Did you say up gunned?

What about this?



BTW: turret must be a narrowed version.
Hey, I have just that planned.


It might be a bit tight on a regular width hull but perhaps better to combine a pair of hulls side by side to get enough room inside to fit the turret?

Having into account the movility problems AMX-30 had in the beginning, this is IMO perfectly plausible.
BTW, AMX-30's turret is that big. :D


That really looks cool.  Maybe do one with a Leo 1 turret...or a Leo 1 with a Panther turret?

Extremely wheeled. Hanomag base will allow more room for turret



Note: this case is better scaled. In the last 8-rad, turret was a bit downsized.

I love the short PT-76s. From the side they look like BMDs.

very nice profiles ! ..... but I don't think they're short enough -- how about just 4 roadwheels per side like the chinese things ? ... or even only 3 ... 2 ... 1 ??? :D

Some nifty conversions of the Chinese type were done by the Tamils in Sri Lanka ;)

If you drop down to one road wheel per side you could change the crews uniforms to include technicolour fuzzy wigs,bulbous red noses and white face paint

ISTR that a Merkava prototype was initially tested with a turret from the M48......

I wonder if we can still call the result of a M48 turret indeed operationally paired with a Merkava hull a M48......

In one of the old "Born In Battle" issues there was an image of the Merkava prototype vehicle that had an M48 turret which gave it an unusual appearance so you are not far from the reality of it with your M60 turret on the Merkava hull :)
