Doan Thanh Hieu built the Tamiya M109 almost out of the box, he added the Spade Ace tracks. Painting his M109 to represent a vehicle during the Vietnam war he added a number of period accessories and figures before adding it to scenic base.

Good catch. True, but none have been fielded yet. They are being tested at Ft Hood, TX though. Fielding is scheduled to begin in February 2017. It has the same basic Paladin turret (now all electric drive as opposed to older M109A6s which were hydraulically driven) on an all-new hull based on Bradley running gear and engine/transmission/final drive components, new T161 track, and mounts a CROWS II RWS.

Augh! Let's try this again.... That A7 looks like it has elements from the NLOS-C, especially in the hull.

[/quote] That makes perfect sense. They'll take an AFV designed to operate 20+KM away from it's target and add an weapon system designed for short ranged defence

If you had ever served in an artillery Bn or any other military unit, you would know that there is always a chance of small enemy units operating in depth on the battlefield who are always looking to attack soft targets. Also, the Paladin doesn't operate 20km from the front lines, but usually withing a km or two so that most of your range is forward of our troops. Often, the lines change or units get overrun and have to defend themselves against ground attack.
