R&D, New Adoption, Procurements Thread I Strelok 05/20/2020 (Wed) 15:04:43 No.512
NEW SHIT HOT SHIT Thread to discuss new research projects, developments, adoptions, and procurements of /k/ related material. JAPAN: "Type 20" Rifle unveiled = Improved Drainage, Pistol Renewed May 18th http://archive.is/3oiGh https://trafficnews.jp/post/96397 Translated by anon >The Ground Self Defense Forces unveiled newly adopted Type 20 5.56mm rifle and 9mm Pistol SFP 9 to the press on the 18th. The new rifle has been outfitted with use in remote island defence operations in mind, with improvements in drainage and corrosion resistance, in addition to a new stock with adjustable cheek riser and stock extension. The new rifle is to be adopted by infantry regiments of the various army groups and the Amphibious Rapid Deployment Brigade. >The current rifle (Type 89) was introduced in 1989, and pistol (P220) in 1982, both being renewed for the first time in 31 and 38 years respectively. The Ministry of Defence plans to acquire 3283 new Type 20 rifles and 323 SFP9 pistols within the year. >The new rifle is made by Howa Industries (Aichi Pref. Kiyosu City). It is capable of firing 30 rounds continuously [sic], and maintains the famous "ア・タ・レ (translates to HIT)" selector markings (安全・アンゼン=Safe)・タ(単発・タンパツ=Single Shot)・レ(連射・レンシャ=Automatic Fire)". The rifle has a grip on the forend improving manipulation [sic]. The new pistol is made by Heckler and Koch of Germany and carries 15 rounds. The grip is far more ergonomic and it is capable of single handed magazine extraction. With sexy andguards with MLOK slots, cringepods, and journalists who know so little about firearms and picatinny rails, you can all marvel how the Japanese rearmament continues cheerfully.
>>9297 I saw a vz. 52 in a shop a couple of months ago wondering where you'd get the ammo for it without scrounging.
>>9298 Which, the belt fed or the magazine fed?
>>9301 Meant to sage.
>>9302 The rifle.

>>9466 Ah then, ok its kinda complicated because there are two vz.52 Also >Norway is buying new tanks, K2 Panther or Leopard 2A7 https://esut.de/en/2020/11/meldungen/24103/neue-kampfpanzer-fuer-norwegen/ >The Norwegian Defense Minister Frank Bakke-Jensen presented the Norwegian plans to replace the equipment with battle tanks. According to this, Norway wants to use the new tanks from 2025. >Based on the land forces study by the Norwegian Parliament Storting from 2018, it was examined how protection and communication in particular can be brought up to modern standards in accordance with military requirements. After an upgrade of the existing tanks was rejected as insufficient, market analyzes revealed the latest versions of the Leopard 2 and the South Korean K2 Black Panther as candidates for the procurement project. >In preliminary talks with German and South Korean authorities, the options for industrial defense cooperation and access for Norwegian products to the defense equipment market of the supplier countries are now to be discussed. >In 2021, the Ministry of Defense wants to submit the procurement planning to the Storting for approval. Time is already short to procure an estimated 200 battle tanks by 2025.
Any word about the new US jungle boot program? I heard only two tenders went through 'as needed', which meant only a fraction of the expected sales. Was this because they were no good?
