Same vehicle?



If so, it's one of the prototype turrets I believe on a Leo 1 hull

AGM: Shades of the SP 70/PzH 155-1 ... very cool!  Was that Leopard 2 AGM ever prototyped?

The original image in the background is the only one I know of. I don't know if it's a real test vehicle or a good photo montage.

Some 1/35 versions would be nice.

Hello,
I have one more unique. I knew I'd seen it in a book I was given. A picture when he was still doing well. ;)



He wasn't doing well then :o

It's sad to see these old prototypes & experimentals left to rot or, possibly worse, hear of them being destroyed as some kind of range target or similar. :icon_crap:

Wow! A Bundeswehr Gepard with Signaal radar!  In such sad condition but still great to see. Thanks Didi  :smiley:

I'd like to do a modern day Gepard, on a MEXAS lower hull. Replace the tracking radar with an ADATS E/O module.

Hmm, anyone got a 35th Mexas lower hull they aren't using  :-)

Agree mate!!

Always thought a museum that specialised in prototypes and mockups would be a huge seller 🤔
