as seen at PMMS (where else?), the Soviet rocket guntruck,http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/n ... s/kfs.html. It is mentioned as being used to protect convoys in Afghanistan, does anyone have a photograph to back that up? I've searched the web researching Russian/ Soviet subjects in Afghanistan, but have not come across any.

The technical looks very well done, too.

thank you,

Kylie

The link is to a British 5.5" howitzer, which KFS are making to tow behind their Matador, both in 1/24th. I'm fairly sure KFS (who are well established in the 1/24th truck market in the UK) are only producing models of British prototypes at present.
