Stryker Surface Mine Plow - which one is best?

Hi guys,

I'm considering getting either the Trumpeter or AFV Club Stryker ESV with SMP, as I want to use the SMP with my CV90 (mount's slightly different, but same plow). I've discounted the Blast one as on their site they want 70 for it, but which plastic one is the better one?

Thanks,

Olaf

My Styker from AFV has so many parts...............
But they all go together perfectly, I was amazed.
Only thing extra to buy are the poles that go on the plow. Some sort of indicator poles I guess.
Others can shed more detail on them.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the rapid feedback. I'll see if I can find one for a semi-decent price...

Cheers,

Olaf

Hi Olaf,
in which theatre is the CV90 used with this plough? A`stan? Are there any pictures available of the CV90 with the plough within the net?

Thank you!

Andreas,

I have exactly one photo of a Swedish non-deployed vehicle with it mounted, in the CV90 book from the Swedish Armour Historical Society.

At least not the AFV Club one. Their separate set only includes extra parts like springs and chains etc., but not the plow itself.

Pawel is right, unfortunately I'd have to buy the whole kit... (n/t)
