Even the box art is light years ahead of the DML/Dragon/Black Label [or should that be "Slack Label?"] kit.

I love that TAKOM is going all-in and isn't dragging their feet about new variants. I hope it works out for them.
Cheers,

Appears to be. What chance a Katzchen APC or the Morsertrager, which are sort of part of the family. Although Thunder models already do a Katzchen.
I have already scratchbuilt both a Katzchen and a Morsertrager, so there is every chance that it will happen

That could be a bit of a fun kit in either civilian or military use. :smiley:

I believe you will will find that these represent the unrotated projectile (UP) launchers add in 1940 with each launcher carrying 20 seven-inch (178 mm) rockets.  See here:  http://www.hmshood.org.uk/ship/aaa.htm and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unrotated_Projectile
