Leopard Mk.2 Mine Resistant Light Combat Vehicle
About this creation
After much use of the Leopard Mk.1, Canadian troops realized that the original Leopard, even though it could sustain much light arms fire, just couldn't resist a mine detonation right under it. So, the engineers at CanArms Co. took the original Leopard model and added extra armor. The side doors were put out and replaced by angled armor to delfect the mines' blow. The result: the new Leopard Mk.2 Mine Resistant Light Combat Vehicle (MRLCV) was significantly heavier than its older cousin. Consequently, the engineers replaced the older engine with anew hybrid diesel-electric engine, giving it a top speed of 70 mph.
The 30mm auto cannon was replaced by a Browning 12.7mm machine gun on a remote-controlled turret. The turret can also be adapted to fit 40mm grenade launchers, anti-tank TOW rockets or a mortar.

Specs:
Crew: 2 (Driver and Gunner) + 4 passengers
Weight: 20 tons
Top speed: 65 mph
Armament: 1x 12.7mm Browning machine gun
Operators: United Canadian Army, Canadian Marines, Canadian SAS

Wow,really epic details on a small scale, well done in achieving that; not many people can. I would love to see your models in real life, maybe you should buy them, or buy the bricks for them from bricklink. I would especially like to see this one in real bricks. I'd say join a military vehicles group if you haven't already and build more stuff like this little beast. Keep it Up!

Pretty good, I definitely see CCAV in it. I love the angles you managed to get, and the turret is quite nice too. Sweet job.
