The Aktros weapons platform

To accomondate the planned vehicles for the 8th Armored, I want to design a "one-fits-all" weapons platform. This will be the base for the

  • Main Battle Tank
  • Tank Destroyer (Jagdpanzer)
  • Recovery vehicle (Bergepanzer)

and maybe some extras like a Bridge vehicle, an Air Defense Vehicle, and an Artillery.
So here are the first images of the Aktros:

Here is the base hull, that I will use for all Aktros. As you can see it is a bit longer than a Leman Russ, but about the same width.

The engine deck for the MBT

The MBT deck with the openings for the turret, driver and bow gunner.

This is the superstructure for the Jagd-Aktros ind comparison to the MBT.

The Jagd-Aktros will be armed with a heavy Bolter and a Vanquisher gun.

This is a quick "blue tack" mount of the gun.

This is now the recovery vehicle, the Berge-Aktros.

It will have a crane, two spades (front and rear), a large toolbox, and some other stuff.

This is the base beam to which the crane will be mounted.
Here are the three superstructures in comparison.
