M48 medium tank Bundeswehr installed a prototype turret from the Leopard 2A4.

Hat Tip to Bmashina Tumblr Page.

This is actually a neat solution.  Evolution in armor has stagnated but you can actually FEEL new concepts being tried worldwide.  It might be a marriage between old hulls and new turrets, increased optics/sensors, etc...but you're gonna see new stuff rolled out.

It's past time!

The emphasis on air has reached a point where ground forces will be better able to defend themselves (because that emphasis pushed more effective countermeasures).  That makes armor the new hotness if you're gonna actually maneuver in the future.  Having your assault helicopter lazed out of the sky just as its approaching an LZ is not optimal!
