Slowakische Streitkräfte
Haben wir noch gar nicht. Da die Slowakei im Forum eher selten Thema ist, denke ich, dass ein Strang für alle Teilstreitkräfte genügt:

Zitat:Abschied vom Kampfpanzer

(dpa) Die slowakische Armee soll schon in einem halben Jahr völlig ohne Panzer auskommen. Die Kriegsführung mit Panzern entspreche nicht mehr dem gegenwärtigen Bedrohungsszenario eines Nato-Mitglieds inmitten Europas, sagte Ivan Rudolf, der Sprecher des Verteidigungsministeriums, am Dienstag. Die Aufgaben der Slowakei im Rahmen des Bündnisses seien ohne teure Panzer zu erfüllen.

Schon Anfang des Jahres hatte das Verteidigungsministerium 37 Panzer ausser Dienst gestellt. Bis zum Jahresende sollen die verbliebenen 30 Stück folgen. Sollte ein Verkauf aller Panzer nicht möglich sein, schliesst das Ministerium auch eine Verschrottung nicht aus. Einzelne Panzer könnten auch an Museen übergeben werden.

So...nach den Niederlanden verzichtet nun also auch die Slowakei auf ihre schwere Kavallerie.

Zitat:Armor: Poland Enters The Export Market

September 2, 2015: In mid-2015 Slovakia ordered 30 Rosomak Wheeled Armored Vehicles from a Polish firm. These vehicles will cost about $1.1 million each and are the first export sale. Rosomak is a Polish design that began as a licensed variant of Finnish AMV (Armored Modular Vehicle). Rosomak is not just a license built AMV but a Polish variant that is, unlike the AMV, amphibious and air transportable by C-130 transports. Moreover Rosomak has extensive and successful combat with Polish troops in Afghanistan and peacekeepers in Chad and Central African Republic.

Rosomak is available as 8x8 or 6x6 wheeled vehicles weighing 16-26 tons, depending on configuration (like armor, weapons, or engine). In particular, the vehicle is built to accept several degrees of armor enhancements.

Poland is the largest foreign customer for the AMV, and Rosomaks are assembled in Poland using a lot of Polish components along with a lot of Polish modifications. The basic infantry version has a 30mm Bushmaster II autocannon in a turret, along with a 7.62mm machine-gun. This version has a crew of three and carries 8-12 passengers. The Rosomaks in Afghanistan were mostly on the heavy side because of increased use of armor. There were several models in Afghanistan (infantry carriers, ambulance, command, and surveillance). There was even a surveillance model equipped with an Israeli surveillance package. This included a radar, thermal sensor, motion sensor, and a small UAV. One of these vehicles can move to some high ground and detect activity over a wide area (out to ten kilometers, night or day, and in any weather).

The original 2002 Polish AMV license was for 690 AMV vehicles with no rights to sell them abroad but in 2013 the contract was renegotiated for additional 307 vehicles and export restrictions were removed. As a result Poles started to seek for potential buyers.

The Slovakian Army Rosomaks have different armament and turrets. While the Poles use the manned Oto Melara Hitfist-30P turret with American Mk 44 Bushmaster II 30mm gun the Slovakian variant will use the unmanned Tura 30 turret which can host locally made 2A42 30mm gun as main armament coupled with PKT 7.62 mm machine gun. All Rosomak turrets can also be equipped with Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM), such as the Russian Konkurs (also locally produced) or the Israeli Spike.

The first KTO Rosomak export sale was largely the result of Polish willingness to cooperate with the customer on modifications. Other former Warsaw Pact East European countries need a vehicle like Rosomak to replace their Cold War era equipment. So far the only competitor has been the Austrian Pandur II. The Czech Republic bought some of these and was not happy.

Man vergleiche mal diesen Preis mit dem eines GTK Boxer ohne Turm und ohne 30mm MK !! Der liegt bei 3,5 Mio Euro Vollkosten. Für nur einen GTK Boxer ohne Turm und ohne MK könnte man hier nicht weniger als vier vollausgestattete ROSOMAK mit 30mm MK und mit PALR und Mun einkaufen.......

Zitat:Slovakia unveils 8x8 Corsac infantry fighting vehicle

Zitat:Slovakia's MSM Group has unveiled a new air-transportable 8x8 wheeled infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) prototype called the Corsac, which is based on the General Dynamics European Land System (GDELS) Steyr Pandur II armoured personnel carrier.

Developed by a team lead by MSM Group with partners including EVPU, Konstrukta Defence, and GDELS-Steyr, the Corsac is designed to meet the requirements of the Slovak Armed Forces and is fitted with the Turra 30 remotely-operated turret.

The prototype measures 7.43 x 2.67 x 2.95 m and has a ground clearance of 0.45 m. The vehicle is operated by a three-person crew comprising the commander, driver, and gunner with provision for up to six dismounts or 9,500 kg of payload.

With STANAG 4569 L2 ballistic protection for the hull and STANAG 4569 L3A/B mine-blast protection, the vehicle has a combat weight of 19,800 kg. Ballistic protection can be further improved to STANAG 4569 L3 or L4 by adding ceramic-based armour appliqué.

A nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) protection suite is also included, comprising the FVZ-98M filtering and air-conditioning system, RAID XP toxic agent detector, and OS-3M decontamination set. ... 645986.jpg

A 450 hp turbo-charged Cummins ISLe HPCR diesel engine provides a maximum output of 335 kW and 1,637 Nm of torque, enabling the vehicle to attain a maximum road speed of 115 km/h with a range of 650 km. An optional amphibious capability delivers a swimming speed of 10 km/h.

The Turra 30 is manufactured by EVPU and can be armed with a range of 30 mm automatic guns such as the Soviet-made 2A42 or US Bushmaster Mk 44. Secondary armament options include a 7.62 mm calibre machine gun or 12.7 mm heavy machine gun. The turret is also equipped with two 9M113 Konkurs (NATO AT-5 'Spandrel') anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) although the Rafael Spike system can be mounted as an option.
