Matilda hull with T-34 turret looks really good - I wonder how we could make it work.

The ISherman turret/T55 hull looks like something you'd see in the Lebanese Civil Wars.

To install this french 105mm gun in some other WWII turrets could be a good Idea IMO.

I love heavies like this Super T-10M. Equipped with 20mm cuppola turret and a pair of heavy machine guns to deal with prowling enemy infantry.

@Carlos - IRL at Fort Campbell, KY (ca 1989-1990) there were some obsolete M48 Tank hulls that had M60A2 turrets in a holding area waiting to be taken out to the firing ranges.  An interesting combination destined to become range targets.

What if the saga of soviet heavy tanks continued during '60s and '70s?

Here you can see first two members of LB(1) series along with T-10M (RW).

LB-1 armed with a 125mm gun, is here parading in Red Square, Moscow.
LB-2 is armed with a 130mm gun.



(1) LB: Leonid Brezhnev https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonid_Brezhnev

A light Utility car has been developed. Aesthetically inspired in Velorex/Oscar (1). Technically it is more than Velorex: 4 wheels, engine and traction in front, ...

A pair of US militaries perform a recce mission. But they are not unarmed ;D and if they are lucky, will practice their snyper skiils. :unsure:

Finn Armour in second winter war.

After the fall of Berlin Wall, finn gov and army decide to conquest back the territories that russians took during wwii.

Suply mint Leopard 2A would be too expensive, so finn authorities urge german gov and army to suply turrets and guns, new or used, for Leopard 2A 3 or 4.

When first victories come, finn army begin to take advance of "russian suply" ;)
