Not exactly unveiled, they've been trying to get it to work for the last five years or more.

I hear part of the problem was that they took a gravity-fed autoloader, but mounted it upside down to make it fit into the C-130 or some such.

A good friend of mine just told me he seen a Army low loader around Island Bridge this evening with a Mowag on the back covered with a tarpaulin and what seemed like a large turret , possible it might be a Mowag fitted with the Panhard turret or mb even one with the CMI 105mm turret.

Hi there
The turret on that thing looks very like the old French oscillating turret on the early AMXs. I thought some of them had an autoloader, like the Swedish BandKanone. Snag with that is that you are stuck with a small quantity of ready rounds and the autoloader has to be kept in first-class order to stay working.

OK now that we have new choppers and Mowags ought we now to be thinking of some new variant to support maintenance in the field of said choppers if they should ever be posted to some far flung wilderness.

Here's an example of an Aussie set up.

Is that not just an ordinary Maintenance & recovery variant?

indeed it is...did the Polish get a 30mm gun on their AMV's?

edited, yes it is the 30mm ATK MK 44 version of the 25mm bushmaster, cool, good idea of what our ones will look like

Its the AMOS twin 120mm Mortar gun turret mounted on the Patria AMV. Those automatic mortars can drop 14 rounds on the target at the same time from one system.

I am disturbed that they cannot tell an M1A1 from an M1A2. However, I have no interest in registering and advising them of the error of their ways.
