I would like to introduce you to the WZT2 Armoured Recovery Vehicle model. WZT2 was made in the colors of 82 bes (82 equipment evacuation battalion) from Oleśnica, which is part of the 10th Opole Logistics Brigade. The base was the MiniArt T55A (37023) model - only a bathtub and wheels. Many elements were printed in excellent 3D quality by my colleague from Genero3D. I did the rest from scratch. Caterpillars are friule, AK Interactive lights, chemistry, pigments are MIG
A few words about the history of the vehicle:
Polish ARV built on T-55 hull. It was built to perform repairs on T-55 and T-55A tanks. When it entered service in 1973 it was probably the best ARV in the Warsaw Pact. It is still able to carry out tasks that NATO gives ARVs of its class. Unlike the T-55 and the WZT-1, the WZT-2 is still the basic ARV of the Polish army used for field repairs. It can carry out repairs not only on Soviet tanks like the T-54/T-55 and T-72 but also on Polish PT-91 and German Leopard 2A4. A number of those vehicles are used by Ratownictwo Kolejowe (Railroad emergency response services).
