At this point, cancel this stupid project and launch a next-gen tank project also modernize all current leopards to todays standard with APS.
I understand how you feel. How do you start on a new tank for the future if you can't make an engine or transmission of the past.

Launching a next gen tank project gives you time for the bmc, tumosan or any other company for a new engine tender and development. Next gen tanks could have enclosed mortar, aps or missile launch system, top down aps protection, autoloader, unmanned operation capabilities, high mobility capability, better firing range, stealth capability, better crew protection designs.. so many characteristics missing on the Altay tank..

By the time we have the numbers, it's already an old design..

Yes but they dont offer top down aps protection, better firing range, stealth, better crew protection, high mobility, autoloader, unmanned capabilities, enclosed weapon launchers. Except for T3 offering autoloader and unmanned turret.

you sure sound like some child wanting every whiz bang feature possible in a video game.

There are things like budget, time, rnd, timetables, priorities....

Does anyone believe we are really working on a transmission or just waiting on Korea. I would like for us to start making a transmission with the know how we have and doing reverse engineering. There are no SECRETS about gearboxes for tanks. It's nothing like making single crystal turbine blades. We need someone in the government to make an order for a prototype to test. Waiting for some other country is silly.

Advance digital transmission gearbox can be as tricky as modern turbofan. There is reason why only a few players on market.
