There are cheaper ones, but they are missing parts I can't find replacement parts for.You should be able to get a Bradley far cheaper than $189!! I've seen them on eBay in the $20-$50 range. You don't need MIB either since you're gonna be doing all sorts of stuff to it.
Those prices are all kits from Shapeways. I'm gonna consult with Picklhaube first and see if he can do it cheaper.That certainly looks like an awesome improvement on the original! Not sure about the investment though. That's a lot of cheddar. Is that a kit (you add) cost, or a how to/what it costs?
My story is that this was an earlier M1A2, which ended up keeping it. Despite getting the turret mounted one anyway. Government redundancy!Looks very cool! Only question I have is why the extra APU hanging off the back? I thought those had all been moved onto the back of the turret on the A2s and beyond.
This one is one that had served in Iraq/Syria, before being shipped to the Pacific theater for a conflict with the PLA and quickly repainted from desert flat tan to what you see now. As such, it still has the TUSK upgrades, but shouldn't have much to worry about in a tropical island environment.Ah, that's plausible. It's just that the Abrams has a big rear end anyway, and the Tusk being an urban warfare upgrade, you'd think priority would be on making it as maneuverable as possible in tighter spaces.
