    Standard base line of A modern IFV is 14.5mm across the front less to the side or rear. However modern armor add on modules can take that up significantly, if the vehicle has the ability to take the modules.
    Griffin 3 in theory might go up from its base line of 35 tons to 40 tons. That would Handel up to 30mm across the front and sides...
    Lynx KF41 is based at about 37 tons but could go up to 50 tons which means more add on armor for higher protection levels closer to 57mm maybe even 125mm to the front.

    it takes a think-tank to say (https://csis-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/s3fs-public/publication/191003_Cancian_FY2020_Navy_v3.pdf)

    "The Navy is also procuring unmanned surface and undersea vessels, with potentially revolutionary long-term force structure implications."

    related to the post above (but Ukraine-only):

    There's not a lot of confidence out there about the prospects for a 2020 budget agreement. "A stripped down mini-NDAA may be all that could pass this year for defense," says one long-time budget watcher.
