Sorry, the rules say you can only have a new subject if it's been done before...

Exactly! Why another v2 with Dragon and Academy available plus now Voiio and DEF conversion? Probably because they just need to add a sprue or two to their previous releases, so it's cheaper.

I will get it just because it's my favourite tank but I am running out of Abrams shelf space...

Can anyone understand what the poster says? Is the release date 16th to 18th June?

We definitely need M1A2C with its lengthened turret and hull - especially the shape of the turret frontal plates is much more complex now, so I don't think adapting any previous kit will be easy with new seams, new angles, more anti-skid etc.

How soon do you guys think we will get a new tool M1A2C or at least a conversion set (DEF, Y-modelle etc.)?

Thanks!

If Ryefield includes their Abrams interior with this, that would be great. I'm not an Abrams expert, but this release does have some smaller updates I don't remember being in the Dragon kit. The Academy kit has some issues with the wheel spacing, so some may not find that a good option.

At least this one makes sense since Rye Field already has other Abrams and has an M1A2 SEP model already.

It would be easy to do yourself by getting both kits and using the interior in the SEP v2 kit. I'm sure the basic hull and turret, etc. are the same w/the interior fittings present.
