The CCV was only shown on the IDEX 2011(?).

If the Lance RC turret (on the Marder Evolution CCV) gets replaced by the manned Lance turret, would the passenger capacity be affected?

I know nothing exact about the tower. I donīt know whether it contains technology or is only one dummy. However, it is the same system like with the Puma. I have finished some Marder last weeks. See more at "physical models".

Hello Friends,
I search in south-american community and found photos from another new TAM. I show you. It looks like a "baby- merkava".

How simplified is VCTP compared to Marder?
« Reply #58 on: December 05, 2015, 10:01:58 AM »
Another question: the Argentine VCTP is said to be a simplified version of the Marder; I know that VCTP does not have Marder's ATGM launcher, but is there anything else that the contemporary Marder has but VCTP doesn't?

I'd suggest that it had no night vision equipment, cheaper radios, no datalink equipment.

I'm kinda thinking- since Tanque Argentino Pesado uses a stretched TAM chassis and apparently a Leopard 2 turret, and Vickers combined their MBT Mk.4 turret with Leopard 2 chassis to create the Vickers MBT Mk.7..... perhaps the TAP chassis can also be adopted to take the turret from Vickers MBT Mk.4 or even Challenger 2?

I know- need to overcome politics first.......

This picture got me thinking......

I am currently thinking up a fictional military force that uses Marder 1A5 armed with LANCE turret and later Puma as their definitive IFV but requires an interim Marder 1 variant pending the availability of LANCE turret.

Inspired by Marderman's Marten...... does anyone know if the LAV-25 turret would have that availability advantage, and if such an advantage can translate to the LAV-30 turret (because it can share ammunition with the LANCE Turret) as it is designed and manufactured by the same company?

The variant armed with AMX-13 turret that Marderman was talking about?

If you're asking when the Delco turret for the LAV-25 was first available, it was around 1983.

The FL turret looks nicer on that than on anything I have ever seen it fitted to.

I'm fairly sure Marderman has already built a Marder with the FL turret. Or at least has got one in-progress. Just not sure whether he's already posted pics of them here.

EDIT: Teaser!

Hello,
Yes, I donīt show this tank here. But you can see him in my  Marder, Marder, Marder-thread in "physical models". Now I do it here:




And this is the real vehicle:


And this can be a modern FL-turret:




And another project on Marder:


And I found this variant. I think, it was a polish mortar-turret. The photo was from the MSPO 2013.


But now I work about this vehicle:









greetings,
Didi

I'm thinking more about the production capacity and ability to fulfill urgent orders of Delco v.s. those of Rheinmetall from mid-1990s onward.

Delco: Probably the Marines would get dibs for their LAV-25 orders. Apparently spares supplies weren't very impressive early on either.

Didi: Are you going to build that Marder with the Israeli 60 mm HVMS turret?
BTW, the Polish vehicle mounts the MSK-HSW Rak 120mm breech auto-loading mortar (also seen on the 8x8 Rosomak).

Marder with HVMS? From Verlinden there No.370 a HVMS turret. But that is something different. I wait, maybe there are times the turret in plastic. Lately, many Israeli armour come.
The mortar? Yes, I have seen photos on the polish Rosomak. The kit come from IBG. I hope other versions will come later.

But at the moment I'm concentrating on this vehicle:
