Quick question for this campaign, would a tank that has been fitted with a mine protection kit allowed? I'm thinking of building a Leopard 2A6M CAN updated for the Afghan mission.

Thanks,

Christian



That does not fit the build. The build is for MRAPs and that is just a tank with a mineplow on it.



I didn't make a reference to a mineplow but thank you for your answer.

Cheers,

Christian



Misread mine protection kit as mineplow, but my answer remains the same. At the end of the day you have a tank with armour added on. This group build is for the dedicated MRAP or V hulled vehicles which became prominent in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Definitely in, tentatively with either the Panda 4x4 Cougar or Kinetic Maxx Pro; still wary of starting the Cougar, oh well I have time. The Panda kit doesn't fit into the Fallujah project, so it's not going anywhere either way.

I'm in, just not ure which one I'll do yet. Might wait a while longer to see if the redesigned M-ATV from Kinetic makes an appearence.

Would the Airfix 1/48 Jackal & Coyote count? They do have the armoured V shaped hull....

Sean I believe that they are both MRAP's so you should be good to go.

If anyone has proposals for the campaign ribbon let me know, my artistry online is rather lacking.

Is M1117 a MRAP? I think it is a upgraded APC without an armoured V shaped hull.

What do you think?

I think the M1117 is a MRAP, it was part of the MRAP program. The M1117 is the textron Commando advanced, the Canadian forces use the Commando Elite, and I believe it is a MRAP.

The Bushmaster is a Cat II MRAP. So you're good to go.

I'm in. M-ATV is in my stash. Maxx-Pro and Cougar are on the way. The decision is difficult.

Best
