If you have google earth, you can see the RV Triton in Portsmouth harbor in England. Bigger than I expected.

Correct. I think the Falcon turret system is a key exaple of future MBT development trends and possibly the tank that finally outclasses the Abrams in almost every respect.

China close again, it's XA-185...
180 is older model with differet MG mount and some other details (engine and exhaust are allso different)
XA-203 has double armour and it cannot swim thus there is no (don't know the exact name) "wave plate" at the front + it has remote MG turret...

11. Correct - South African MBT, basically a new turret on the Centurian chassis. This is not the standard production turret though.
13. Correct. Czech 155mm SPG although 152mm "Dana" is very similar.
14. Correct - Australian weapon system capable of rediculously high rates of fire (million rounds per minute etc)
15. Correct. Swedish area-defence SAM system.

Ok, I'll take the lack of replies to #16 as a sign that it has passed unnoticed into armored warfare history. It's the Brazilian MB-3 Tamoyo medium tank.

Ok, some more...

21. Cool boat:


22. Retro touch. Cold war defence now out of service:


23. Not what it first appears:


24. Very rare MBT.


25.

22. Correct. Awesome sight I recall, seeing them pointing out to sea waiting for the Russian bombers.
23. Correct, looks like Russian BMP-1 which was clearly a design influence.
25. Correct, Agentine close support aircraft. That one is in British markings because it was captured during the Falklands war.

21 & 24 still open.
