Dang, I wouldn’t think that it’s that big! That’s a giant vehicle.

3,6 Meters high. The turret is manned and the rear of the vehicle is filled with 30mm rounds.
If RoG is clever, they can make all the modules and make lots of money.

For GTK Boxer fans, Y-Modelle released the module for command Boxer.

One can hope unless Takom or another beat them to the punch.

Who knows? It all depends who will get the right references, for highest price… Getting informations for this one can´t be cheap. But since RoG retired from making own 1/35 scale models, I think we need to put our money on a Chinese company.

Wow that thing is huge! And tall as well.

Rather than RoG I’d like to see RFM or Meng tackle this one. That’s one beefy 8 wheeler. How many infantry does it carry?

Indeed. A crew of three and lots of ammo. Interestingly, the vehicle has an FN MAG as co-ax.
