Sisu GTP 4 X 4 with "highly modular structure, which enables numerous variants for different operational uses, all using the same backbone structure."

I finally stumbled across a pic of the Fox MILAN.

As it turns out, the main turret of the prototype vehicle appears to not be just a modified original turret (I was wondering why, according to the wording used by most online articles mentioning this variant, the RARDEN cannon was replaced with a 7.62mm chaingun before spotting this picture) but a new one altogether.

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

I note that a few sources that describe this as an MCT (MILAN Compact Turret) which yours certainly isn't.

Somebody on arrse.co.uk said that the two Fox prototype conversions each had a different turret type ... though neither was based on the original Fox turret. So maybe there was the one in your photo and another that had the MCT? Dunno.

I think the MCT refers to the twin MILAN launcher, which I also think is (almost or outright) the same as used by the FV120 Spartan MCT, on the main turret roof.

Incidentally, I know Wikipedia probably shouldn't be considered as authoritative, but its description of the FV120 Spartan MCT as having a two-man turret is kinda weird- that superstructure the MILAN launcher is mounted on doesn't look trainable to me.

Some folks might find this interesting as another option for a T-34-85 turret lying around in a spares box.
