Good afternoon:
More cuban recycled vehicles, 3 SPAAG systems:
[ img ]
BTR-60-23-2, or BTR-23, or BTR-60-ZU-23. Made pairing the twin 23 mm ZU-23 in a widened pit of the well known BTR-60
[ img ]
BTR-60-30-2. The ubiquitous BTR-60 with the czechoslovakian twin 30 mm turret.
[ img ]
BTR-60-37-2, the hull of the APC was cut down, allowing full rotation to a rather big turret armed with twin 61K 37 mm guns. Unfortunatelly, in any of the present systems I was able to see any associated radar or optronic device, so I suppose the the guns are optically controled by the gunners (or the control vehicle was absent in the military parade!).
Credits. Once again, the BTR-60 was authored by Caddaric, and the Praga twin 30 mm turret is MarKhan's. Thanks to both. Cheers.

I've never seen these before, very interesting and nicely drawn.
They certainly look like they are from another era.

Very nice work with those BTR-60's. ;)

Long time since I posted any work. Here is the FAP 1118. I want to tanks to MarKhan and Dragan1212 who made the first versions of FAP 1118.

The standard FAP 1118BS/AV 4x4 lorry is introduced in Serbian Army in 2011. It is plan that this model replace older TAM vehicles from Serbian Army inventory.

There are several versions of FAP 1118BS/AV with specialized tasks. This one is equipped with "SANIJET" NBC kit for decontamination.

The CVOJ M-11 is mobile air surveillance center based on FAP 1118BDS/AV chassis with longer cab for artillery crew. The launch tubes are on modular containers, and launcher can launch different types of rockets by switching containers. It can fire 128mm Oganj, 128mm Plamen, 122mm Grad and 107mm rockets. The transloader vehicle is based on standard FAP 1118BS/AV with crane for switching of containers.

LRSVM Morava is modular self-propelled multiple rocket launcher. It is based on FAP 1118BDS/A

Excellent set of trucks, Nestin! As usual!


A very elusive to the cameras cuban MRAP, based in the common KraZ 255 truck.
[ img ]
It was (or is, I don't have clear if the model is still in service) called Paquito by the troops and media, but I don´t know if it is an official name. At least two vehicles are armed with a turret with twin ZU-23 guns, and at leas another is a command vehicle with canvas roof.
Credits: I used Caddaric´s well drawn KraZ truck. Cheers.

Good morning, gentlemen!
Thanks, Eswube! Since the last year, I was searching for a picture of an camera shy cuban vehicle (it is called "Paquito" and it was a local adaptation of the KraZ 255 truck with armour and a twin 23 gun turret and a V shaped floor, it was used in Angola in the 1980s, but I don´t know the specs or the combat record of this early MRAP), but I found instead several other interesting systems made with recycled materiel, so I am uploading the first of them:
[ img ]
This one, called in Djibouti BTR-60 H-90 was done from 12 ex-iraqui APCs and the turret of AML-90s.
[ img ]
And this is BTR-60-73M, done from the large stocks of soviet APCs and turrets from BMP-1 (the chassis was perhaps be used for making a turretless tank hunter with the smooth bore T12 gun), as seen during the Military Parade of 2014 at Havana.
Credits: The starting vehicle was Caddaric´s excellent BTR drawing, in the former the turret is from Cplnew´s AML-90 drawing, and in the later, the turret is also from a Caddaric´s drawing. Thanks to both of you. Cheers.

P.S. There is a lot of recycled equipment in the recent war in Syria. Some of these systems looks directly to the past (1960s, coupling T-34 or T-55/55 chassis with several gun/howitzers; or BTR-1502/50/60 with any turret or gun available), but others seems to have been inspired in an apocalyptical future (Mad Max).
According to Tank Encyclopeda one BTR-60 was converted after an AML-90 that was knocked out

Good evening. A nice (probably the most aesthetic light tank of the era) light tank / infantry SP gun from Sweden, the neat, fast, amphibious and hard hiting IKV-91.
[ img ]

Credits: I modeled the wheeles of my drawing from the wheels of Darth Panda's swedish APC (both vehicles shared the same wheels). Cheers.

Good evening, guys:
A well known soviet vehicle of the early years of the Cold War: BTR-40.
[ img ]
It apeared in 1950, first as an open topped vehicle and in 1957 with an armoured roof and NBC protection. In the former version it was present during the soviet invasion of Hungary in 1956, as depicted here. It was in every soviet equiped arab army, and was captured in substantial numbers by the Tzahal in 1956 and 1967, being used against their former masters during the War of Attrition and in October 1973. It was also used by Cuba at Pigs Bay (bahia de Cochinos, thanks Caddaric!) and in Angola; in the mid 1970s, the cubans mated this vehicle with the AT-2 Swatter AT missile and created the Jabali (boar) tank hunter.
Credits: I tried to mimic Andrzei13´s ZPU sights and aiming devices, and also Flank 81´s Swatter missile. Thanks to both of them. Cheers.

Good evening guys:
A long range north korean spg: the Koksan.
[ img ]
A T-54, T-55 or T-59 chassis mated with an open toped heavy gun of a rather strange caliber, 170 mm, it can reach Seoul from the DMZ using RAP ammo. In two versions: M-1978 (first seen in 1985) and M-1989. It was also by the iranians in the first Gulf War.
Credits: Very few specs of this vehicle are available. The most "hard" reference for scaling down the drawing is the length of the track in contact with the ground, so I used Caddaric's excellent T-55 tank drawing as the starting line. Thanks to him. Cheers.
