The military use of drones has grown dramatically in recent years. Unmanned aircraft of different sizes are employed in various roles. Some are employed on reconnaissance, carrying various sensors for intelligence gathering and targeting. Others carry and weapons and are used as strike platforms. Sometimes UAS are also used as ‘suicide drones’ or ‘loitering missiles,’ hitting targets of opportunity on the battlefield.

APCs and IFVs are only beginning to get additional protection and slat armor. Chief Designer of the Special Machine-Building Design Bureau (SKBM) Sergey Abdulov said at Army-2019 forum that BMP-3 IFV would soon get additional anti-cumulative bars and steel screens against RPG launchers.

For urban combat, the T-72B3 tank is equipped with a bulldozer blade, additional active protection on all its sides, and slat armor on the rear sides of the vehicle. The commander’s seat is protected by armor plates. This tank participated in the dynamic display. It did not look inferior in running capabilities to ordinary T-72 and T-90 tanks.

Published footage has unveiled the testing of a new multi-purpose 12x12 heavy chassis HTF5700HEV with a hybrid powerplant manufactured by Sanjiang Wanshan Special Vehicles Co., part of the 4th Academy of the Chinese rocket and space concern CASIC. The 4th CASIC Academy has its main specialization in the production of solid-propellant medium and short-range ballistic missile systems.

China has successfully tested a new combat system that integrates armored vehicles and drone swarms, Chinese media reported on Wednesday. This technology will allow armored troops to acquire more battlefield information and launch deadly attacks. Liu Xuanzun reports on Global Times.

As the U.S. Army drives toward its goal of modernizing the nation’s ground combat force, it must strike a balance between defining achievable near-term objectives and defining aggressive stretch goals for future increments. It is imperative that the Army, at all levels, leverage the vast expertise within DOD to define reasonable near-term goals, while at the same time defining the objectives that lie beyond that which current technology can achieve. Corey Richards and Maj. Cory Wallace explain in Army AL&T.

The U.S. Air Force deployed an unusual new system during a recent exercise: "Robot dogs" designed to enhance the situational awareness of security forces during a mission.

Army Recognition is presenting an analysis about the most modern 6x6 wheeled self-propelled howitzers in service and currently in production or ready for series production to date. A self-propelled howitzer is an artillery combat system equipped with its own propulsion system to move towards its target. The key advantage of the self-propelled artillery system over towed artillery, it can be deployed into action much faster. Currently, there are three main classes of mobile artillery systems including towed howitzer, self-propelled howitzer based on a tracked armored vehicle, and self-propelled howitzer mounted on military truck chassis or wheeled armored vehicle in 8x8 or 6x6 configurations.

The Boxer is a wheeled multirole armored vehicle that can be configured to conduct different types of missions. The vehicle is based on a modular design consisting of two main parts including the driver/engine module and the removable mission module. A bridgelayer module is available for the Boxer that can be used to lay one 14 m length bridge in less than five minutes.

According to information published by the Defense Studies blog on September 5, 2020, Thailand's Defense Technology Institute has conducted test-fires of local-made DTI-2 122mm rocket from Type 85 tracked APC (Armored Personnel Carrier and Chinese-made SR4 4x4 MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) at Royal Thai Army Artillery Center Range, Lopburi province, in August of this year.
