Is the same version that Meng and RPG make?
I assume there are variations.
RPG makes this version, but not Meng. Meng’s version (as well as the first turreted RPG version) has a turret that is presently not in use (at least last time I checked) and was only a trial version. This Zvezda kit, as well as the second turreted RPG kit, represents the turret currently in service with the VDV.
RPG’s kit is pretty good, so it will be interesting to see if Zvezda’s is any better. About the only thing lacking in RPG’s kit is a rear interior (Meng includes one but since their kit isn’t of an actual in service version…) so it would be nice if Zvezda included one, but from the looks of the CAD images, they will not.
Good to know, thanks.
