    Folks,
    For those of us who have IKON. It's all there.
    For those who don't, sorry but the exact details are not for public discussion just yet.However lets just say that with the upgrade the only original parts will be the hulls.

    The new,old, cars will be a massive improvement and will greatly enhance the situational awareness and force protection of the crews and dismounts

    Quite a lot, considering each car only cost over Ä1m.

    I see the CoS posted some photos of the Mowag upgrades on twitter earlier. The "minister" and he are in Switzerland visiting GD Land systems.
    Earlier this week they were visiting Pilatus.

    It certainly appears to be. In fact it looks very much like the version seen recently at Eurostatory, with a Javelin mount alongside the main gun armament.

    The new Dual RWS is for 12.7 HMG and 7.62 MAG, giving the same firepower as the old turret its replacing.
