Is that picture a urine take or has someone fitted a CVR(T) Turret onto the mortar hatches?

I know there is an infantry variant but certainly not with that type of turret.

Unless of course..you know different

I must admit I thought the 432 turret was a much smaller item, i'll have to check my sad sad collection of recognition pics....

they had a variant at warminster for "enemy" with a turret bolted on, it wasnt functional tho

I believe the Berlin Bde had a few with turrets. Anyone confirm?

It's a pukka 43 though;




The Berlin Bde versions appear to have had Scorpion Turrets with 76mm gun as well as 30mm Rarden Scimitar stylee or was it a Fox turret?

According to my 2ic, each platoon of the Berlin Bn in the '80s had one of those 432s modified with a fox turret. Only in Berlin, though, because they were too high profile for use elsewhere.

Sounds like "mlaaaaaaaaaaaaar" to me when he says it but no doubt it will make sense to you gents.




Edited re: The-Hog, to include that they were apparently called 432/30s...?
