Army Establishes Its 1st Aviation Brigade


The British Army’s first-ever aviation brigade will include Gazelle and Lynx helicopters for reconnaissance and support missions, but its main strike force will consist of AW-159 Wildcat and WAH-64D Apaches, seen here during a firepower demonstration. (BA photo)

As of April 2020, the first-ever Aviation Brigade in the British Army formed up, bringing with it a new structure, new doctrine and brand-new way of fighting.

Contemporary threats elicit a contemporary response, and the world of aviation is no different. The Brigade based on a brand-new way of fighting, which is effectively summed up in its motto: “Fly, fight, lead”.

Combining the advanced reconnaissance capabilities of the Wildcat helicopter of 1st Regiment Army Air Corps (AAC), together with the attack firepower of the Apache helicopter used by 3rd and 4th Regiment AAC, 1st Aviation Brigade is designed to unite the resources previously split between the Aviation Reconnaissance Force and the Attack Helicopter Force, and as a Brigade is a capability distinct from previous airmobile and air assault brigades.

As well as the tasks conducted by 5th Regiment AAC and their Gazelle helicopters, the reservists of 6th Regiment AAC and the specialist aviation mechanical engineers of 7th Battalion Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers complete the lineup of Brigade units.

The environment in which the British Army and our allies are now operating in is changing and continues to evolve – at pace. The new world sees our adversaries engaging in operations that requires our soldiers to operate across a broad spectrum of operations implemented to protect our homeland, all whilst persistently engaging and constraining our adversaries abroad.

As the way of the military evolves, it places a focus on what combat aviation needs to be prepared for. To meet such challenges 1st Aviation Brigade will generate a Combat Aviation Force in order to deploy on operations, which will possess the capacity to concurrently plan, execute and sustain multiple aviation manoeuvres, and scale up and down in size and power as required.

As well as looking to the future and meeting emerging threats with world-class equipment, we must also acknowledge that the formation of 1st Aviation Brigade ties together a long history of Army aviation, particularly that of the 24th Airmobile Brigade.

The 1st Aviation Brigade flash is a pair of red Griffin Wings on a background horizontally halved on the colours of the Army Air Corps. It was in the guise of the 24th Airmobile Brigade where Army Air Corps units would first wear these Griffin Wings. These were lost from the insignia when 24th Airmobile Brigade combined with elements of 5th Airborne Brigade to become 16th Air Assault Brigade in 1999.

However, the Army Air Corps has veterans and serving soldiers alike who wore the Griffin Wings as part of the 24th Airmobile Brigade, and therefore a history that links us back to them. This resurrection of the emblem as part of the new 1st Aviation Brigade maintains this vital link to Army Air Corps history and reminds us that we cannot lead in to the future without recognising both our origins and unique capability.

As this formation begins a new chapter in Army aviation history, 1st Aviation Brigade’s antecedents and capability is clear. The Brigade’s success will be borne in the coming months and years, a Brigade that operates within an Army that thinks Aviation Manoeuvre. A Brigade that flies, fights, and leads.

Rheinmetall Reveals Advanced Technology Demonstrator Tank with 130mm Turret


New RheinMetall Tech Demo Tank with 130mm Smoothbore turret. Video grab
A video released today by Germany’s Rheinmetall showed a tank with a 130mm turret besides a new hull front as part of its MBT Advanced Technologies Competence demonstration, a possible indication of what will go into the future Main Ground Combat System (MGCS).

The demo tank looks like the latest iteration of its advanced technology demonstrator for the British Army’s Challenger 2 Life Extension Project (LEP). A joint venture was formed between Rheinmetall Defence UK (55%) and BAE Systems Land UK (45%) in 2019 to take forward the Challenger 2 LEP.

A Tweet accompanying the video said “Rheinmetall’s 130mm smoothbore technology for MBTs embodies a significant lethality leap in times of increasing threats. Combined with a state-of-the-art auto-loader, this system is the latest evolvement in Rheinmetall’s MBT Advanced Technologies competence.”

The 130mm smoothbore gun for MBT’s is the most significant advancement in Western MBT design since World War II. Current NATO MBTs are built around the 120mm turret.

The Russian Armata T-15 was the first to break away from the 120mm gun standard by being equipped with a 125mm turret offering significantly improved shooting performance over the 120mm guns of the current Leopard 2 and the UK’s Challenger 2 MBT.

The new 130mm turret, if accepted by the MCGS project could mean a major change in NATO standard tank turret size. The video shows a projectile fired from the 130mm gun piercing through several layers of armored sheets. Besides, the tank moves at a fast pace through cross-country indicating good mobility with the new gun in place.

The hull front in the upgraded Leopard 2 is flatter compared to the current Leopard 2 tank. This may have been necessitated by requirement of armor and to accommodate the gun.

Rheinmetall's Weapons and Ammunition division launched a 130mm demonstrator programme in 2015 to counter improvements in armor of enemy tanks and armored vehicles. The 130mm/L51 turret was first shown at Eurosatory event in 2016. Company executives had then commented that the increase in caliber would allow the firing of more lethal projectiles effectively enhancing the gun’s armor-piercing capacity by a factor of two.

Rheinmetall has also commenced developing a new 130 mm armor-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot (APFSDS) round with elongated rod penetrator, which is supposed to be made of a new tungsten alloy. The new APFSDS round also features a semi-combustible cartridge case and new propellant.

The 130mm smoothbore gun of Rheinmetall is also being considered as part of the modernization of the UK's Challenger s besides the US M1A1 Abrams MBTs.

Armata? O T-64 foi o primeiro carro a ser equipado com uma peça de 125 mm, há mais de 50 anos, seguido do T-72 uns anos depois.

E que tal uns warriors para substituir os M113??

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8660069/Military-chiefs-draw-plans-scrap-Britains-tanks.html


Ministers are thought to be exploring the idea due to the exorbitant cost of upgrading the fleet of 227 Challenger 2 tanks, the UK's main battle tank (main) , and the 388 Warrior armoured vehicles, as reported by The Times. The Challenger 2 is sometimes praised for its imposing presence, but some detractors say it is not the right fit for the British Army, and government officials are understood to be keen to modernise given the changing nature of warfare. It would be a highly poignant departure for the army, who pioneered the use of tanks in the First World War (Bottom). Also facing the axe is the Warrior, which served in Iraq and is still part of the army’s suite of armoured vehicles that also includes the Bulldog and the Stormer (above).

German Leopard 2 MBT could be an option to replace British army Challenger 2 tanks

According to information published by the BBC website, the British army is looking a number of options to modernize its fleet of Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) Challenger 2. The British MoD (Ministry of Defense) options could include the acquisition of German Leopard 2 MBTs or the modernization of Challenger 2, currently in service with the British army.

The FV4034 Challenger 2 is a third-generation British main battle tank (MBT) in service with the armies of the United Kingdom and Oman. It was designed and built by the British company Vickers Defence Systems (now known as BAE Systems Land & Armaments).

In June 1991, the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) placed a £520 million order for 140 tanks with a further 268 ordered in 1994. Production began in 1993 and the unit's tanks were delivered in July 1994, replacing the Challenger 1. The tank entered service with the British Army in 1998, with the last delivered in 2002. It is expected to remain in service until 2035.

In December 2016, the British MoD has concluded a contract with BAE Systems and Rheinmetall Land Systeme for the assessment phase of the Challenger 2 LEP Life Extension Programme to replace obsolete equipment, enhance protection, increase range and provide improved lethality of the tank until an out of service date of 2035 - extending its life from 2025.

The British MoD invested £53 million in the assessment phase. Each contractor receives £23 million, with an additional £7 million being set aside to cover additional, unspecified work. The Rheinmetall consortium includes BMT, Pearson Engineering, Supacat, and Thales UK and includes an option to retrofit Rheinmetall's 120 mm L55 smoothbore gun should additional funds be made available. The BAE team includes General Dynamics UK, Qinetiq, Leonardo, Moog, and Safran.

In October 2018, BAE Systems unveiled its proposed Challenger 2 LEP technology demonstrator, the “Black Night”. The new improvements include a Safran Paseo commander’s independent sight, Leonardo thermal imager for the gunner, and Leonardo night sight DNVS 4. The Black Night Challenger 2 turret has been modified to improve the speed of traverse and provides greater space as well as regenerative braking to generate and store power. Other enhancements include a laser warning system and an active protection system.

At DSEI 2019, the Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land (RBSL) joint venture business is demonstrating its expertise in the world of armored combat vehicles showing demonstrator for the Challenger 2 Life Extension Project (LEP), which included improved fight ability, survivability, surveillance & target acquisition, and lethality with the integration of DM11 programmable High Explosive (HE) tank ammunition.

Citing Forbes, The Leopard 2 is less risky for the United Kingdom because its existing market for spares, upgrades, and other support is huge. The British Leopards would be just a small portion of a global et of thousands of vehicles. London would need to order just 150 Leopard 2s to make local production commercially viable.
According to the Forbes website, modernized the Challenger 2 could take a lot of time and money while acquiring German-made Leopard 2 MBT would enter service faster and, in the long run, be cheaper than the modernization of current British main battle tanks.


The Leopard 2 A7+ is the latest generation of main battle tanks in the family of Leopard 2. It was unveiled in June 2010 during the Eurosatory defense exhibition in Paris, France. The Leopard 2A7 and 2A7+ are now in service with Qatar, Denmark, and Hungary.

The Leopard 2A7+ keeps the general design of the Leopard 2A6 with a crew of four including a driver, commander, gunner, and loader. It features a modular protection kit with passive armor modules to offer 360° protection to the crew from anti-tank missiles, mines, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) fire.

The Leopard 2A7+ is armed with a 120mm L55 / L44 smoothbore gun, which is able to fire standard NATO ammunition and new programmable 120mm HE-rounds. The roof of the turret is fitted with an FLW 200 modular remote controlled light weapon station that can be armed with a 12.7mm heavy machine gun or a 40mm automatic grenade launcher.

British military looks to the ‘Eurotank’ as it weighs its hardware options

By: Andrew Chuter and Sebastian Sprenger



The Franco-German joint venture KNDS displayed its new European main battle tank, a precursor to the Main Ground Combat System, at the 2018 Eurosatory exhibit in Paris. (Staff)
LONDON and COLOGNE, Germany — The British Ministry of Defence has opened discussions with France and Germany about signing up as an observer on their next-generation Main Ground Combat System program, according to government and industry officials in the U.K. and Germany.

Details of exactly what access the British will get to the program remain unclear, as a possible pact wouldn’t be signed until later this year. “Observer status is being granted to the U.K. for the Franco-German Main Ground Combat System program,” an MoD official in London said.

An industry team involving Krauss-Maffei Wegmann, Nexter and Rheinmetall are in the early conceptual stages of pulling together a vehicle design to replace Germany’s Leopard 2 and France’s Leclerc around 2035.

A KMW spokesman told Defense News that the company is aware of ongoing talks aimed at making Britain an observer, but he referred additional questions to the German Defence Ministry.

For the British, the link is expected to help inform future capability requirements developed by the government’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and others as part of the MoD’s Future Ground Combat System program.

That program is considering a series of options to replace the current capabilities in the mounted, close-combat arena from 2040 onward.

The Franco-German tank is not the only program being eyed by the British MoD, which continues to monitor a number of global programs and developers, British officials said.

The German Defence Ministry was tight-lipped on specifics regarding the U.K.’s involvement, though a spokeswoman stressed the project’s international thrust.

“The MGCS project was created with a European approach in mind, open for other nations to participate,” the spokeswoman told Defense News. An observer status would precede a more formal role for cooperation with new candidate countries, she added.

“Bringing new members on board with MCGS is in line with Germany’s aspirations to push consolidation in the European defense industry,” the spokeswoman wrote in an email.

The British interest in MGCS, depending on how far it progresses, has all the markings of a test case for pursuing large-scale, joint programs in a post-Brexit Europe. Military and government leaders from both sides have vowed to leave defense cooperation unscathed after the laborious divorce proceedings that ended the U.K.’s membership in the European Union. Still, London is formally an outside party in a defense cooperation regime engineered through Brussels.

The way ahead for Britain in a broader ground-warfare context might become clearer if the government goes ahead with a dedicated land-equipment industrial strategy as part of a defense and security industrial strategy review.

A land strategy, to go alongside already complete maritime and air reviews, is being considered, but a final decision is outstanding.

The fact that Britain is keeping tabs on the European tank project is a step in the right direction for those who believe the battlefield behemoths still have a future in the British Army. But it didn’t seem that way in August when national media in the U.K. reported the MoD was considering scrapping the service’s 227 Challenger 2 tanks to afford a pivot to more pressing future requirements in areas like cyberspace, space and unmanned vehicles.

Defense Secretary Ben Wallace ended the speculation in September when he denied the Challenger 2 force would be mothballed. However, he didn’t say how many tanks the British would update.

Lethality and protection upgrades to the Challenger, assuming they are approved, will be led by RBSL, the British-based Rheinmetall-BAE Systems joint venture. It includes the installation of a new turret with a 120mm smoothbore gun replacing the rifled cannon currently installed on the vehicle.

A decision on the program approval is imminent, with the business case for the life-extension program delivered to the MoD’s approval body late last year. The idea is to make the vehicles last through 2035 or even 2040.
