still use them. Still probably the best bang for buck most versatile rpg out there, only thing that comes close to it with versatility is the Carl Gustav.
