Hmmmm... tough call! I will say I am happy at the speed with which Amusing Hobby is capitalizing on their Centurion tooling. Dare to hope for an ARV and AVLB!

Wouldn't surprise me.  That said, there are ARV options either now (Accurate Armour) or coming (AFV Club)

of course they will, I finished my Accurate Armour kit early this year.
Also did an Accurate Armour Chieftain ARRV, so you are probably good for one of them as well in the short term  ???

Even though I used to be 15-20 minutes away from Bovington Tank Museum/Army Base and used to visit the place fairly often (and where I used to take mrs kitnut back home each night when I first met her back in the early '70's), I've never heard of this tank so had to look it up. It seems they had the prototype up until the '90's ---- it had a commentary box built on top instead of the turret.

goody, goody, goody !

Another one that will not need to be cobbled together from bits or a more expensive Resin kit. Although these kits are not exactly woolworths prices either.

Oooooh, cool!  8)

EDIT: Since everybody seems to be going out of their way to avoid replacing the awful Dragon M103 and since I suspect Amusing Hobby will also release every other early Cold War tank before righting a wrong by giving us a new M103, can I suggest a plastic Black Prince, pretty please?

T-90 and Uran-9.

The Uran-9 is a UGV, I think the first mainstream AFV kit UGV? I recall a resin 6x6 and the EOD Robot bot nothing in styrene It looks to be the size of a M114 perhaps larger than that. It is ripe for BTS treatment - in fact, I had to google Uran-9 to make sure it wasn't a what if!

This Insider article from 2018 said the Uran-9 performed horribly in Syria.
