This really is a cracking build Gingie, the nearest thing I have to this is the LAV-25 air defense system, the one I built is the Jadar resin kit, and I think they have stopped making it, but after looking at this, anything with a turret is fair game  >:D. I also did a Sheridan with a Gatling gun and Stingers,as well as a Leopard 2 with the same sort of set up up. Looks like I will have to acquire some more guns now.
cheers
Chris.

Gingie,

I remember visiting the RCAF base at Badeb-Baden, Germany many years ago (1991) and being shown round the ADATS & 30mm Oerlikon unit there.  Happy days...

All mucked up!

It would certainly look right at home over at the Yakima Firing Center in the spring or fall.

LOL, I'm far more handsome than I am modest. I was surprised Osprey let me put a whatif in the book.

A Canadian version of this real-life prototype:



Still not sure if I will add something like CRV-7 or Hellfire for the 'ground defence' role.

With all of the recent developments for precision guided 70mm FFAR it would make perfect sense to allocate one of the launcher positions for a container of these weapons.

Looking good! Adding on the CRV-7PG sounds like a good idea.

just goes to show that "what-if" is gaining ground  ---  even Missing Lynx doesn't deride the Paper-Panzers & What-ifs like used to happen.

The Falcon is more credible than many Paper-Panzers too, like my Abrams-AGS, it has undergone much more development than anything from WW2 & may just actually see service one day.

Quick and dirty kit bash of Trumpeter's LAV-25 and AVGP Grizzly.

From the top, it look like a regular Grizzly...



But due to Canada dropping the Amphibious capability requirement, the space allocated for the marine drive unit was replaced with a driven axle. Wheelbase remains the same, but it goes from a 6x6 to an 8x8.
 

Which was well suited for its new role as a C3 105mm Gun Tractor in Canada's Reserve Field Artillery Regiments.

What to do with the left overs of a LAV-AD upper hull and Grizzly lower hull? It's a no-brainer!

Grizzly AD gun/missile system; the very-short range air defence (VSHORAD) fire team partner to the short range air defence (SHORAD) Cougar AD elsewhere in this forum.



Add the ramp from an M-113 (mostly because I pooched the kit's rear hull plate!). The ramp fits with some minor surgery.




Don't mind the gap as the turret halves are not glued yet

Very nice combination of ordnance and it makes perfect sense to have an armoured prime mover for you towed piece.  I suspect the basic load carried might be a bit tight with all of the crew carried inside.  But that is what the supply trains and ammunition platoon are for, eh?

Drop the turret to make a lot more room inside and replace it with a remote control gun system from the Stryker. Just my $0.02 worth.

For a while during the SFOR mission, we actually used the Grizzly 6x6 as the prime mover for the LG-1 105mm:

Cheers, yep 1/35. The best part is these Trumpeter kits don't break the bank. The LAV-AD was $20 at the LHS and the AVGP was just over $20 from a Canadian mail order shop.
