THE BEAR AWAKENS
Despite the country’s recent economic woes, Russia’s land forces are pressing ahead with a broad range of equipment modernisation programmes.
A fresh generation of armoured fighting vehicles is equipping Europe’s armies, with a raft of new types and models entering service or in development.
LWI rounds up recent acquisition and technology developments from the vibrant global assault rifle procurement market.
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
Western night vision technology is having to adapt rapidly to keep ahead of parallel developments in countries such as Russia in China.
KEEPING UP THE PRESSURE
Ensuring damage to a wheel or tyre does not result in extremely costly chassis repairs or leaves an armoured vehicle stranded in the middle of a combat zone is a key challenge for specialist engineering companies.
With unmanned turrets capable of mounting large-calibre weapons now a reality, the pros and cons of crewed versus un-crewed weapon stations are being hotly debated by industry and militaries alike.
The South African-based Paramount Group has established itself as one of the largest defence companies in Africa. In anticipation of the Africa Aerospace & Defence exhibition in September, LWI talked to executive chairman Ivor Ichikowitz about his vision for the future.
