    The Rarden cannon uses a manually fed 3 round clip of ammunition.... commonality with rounds for the MRVs (not sure)?

    They wouldn’t have much life in them either. The U.K. upgraded 50 Scimitars to Mk2 around 2011 (Scimitar turret on Spartan chassis and upgrades in many systems). Some of these may have subsequently been sold to Latvia

    Only if they have been refitted with a bushmaster.
    Otherwise, they are only good for airsoft and paintball.
    For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.

    • Probably not. The gospel of "wheels good, tracks bad" is ingrained in the DF so that thou shalt not play with "tanks"...

          The 19 will most likely be used as a source of spare parts for the remaining fleet.

              I notice it has no metric relating to the condition of the crew underwear before and after those strikes...

                  Exact opposite in Ukraine now, they want more tracks die to the conditions.

                  • It appears that some Russian Missile systems are using tyres that were made over 30 years ago. Needless to say these tyres are failing.

                          • Train an excess number of Techs and specialists and pay them enough to keep them in and hands-on. Keep the bullshit to a minimum and they'll stay.
