Great magazine as always. Yes @ECLIPS_Eng is not planning to Prime #Land8140 #Deployed #Force #Infrastructure (#DFI). Our focus is firmly on #Land8120 Engineer Support Platforms, our main effort.
Appreciate the calls of relief from our competitors who had us down as the #No1 to beat in their Black Hat reviews! Image
Who do I think are bidding L8140 DFI as Primes: #Babcock, #Broadspectrum, #KBR, #GDS, #SAAB, #Varley. @Melissa4Durack and @lindareynoldswa have shown clearly that they are serious about #AIC, regional and SME. @ECLIPS_Eng main effort remains #L8120. Good luck to Oz SME Primes! Image

Tank gets destroyed and people cry it’s the end of the tank. Hundreds of infantry get killed and we celebrate their lives. No one asks if the days of sending in poorly protected infantry are over? Lots of UAV get destroyed and no one claims the end of UAV. What is it about tank?
Why is the tank constantly the weapon system in the cross hairs when it comes to budgets or the end is coming. These tanks do not reflect basic TTP. Any miss employed system with poorly trained crews will fail!
Poorly protected, maintained for too long, no upgrades are a death trap! Why do people keeping weapons systems that are clearly obsolete and beyond their life of type.

What is the platform for close reconnaissance in conventional operations high intensity battlegroups? Image
Great Medium Reconnaissance capability but not Formation or Close Reconnaissance. Image
Is this the real future of Formation and Close Reconnaissance? @sheldonsmiths @strategic_tank @EliLea1 @nicholadrummond @ODowcett @gunner_schmulke @thepagey Image

Lots of discussion about MBT, IFV, JLTV, and vehicles getting bigger for protection. AJAX is big as well so what is the future of Formation Reconnaissance and Close Reconnaissance? Image
Is the future going to be robotic and autonomous, or is there now a need for a new class of reconnaissance vehicles? Image
Should we be considering Formation Reconnaissance as the place of the Boxer CRV or is Boxer CRV the wheeled IFV of the future to compliment the future Heavy IFV? Image

Too much talk about #tanks this week @nicholadrummond . Time for a new topic, what is the best infantry fighting vehicle pack? Can anything beat the turtle @thinkdefence . What work are you doing on this @thepagey . Overloaded infantry with big packs will not fit in modern IFV. Image
@2805662 have you seen anything that is setting a new benchmark? @Foliohat how big have the Finish packs got? What is the Russian gear like for packs and AFV @gunner_schmulke ?
Is there a pick that works well with vehicle and has utility in a dismounted role?@MAGTravF has the USMC stopped trying to do the one size fits all pack (ALICE my back still hurts). @lachlan_poppins anything interesting from Rheinmetall? Image

I just found a photo on the net of the 1983 FMC offer for Project Waler which was the last time the @AustralianArmy tried to purchase 800-1000 IFV. @EliLea1 @aussie_tanker @strategic_tank @thepagey image where we would be now if RAAC ego had not got in the way of Mechanization! Image
Are there lessons to be learned as we buy the most effective, highly protected and capable wheeled IFV in the world the @boxercrv ! Image
With the @lynxifv on the world stage, and the #hanwha IFV about to be unveiled is it time for the SoArmd to no longer be the Chief Instructor for Mech/Armd Inf, Eng, Arty and RAEME? Image

#miltwitter I don't want to ask @DTRmag @austdefence @andrewmagoo19 @KZiesing @DefenceConnect as they will suggest that advertising works! I want to understand from the #audience how much influence on your decisions advertising has? Suggestions appreciated as to what works best!
Can’t believe “ a little “ is scoring so well @thinkdefence ! I thought you were the only twitter account other then @MelanieRovery and @Sam_Cranny that anyone followed! Apparently @DTRmag is very popular? Image
Good news for @DTRmag @austdefence @andrewmagoo19 @KZiesing @DefenceConnect @JanesINTEL the survey and feedback suggests you are right and Advertising helps, a little! It also reinforces the importance of communications. COVID presents new comms challenges, online conventions??? Image
