well this is good news! Thank you, Legends'... I see a couple of sets there that I will have immediately.

Just a little "FYI" in the "Achzarit" update is that perforated step at the back is only good for an ambulance; the two armored ventilation covers beside the "Achzarit" go on the hull top, and are seen with all versions of the remote weapon station, on the "late" hull, that is not with T55 wheels (unless someone has photos to the contrary?).

Would be cool if Lengend Productions will release the mineplow and the dozerblade for the Puma. Legend should definitly considering make the ammo feed of the OWS in resin instead of PE.

Yep, all the would be good. And who knew there were different "droids"?!

Those rockets for the "carpet" system are massive!

The "Droid" itself is the same, only the mountings are different.
Here some informations about the Carpet system.

The beautiful thing is that decals for an ambulance already exist in the Meng "late" Achzarit. Simply move the weapon station to the left and with the step, you're done.

I can't wait to see these for sale.

As for the feed chute to the MG, Live resin do a great option which works well. Or, simply use a length of linked ammo. Too easy!

Speaking of the Carpet System, I know it was mounted on the Puma but was it ever mounted on the Nagmashot?

I have a photo somewhereof it on an early Nagmashot with the lower fighting compartment though, and also on a Shot-Cal Dalet. They may have used it on the later Nagmashot with the raised superstructure, as you can never say never when it comes to the IDF.

Thanks! I read that the IDF had turned their Nagmashots into engineer vehicles and found photos with the mine rollers. So was curious if they had the CARPET Launchers too.

IDF Centurion based engineer vehicle is called Puma or Poretz Mokshim Handasati. And of course they are equipped with the CARPET system.

The Puma is (still) the standard Carpet system platform (they're slowly being replaced with Nameras), however most of them are not equipped with it (no need in such large numbers). Most Pumas are actually Heavy APC's designed to carry combat engineers and their equipment.

Would love to see those, especially the Sho't!

I believe that's actually the early Nagmachon.
