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

Some very nice kit bashing you got going there Graeme.

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?

I like that LAV-AD turret. Lots of possibilities there!

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.
