Sabre - Frankton Thunder 2017
« on: March 15, 2017, 02:34:17 PM »
Part of the AMCT display at Frankton Thunder 2017 was their Sabre – Scorpion hull, with Fox Amoured car turret mounted in place of the Scorpion Turret. The turret mounts a Rarden 30mm cannon, fires 3 shot bursts, with a chain gun coax.
The Fox turret is significantly shallower than the Scorpion turret, so sits on a plinth between the hull & turret to give sufficient space for the turret crew. The plinth also provides a good recognition feature.

I didn’t take much in the way of general pics, as I wanted to do the detail thing, to help with my Scorpion build
