Rosomak with XC-8 Turret sporting 120mm gun via Army Recognition...

CMI Defense can take a breather.  They've convinced me that they can mount a large caliber gun on practically any vehicle in anyone's inventory (within reason).

What I didn't know is that there was a defense exhibition going on.  Luckily Army Recognition has us covered and you can check out their coverage here and here.

Sidenote:  Greysave asked in another thread if it was even worth doing a "survivability upgrade" on the AAV.  I just don't know.  I'd be more in favor of increasing its lethality if we're going to continue to use it as an APC.  With that in mind how about replacing the manned 50/40 with a RWS and pulling a few out of storage and mounting a 105mm gun on it to provide amphibious mobile fire support?  I think that would probably be more valuable and could be accomplished while we wait another DECADE for the ACV to arrive.
