I'm glad to see AFV Club making use of the Centurion tooling. I wonder if we'll see an AVRE 165mm, ARV, or even an AVLB?

1 Combat Engineer Regiment AVRCE removing FLQ checkpoint near Chateaux, Oct 1970. Great WHIF subject for any nation that used the Centurion MBT.

It's a TOW jeep designed to look like a 106mm RR Jeep?

I think it's not a TOW but a FOOT (Fast Optically tracked Optional wire Track)

The original HAW (Heavy Anti-Armour/Anti-Tank)Weapon System that became the TOW did have a much longer launch tube as depicted in the AFV Club kit image but by the time it was put to the test in actual combat in SEA the launch tube was cut down to the length we now see for almost all TOW missile systems fielded.  The exception being the M113 with TOW that was fielded in Europe with USAREUR units which had the longer launch tube.  That too was soon reduced in overall length to the standard short tube.  I was not aware of Israel acquiring the long tube TOW systems so that alone is a nice bit of history.
