Not seen. Are you hot linking to a picture in the subscriber section?PatrickO said:I just wanted to post a picture of a concept MMEV
Or change to a fuze that is not armed by spinning. The HESH main charge is not dependant on spin to function. The fin system could be the same one used to keep HEAT going straight once it leaves a smooth bore.Captain Sensible said:HESH requires a rifled barrel in order to make it work. Failing that, it would have to get its spin from fins,
geo said:Dunno.... was going by the workshop's work in progress parking the other day - saw a bunch of Engineer APCs in line for their turn at a rejuvenation cure. At their side were a bunch of APCs with TOW spraypainted on their rear ramp.... can mean one of 2 things - either it couldn't make it under it's own means OR vehicle destined for TOW and possibly TUA
WRT the MMEVs - thought the MMEV LAV hulls have been returned to regular service as LAVIIIs - make up for some of the war losses

considering some of the LAV III losses we've incurred, I would venture to say that we have enough "spare" turrets & chain guns to fit onto the MMEV LAV hulls.Teddy Ruxpin said:IIRC, the hulls originally destined for MMEV are now being converted to LAV RWS...but I've been wrong before.
