Thanks for posting, it's the first time I've seen such clear photos of this vehicle. Would make for an interesting conversion. But then again, there are plenty of other IDF vehicles that need kitting, too.

Thank you,

Kylie

No sign of a ladder - is the occupant stuck inside when it goes up? Can't say I fancy that duty...

Safety wise much better if you ask me, plus you're protected...

The "NagmaPop" observation vehicle is utilizing IAI's "POP" system.



An earlier version of the '"NagmaPop".

A rare "Nakpadon" with front hatch, used by "Sayeret Yahalom", a special combat engineering unit of the Israeli Engineering Crops.

Hello ReluctantRenegade,

Great photos, and thank you for posting them. Do you have anything showing the "initial" Achzarit with three weapon stations, please? I'd be very grateful if you did.

The tracks on the Nakpadon, are the Centurion reinforced Batash tracks. They are used on the Puma and Nagmachon vehicles.

The real thing, please, if you have any photographs. I'm interested in modelling a vehicle with three RCWS, rather than the swing arm mounts.

Thanks,

Kylie

Take a look at my previous post, just updated it, but I'm afraid that's not the you're after, is it?

its all good, thanks; it is a long shot, after all.

It would be great to see some of these vehicles as kits, such as the Nakpadon, and the Puma with "doghouse".

Not to mention a Pereh, Eitan, Namer, and a Gurdian.

What about the Puma with 'Thor'? & the ECM Puma with the large lockers on the read deck? Too many to choose from!
