Quote from: kustenjaeger on 29 July 2022, 10:10:46 AMI know there was some discussion about Israeli specialist halftracks being added but I don't know if these are built on the existing castings?

The new M3s are all fresh designs, done digitally, so they'll match in with the BMP-1 sizing.

Just to be pedantic (how suprising) most Isralie 1/2 Tracks were M5/M9 they came from our reserve stocks in the early 60's.

True, but didn't the Israelis retain the M3 designation for them?

Looks great, Leon.  Any idea on timing?

I can see an IDF and Egyptian army pack order in my future.

Not long, they've all been printed and are going into master moulds on Tuesday.  We're away at Claymore next weekend and then taking a couple of days off so we're probably looking at about 3 weeks?

That's faster than I'd expected!  😃

Are there plans for more M48s? Obviously you've got M50/M51 and Sho't Kal/Sho't Meteor and M60 but I seem to remember a post about the old M48 needing to be redone (and if it's an original 90mm M48A3 that would work for 1967 but not for the 105mm Magach 3 that's (I think) very close to an M48A5.

No plans at the moment, so just the existing M48A3 for now.

Thats not too surprising - the 48A5 is modeled on the Isralie upgrades.
