Die Silhouette des neuen Panzerfahrzeugs von Patria erinnert an den alten Sisu Pasi.

Da dieses Fahrzeug in der Fahrzeugfront (!) zwei Jetantriebe verbaut hat, würde ich sagen: Ja.
Eine amphibische Landungsoperation mit einem leicht bewaffneten Fahrzeug dieser Bauart, bei feindlichem Beschuss von der Küste aus, wäre doch das reinste Himmelfahrtskommando.
Wobei eine Drehung um 180° für ein Kettenfahrzeug jetzt nicht die große Herausforderung darstellt. Das ist eine Frage von Sekunden und bei einer entsprechenden Waffenstation auch ohne Auswirkung auf die eigene Feindwirkung.
Eurosatory 2018: Franco-German industry unveils new Euro tank
French and German industry have unexpectedly unveiled a new Euro Main Battle Tank (EMBT) concept at Eurosatory, their first attempt at combining national technologies to develop a next-generation pan-European tank.
The EMBT has been developed by KNDS – a joint company between German Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and French company Nexter – and combines a Leopard 2 chassis with a Leclerc 120mm turret.
Officials from KNDS told Shephard that the development effort has been ongoing since January 2017, with the prototype platform conducting live fire trials only a month ago.
‘This is the first step in having a common product from Nexter and KMW,’ said Rudolf Neuhaus, project manager for EMBT for KMW. ‘This is a demonstrator but the next step will be to have a prototype or pre-series production.’
‘It is a way of showing that we are now working together,’ said Francois Groshany, Nexter’s head of tracked armoured programmes.
He added that because the Leclerc features a lighter autoloading turret, compared with the manually loaded Leopard 2, the EMBT is lighter and has a growth potential of around 6t (10% of the EMBT's 60t GVW).
This effort has been funded by KNDS and is not a German or French government programme.
https://www.shephardmedia.com/news/land ... veils-new/For the EMBT, one of the main challenges has been to integrate the electronic and mechanical interfaces between the turret and chassis. ‘It was not easy…there was a lot of engineering effort on the chassis side,’ said Neuhaus, speaking to Shephard at Eurosatory.
The chassis is based on the latest A7 variant of the Leopard 2, with mobility trials also complete with the Leclerc turret integrated.
He added that this was, for the time being, the limit as to how much technology can be shared between the two countries, owing to German legislation. ‘This is the limit that we can go …due to German law we cannot exchange technologies.’
Eurosatory 2018: Patria 6X6 - Multifunctional transport capacity far into the future
The chassis structure is based on the same components as the AMV, but with one less axle. The vehicle is driven by all three axles and steered from the front two, or all three, depending on its equipage. Optional equipage can be added to bring the 6X6 closer to the AMV.
https://www.patria.fi/en/media/news/eur ... far-futureThe 6X6 has a maximum load-bearing capacity of 8.5 tonnes. The protection of the armoured 6X6 reaches STANAG level 4, which means protection against even heavy machine gun fire. Due to the 6x6’s good load carrying capacity, it has better protection than previous Pasi APCs. Its mine protection is top-notch, even at the basic level, but up to 10 kilos of mine protection can be achieved.
Die Neuauflage eines 35 Jahre alten Designs. Ich bin wenig beeindruckt.
