Well I think BaE are also competing in the WCSP too. If they win that then the Warrior and FRES-SV should have common architecture, which would make the same turret more likely, although only if there's no reason to have a special turret.

I'm not sure if this vehicle will also carry specialist teams such as Javelin/AD teams or just carry out much the same function as the Scimitar. I did read that the amount of ammunition carried in the Warrior with a new gun and turret will still be very limited due to size, however I'm not sure just how accurate that information is.

On the same subject the CV90-120 is also looking good from the medium armour perspective.

Seems like the ASCOD won it. Hmm, unexpected.

Yeah Gaz, I made a thread on it a while ago.

It's the ASCOD-2 (FRES-SV). It won against BaE's CV90 variant.

Its final now. Looks like BAE's last minute scrambling wasn't enough. Good news for my GD shares :P

semi related, but apparantly Janes Defence Weekly is reporting that

*CVR(T) family to re-enter production for British Army


Negotiations are under way between the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) and BAE Systems to restart production of hulls for the British Army's Combat Vehicle...
30-Apr-201

Jane's Defence Weekly - Europe (8 articles down)

can't view the whole story as i don't have an account, but it seems odd to restart the production lines after a replacement has already been chosen
