  2. The C2 Ariete MBT has been developed at the end of Cold War, to replace Leopard 1 and M60. After an initial offer, Italy decided to achieve the development of a battle tank by financing its industries. The main armament of the C2 Ariete is a 120 mm smooth-bore cannon, which is able to fire APFSDS-T (Armor-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabot Tracer) and HEAT (High-Explosive Anti-Tank). The MRS (Muzzle Reference System) system is also present on the muzzle (on the end of the barrel). There are 8 GALIX launchers for 80 mm smoke bombs (4 per side of the turret) capable of firing FUM-B grenades which generate an effective smoke screen both in the visible and in the IR. The front and side armor of Ariete is made of steel and composite materials; the turret is built with the same technique as the hull and has, on top, additional armor to protect the crew from missiles with a high profile flight path. The C2 Ariete is equipped with the TURMS OG-I4 L3 system by Galilelo Avionica (periscopes, COSMO MP501, meteorological and ballistic sensors, gyroscopic device, MRS, coaxial auxiliary telescope).

    This is a little piece of art! I love how you manage to insert so many functions in a very small build. Also I appreciated the use of classic fireman minifigures!
  8. The Type 10 (TK-X) is an advanced fourth-generation main battle tank (MBT) for the Japan Ground Self Defence Force (JGSDF). Main armament of the Type 10 MBT consists of a 120mm L44 smooth-bore gun. On each side of the turret is fitted a bank of electrically operated smoke grenade launchers that are coupled to the warning laser system. The hull and the turret are of all-welded steel amour including nano-crystal steel and fourth generation of modular ceramic composite armor which provides protection against rocket propelled grenade (RPG) rounds, HEAT projectiles, and anti-tank missiles. The add-on armour modules can be easily removed and installed to add/remove protection levels. The Type 10 MBT is powered by diesel engines producing 1200 hp. The Type 10 is also fitted with an Hydropneumatic Active Suspension which allows the driver to lower and raised the overall height of the vehicle to suit the tactical situation. The suspension can be also adjusted on the left or right and front or rear. The Type 10 MBT can run at a maximum speed of 70 km/h. Standard equipment of the Type 10 MBT includes automated fire suppression systems, NBC (Nuclear, Bacteriological and Chemical) protection, C4I (command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence) system, night-vision cameras and laser warning systems. The C4I system allows the tank to communicate and share information with other tanks in the GSDF network. The intelligence C4I system also enables the MBT to work together with the troops in the infantry's outdoor computer network, Regiment Command Control System (ReCS) during integrated combat operations.The Type 10 MBT is also fitted with a computerized fire-control system (FCS) that enable the vehicle to engage stationary and moving targets while the vehicle is stopped or moving. The Type 10 MBT is fitted with a digital battlefield management system (BMS) that provides increased situational awareness by displaying the required information.

  9. The Martian rover "Pilgrim" is a heavy multi-role vehicle designed for deep exploration of Mars, built by the Lego Space Agency, it has unique characteristics. is an AWD rover equipped with an efficient suspension system, designed for a crew of 2 or 3 astronauts, who can access or descend through a pressurization chamber, in fact the internal cabin has its own pressurized atmosphere compared to the Martian atmosphere outside the vehicle. The rover is powered by fuel cells, batteries and high efficiency photovoltaic panels, guaranteeing a theoretically unlimited autonomy. The rover is equipped with a telescopic arm for collecting materials that are deposited in an independent container. Also on the front there is a second and smaller telescopic arm, with a digging, extracting and study function. Still on the front we find a useful winch, just in case. This rover has a wide range of tools for the analysis of the Martian soil and for communications: in front of it we find a photopolarimeter, a magnetometer, a composite infrared spectometer. On the upper part we find a UHD color / infrared close range camera, an radiation assessment detector, antennas for long and short frequency communications, satellite dish, a UHD color / infrared long range camera, and an atmospheric / meteorology package. Finally, the rover also has a rear tow hitch to allow the hooking of special trailers.

  10. Merkava MK4 M is a Merkava Mark IV equipped with the Trophy active protection system (APS). It detect the location that the projectile came from. It can transmit the coordinates to nearby ground and air units through the Tzayad battlefield management system. It has removable modular armor, from the Merkava Mark IIID, is used on all sides, including the top and a V-shaped belly armor pack for the underside. This modular system is designed to allow for damaged tanks to be rapidly repaired and returned to the field. Because rear armor is thinner, chains with iron balls are attached in order to detonate projectiles before they hit the main armored hull. Some features, such as hull shaping, exterior non-reflective paints (radar cross-section reduction), and shielding for engine heat plumes mixing with air particles (reduced infrared signature) to confuse enemy thermal imagers, were carried over from the IAI Lavi program of the Israeli Air Force to make the tank harder to spot by heat sensors and radar. The Mark IV includes the larger 120 mm main gun of the previous versions, but can fire a wider variety of ammunition, including HEAT and sabot rounds like the APFSDS kinetic energy penetrator, using an electrical semi-automatic revolving magazine for 10 rounds. It also includes a much larger 12.7 mm machine gun for anti-vehicle operations. The Mark IV has the Israeli-designed "TSAWS (Tracks, Springs, and Wheels System)". The model has a new fire-control system, the El-Op Knight Mark 4. It has an Amcoram LWS-2 laser warning receiver, it also has The tank carries the Israeli Elbit Systems BMS (Battle Management System).

  11. The K2 is a South Korean main battle tank. Developed as modern main battle tank that will replace most of the remaining M48 Patton tanks and complement the K1 series. The K2 Black Panther combines an auto-loaded 55 calibre 120 mm main gun, advanced composite armour along with hard and soft-kill active protection systems. The K2 is equipped with an advanced fire-control system (FCS) linked to an Extremely High Frequency radar system deployed on the frontal arc of the turret, along with a traditional laser rangefinder and crosswind sensor. The system is capable of a "lock-on" mode, which can acquire and track specific targets up to a range of 9.8 km (6.1 mi) using a thermographic camera. This allows the crew to fire accurately while moving as well as engage low-flying aircraft.The Korean Gunner's Primary Sight (KGPS) and the Korean Commander's Panoramic Sight (KCPS) are present in the Black Panther. The Korean Smart Top-Attack Munition (KSTAM) is a fire-and-forget, top-attack anti-tank munition. The K2 Tank has Visual and Infrared Screening Smoke (VIRSS) grenadesRadar Warning Receiver (RWR) and radar jammer. Four all-bearing Laser warning receivers (LWR) are also present to alert the crew should the vehicle become "painted", and the computer can also deploy VIRSS grenades towards the direction of the beam.The K2 houses the following features which help to improve situational awareness for the crew.
