It would be interesting to do a version of this with a recoilless rifle or ATGM.

Malkara mount.. monstrous, impractical, but impressive  8)
RCL might work, although after the Carrier build, engineering around loading the thing and still  having a clear BBDA would be interesting. Maybe ONTOS like setup.
Who knew Whiff world modelling could be so practical.

I'll need a couple of these.  I spent a year riding around in these as my platoon was part of Boat Company for the 24th MEU(SOC) in 1997-98.

I hope "Goose" up front doesn't puncture the boat or one of his mates with that itchy trigger finger.

It will be interesting to compare this new CRRC kit from Gekko with the old Italeri kit of the same subject.

Although I am currently a bit Gecko shy after the Daimler Armoured Car experience.... this I am so looking forward to.
Can scratch another Resicast conversion off the list.

Now about that 3.7" Anti Aircraft gun ???

IIRC the Kangaroos eventually had makeshift ladders added to the sides made out of whatever was handy. Plus most had .30 cal guns instead of a .50 cal as that way they could carry more ammunition on board. It's been a while since I researched the Kangaroos and repurposed Priests.

Makes me wonder if Gecko will follow up with a 3.7 inch AA gun.
