Can someone plonk a LAV-25 turret on to a M-114 C&R?  Curious how much it would look like a M800.

Graeme: A Delco turret very much plonked onto an M114 C&R. It looks a bit awkward but, I think would be 'do-able'.

The straight-sided M114 C&R was 2.33 m wide (versus 2.5 m for the sloped-sided LAV-25/Coyote). But, the Delco turret ring is something like 1.5 m so it should fit.

Thanks!

That's a bit bigger than I thought it'd be on a M114.

Have you got a Marder 1A3/1A5 turret you could scale on to the M114?
 
Edit - removing the rear turret basket makes it a little more proportionate. I'm assuming the 114 would be converted to rear engine drive

Ja aber ... she looks a bit top-heavy  :o

Still, the overall effect is very similar to the Lynx II C&R that I've been procrastinating on. Thanks for the nudge  :smiley:

Yep, that helps.

Include the Milan ATGM on that turret too to give some additional firepower:

Good idea. And that begs the question: Is Graeme's intended mission still C&R?

BTW: I forgot to mention that the Marder turret I plonked on was actually pinched from Didi's 1/35 build of the Jordanian 1A3:

C&R without the need for MBT force protection  ;)
