    Very nice, @typhoon353
    Here is a M1117 Guardian ASV.

    The Canadian TAPV is essentially an up-armored version of the same vehicle.
    Do we have a Finnish Patria?

    @Tanelorn I don't think I've seen one before. I recall making a wishlist of modern IFVs some time ago which included the very similar Stryker and VBCI, hopefully some of them will get around to being filled. Making a few attempts myself:

    Based on a @Fairline original and @Broken_Erika s LAV, first attempt for the Finnish Patria requested back in 2015.
    The main operator is Poland (1197 Rosomak vehicles). Also used by Finland itself, Sweden, the UAE, South Africa, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia and has been used in Afganistan, Yemen and Chad.

    Awesome! Better late than never! :p

    Would you be willing to swing at the Ukrainian BTU-3 and BTU-4 I'd brought up a while ago (though this one was this year)?

    Compilation of old and new French post-War armour. I've included a mild tweak of Typhoon's excellent AMX-10P - hope he's alright with that!

    I not only approve but also welcome more such tweaks and compilations :goodjob:

    Quick and dirty K2 - a highly advanced South Korean tank that has been offered to Norway and Poland for export and forms the basis of Turkey's indigenous Altay project:

    The Wikipedia article on this (last I read - it may have been updated or edited since, I'll check in a bit) made this out to be more of a, "self-propelled gun." Is there some hybrid role, or alternative models, or just a Wiki contributor error?

    Ah, here's the source of my confusion.

    K2 Black Panther - Wikipedia
    K9 Thunder - Wikipedia

    I had just woken up, read @typhoon353's post, and recalled the K9 article as a K2 article. Don't mind me. :confused:

    Excellent!

    I'm planing to make a few 8-wheeled APCs to go with the VBCI - Boxer and Stryker spring to mind. Has anyone already made these?

    As time passes, fairline's pixel skills have reached a refinement that is without peer.

    I believe the saturation of his talent has led to the great majority of units used in SL scenarios for the last several years - outside, "terrain," "hazard," and very unusual custom units, having the, "GB," initials in the lower corner.

    Thanks. Couldn't find a Boxer unit so drew a few. I didn't come across good pics of the Netherlands version; does anyone have any?

    I'm thinking of drawing the Stryker, BTR-90 and ZBL-09 if these haven't been drawn already.

    Out of curiosity, is the vehicle named after the sport fighter, the breed of dog, or something else.

    Although, they seem to use the same camo as the German ones.....

    The light twin turbine engine helicopter Bo 105 was developed by German industry in the early 70s and it has been set up to perform either civil or military purposes.Its main advantage is high flight maneuverability. The armed version for German Army named PAH-1 was armed with the wire-guided Euromissile HOT ATGM. Produced from the ‘70s to the first years of 2000, the Bo 105 achived commercial success and equipped the armies of several countries.
    @Fairline Very nice! Will you do the new Britsh Ajax now?

    Thanks Erika; yeah I was interested in an isometric view if any exist (should have been more specific). Also, I think I read somewhere that the Dutch had specified a different turret for the Boxer, or was that maybe Lithuania? I'll look it up!

    Very nice T!

    As for the Ajax, at the current time it's a disaster area that's unlikely to be introduced into service. The vehicle has major noise and vibration issues and is undrivable for more than 30 minutes without disabling it's crew! :D

    Who knows. I'm sure someone at Rheinmetall can let you know...
