How about an M113 with saladin turret as us aussies have done! Not sure if it is 75mm or 76mm gun Also fully amphib Picture attached Pete (tank construction halted due to hovercraft construction starting) Curran www.angelfire.com/mech/sherman -----Original Message----- From: tanks-admin-at-rctankcombat.com [mailto:tanks-admin-at-rctankcombat.com] On Behalf Of Clark Ward Jr Sent: Thursday, 5 July 2007 12:04 To: tanks-at-rctankcombat.com Subject: Re: modern armour (was aluminum cutting question) [TANKS] I think we'll have to get a ruling for The Powers That Be on this one. I still think no APC should go higher than a 2. Even the Centurion tanks that the Israelis converted to APCs still have an open fighting compartment. If the ruling comes down and it's a 3 for APCs, I'll go with it, but calling an inch or two of aluminum _armor_ is quite a stretch for me :) I definately think the Bradleys are cool looking and would be neat on the battlefield. Imagine arming the TOW launcher for your cannon, and getting vehicle-down behind a piece of terrain like the real ones do :) -- Clark M60A1 "the Beast" under construction KI4GYT -- Why do tankers call infantry "Crunchies"??? Because they ARE!!!
