Although both are offering new production tanks to customers in the Middle East, most of the sales in recent years have been those of excess inventory tanks, the most recent were deliveries to Indonesia. Various modifications and upgrades are displayed at Eurosatory, introducing enhanced protection, optronics, command and control, among other changes.

The vehicle also uses an enhanceddriveline, suspension, larger tires and more pozerful engine, providing better mobility and payload capability. It features better protection with the double hull design already implemented with US Army vehicles.

 

The autonomous gun system turret developed by KMW is displayed here at Eurosatory 2014 on the Boxer chassis. This is the first public appearance of this configuration, which seems to carry the Boxer to the extreme. The AGM offers fully autonomous operation of the 155 /52 Cal artillery unit, controlled by the crew seated in the front section of the vehicle. Other configurations provide more spacious cabins for the crew.

The PMMC G5 vehicle developed by FFG is one of four contenders bidding for a Danish M-113 replacement program expected to be finalized by the autumn of 2014. The G5 is based on the M-113, but replaces most of the original vehicles’ parts and aluminum hull with steel made elements. The vehicle is fitted with more spacious driver’s position fitted with actual windows, offering the driver full autonomy in driving and maneuvering the vehicle. The G5 offers high blast and mine protection, and comes with modular armor design that can match different threat levels. The manufacturer claims the acquisition cost of those vehicles would be the lowest of all options offered for the Danes, while the life cycle cost would also be lowest, due to the simplicity and robustness of the design.
RAFAEL is displaying at Eurosatory eight different weapon stations, one of those shown in the static outdoor area is the new Samson 30 mm turret, mounting an automatic 30mm cannon and two Spike ER missiles. It is installed on a modernized BMP-2 modernized by the Czech company Excalibur. Replacing the original Russian turret saved several tons that could be 'spent' on additional armor, while clearing more space for troops and equipment inside the protected fighting compartment.
