    You suggested keeping the current support company two posts ago, so I would have thought you'd have a point. Again, the army is not going to buy enough APC's to warrant a change in all battalions.

    Suggest a better structure than the BA's if you're not sure about it.

      Here's an internal pic of a Mowag mounting the RO turreted mortar. It's got a crew of four and carries 60 rounds. As you can see, there's no room for anything or anyone else:

          I assume each of those bombs must be loaded into the Vehicle by hand...

            Now there a job for your No.4 and 5 (Thanks Barry) if there was everone LOL! I presume they would be loaded by individuals same way you as would bomb up a GPMG belt etc one round at a time. Oh and thanks for finding this picture i asked about, its a great capture of the inside of such a carrier.

                    That's a very early version.

                      The mortar turret is a far better job.

                        I'll second that Andy the idea is bit old now and the turret offers better survaillance fit i.e laser range finder,thermals etc.. aswell over protection from MG fire etc to also covering the crew heads from the likes of air bursts of other debree or shrapnel etc...

                          Why would you put a laser range-finder or TI on an indirect fire weapon? All surveillance and target acquesition would be done by the MFC party.

                            Sorry meant Night Vision Goggles (not T.Is) and similiar for driver and for the Co-axial GPMG. I meant that these types turret could be fitted with these equipment not that they should be I was just demonstrating what such as Turret could hold i know it would most likely befitted with something like fire control computers or similiar etc..

                              Self-propelled artillery

                              Is all self-propelled artillery tracked or is there some with wheels?

                              I'm excluding direct-fire guns on tank-type turrets, etc.

                                There are wheeled SP artillery pieces (eg Giat CAESAR 155mm and a South African one called G6 I think).
