British Army's New Ajax Tank Makes Troops Sick 

The British Army is modernizing its forces with new armored fighting vehicles. One vehicle, in particular, called the "Ajax," produced by General Dynamics UK, has been in testing with the service after a multi-billion dollar deal. But there's a problem, the vehicles are so noisy and vibrate violently during operations that tank crews are becoming sick, according to The Times.

The UK government ordered 589 Ajax tanks, formerly known as the Scout SV (Specialist Vehicle), a family of armored fighting vehicles being developed by General Dynamics. A deal between the service and the defense firm was inked in 2014 for $4.5 billion, and after trials in November, it appears these tanks are far from battle-ready.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is insanity, writ large.

Why is it that the companies responsible for creating weaponry feel it is perfectly fine to provide Britain's military with absolute crud, where the engineering has obviously not been thought through at all?!?

Mind you, I hate war; but there should be, in large type, a caveat in every contract for every military bit of weaponry, that if the item does not perform flawlessly, within spec, from the first trial of that weaponry, that the presidents of those corporations who made it, are looking at jail time, and NOT in Britain's equivalent of a Club Fed!!
