Old Weapon Upgrades

Postby kvnrthr » Thu 7 May 2015 03:55

Personally I've found it quite interesting to see really old equipment being upgraded to extremely high standards. I'll just list a few which I find are interesting:

T-55M6:

A more radical upgrade with longer chassis with 6 road wheels each side, a 690 hp V-46-5M diesel engine and with the complete turret with automatic loader and 2A46M 125mm main gun of the T-72B. Also the protection was increased to T-80U level. Optionally the tank can be equipped with the 1A40-1 fire control system with ATGM system 9K120 "Svir" (as T-72B) or with the 1A42 and 9K119 "Refleks" systems (as T-80U). Combat weight is 43 tonnes.


M-41D:

Taiwan's M41D life extension system upgrade includes a new, locally produced 76mm main gun, new diesel engine, thermal targeting system, digital ballistics computer and laser rangefinder, and reactive armor. However, the tank lacks stabilized sights and cannot fire on the move, and is relegated to scouting and counter-amphibious operations.


What are your favorite old upgraded weapons?
Hoping for a better next-gen Wargame and new engine in a few years...
One can dream ;_;

A K200 with a BMP-3 turret? Nice going SK.

Or is it a severely upgraded M113 with a BMP-3 turret produced by the Turks themselves?

Well, produced would be a strong word since there's only one, but that's basically what it is. The upgraded M113 is called an AIFV.

Also, on topic, this fine fellow:

Last of a dying breed. Didn't leave service until 1989.

Scimitar 2 is a pretty neat upgrade, take the turret, plonk it on a bigger hull and give it a powered turret and all sorts of other goodies including the optional ability to in the future i believe upgrade to the 40mm going on warrior.
