CGS:upgrading challenger and warrior.

The Russians have had autoloaders for decades. How do they get on?
despite being a comp,ex double carousel, lift svd losd two piece ammunition system, just fine.

but this is the best of breed bad boy that CR-130 is using.

Would you happen to have any evidence to support your claim?

Because all we can see of the 130mm turret shown is a shell getting rammed.

Look at the video, its the GIAT autoloader out of the Leclerc - the one Rheinmettal has adopted after they bought NEXTER. Its the best of breed, the French made an exceptionally good job with it.
 
But anyway, we digress……

As we now know the future IS an autoloader, as shown in the video.

Krauss Maffei Wegmann partnered with NEXTER. KMW is not Rheinmetall.
 
Even RM mention 130mm may well (take it as read that to function properly in action) need an autoloader as the article in my post #8476 on page 424 highlights.

If RM suggest it does indeed need one we'll most likely be staying with 120mm, at least while we still have CR2.

Probably not.
RM have designed the whole gun package so its an upgrade path from 120mm to 130mm, the cases are the same basic size, just longer - basically a 'magnum' 120 case.
No logic in redesigning the wheel up the road to get a new tube in the turret.
They have designed a 'Euroturret' that you can tweak to suit. but will fit all existing chassis either as a 'new' tank, or an upgrade.

Smoootbore CR2? Fit the autoloader turret, fit the magazine stops for the shorter cases, fit the 120 tube - upgrade to 130 at a later date is then just take out the stops, dial in the longer the rammer stroke and swap the tube.

You really talk bullshit.
