According to pictures released on social networks, the Israeli army has learned from the experiences of the Ukrainian conflict. The turret roofs of Merkava 4 tanks are now equipped with a "Cope Cage" or "Protective Canopy." This type of armor is designed to offer protection against aerial attacks, such as drones and loitering munitions.

Raytheon has been awarded a contract by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop an innovative air-breathing propulsion system known as the Gambit program. This program aims to harness the power of a rotating detonation engine (RDE), which promises to revolutionize missile propulsion technology. The implications of this breakthrough are far-reaching, with potential benefits for military operations across multiple branches of the armed forces.

The U.S. Army is now ready to receive the M10 Booker Fire Support Vehicle. This state-of-the-art combat machine is set to redefine battlefield dynamics with its advanced features, formidable armament, and versatile combat capabilities. This new combat vehicle was designed and developed by the American Company General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS).

The British Army is gearing up to introduce the Challenger 3, its latest Main Battle Tank, which is set to redefine modern warfare. This state-of-the-art tank will be a central component of the Heavy Brigade Combat Teams, complemented by the Ajax reconnaissance tracked armored vehicle and the Boxer 8x8 armored vehicles.

The Russian Kizlyar Electromechanical Plant has unveiled a cutting-edge automated gun control system designed to optimize ammunition detonation for maximum impact against adversaries. A significant feature of this innovative system is its capability to counteract the rising threat of drone attacks. By engineering the ammunition to calculate the ideal detonation point, the system ensures the explosion produces a vast cloud of shrapnel aimed directly at airborne targets, making it a formidable defense against drones.

In a significant stride towards the modernization of tactical power generation, the 11th Air Defense Artillery Brigade of the U.S. Army played a pivotal role in facilitating the Secure Tactical Advance Mobile Power (STAMP) operational demonstration on August 31, 2023, as reported by Capt. Ego Ekenta from the brigade's Public Affairs division.

In the ever-evolving landscape of modern warfare, the use of drones has become increasingly prevalent, posing significant threats to armored vehicles on the battlefield. Responding to this emerging challenge, Russia has unveiled its latest countermeasure, the REB "Волнорез" (Volnorez - Breakwater) electronic warfare jammers. This state-of-the-art system was first showcased and mounted on a T-80BVM Main Battle Tank (MBT) during the Russian Army Expo 2023 defense exhibition, capturing the attention of defense analysts worldwide.

Recently, Hanwha Defense Australia (HDA) brought together representatives from the Australian and South Korean industries to pitch to the Australian Army via the Robotic and Autonomous Systems  Implementation and Coordination Office (RICO) the concept for Automated Protected Logistics to the Edge. The workshop was aimed at being platform agnostic, able to go on any Army platform both now and into the future.

The TOS-1 is a fearsome rocket launcher known for its devastating firepower. Developed and manufactured by ROSTEC, the Russian state defense company, the TOS-1 has recently undergone testing with a new navigation system that promises to enhance its targeting accuracy and automate geodetic calculations. Russian forces use it extensively in Ukraine to strike large Ukrainian positions.

In May 2023, the HYDIS² consortium, composed of 19 partners and more than 20 subcontractors across 14 European countries, submitted a proposal for a concept architecture and technology maturation study of an endo-atmospheric interceptor against new high-end emerging threats, in the framework of the European Defence Fund 2023 work programme. On the 12th of July 2023, following a positive evaluation, the European Commission proposed the project for funding.
