AV8- The What If 2
Further to my initial post, my fellow forumer at Mymil Mr Dewafrost had said that in his discussion with DEFTECH's representative during the recent Air Force Open Day in Kuantan, he was informed that there has been a proposal for the AV8's to use Oto Melara's turrets. These are the result of his Photoshopping the available turrets onto the V8 frame.
Meanwhile the photos below are the result of other turrets as suggested by other forumers.
And this is another turret from Russia, that even though it looks very utilitarian, is my personal favourite as it can provide three type of lethal treatment. Nonetheless this has not been commercially sold yet but since Malaysia has a track record of being pioneer buyers, why not eh?
Nonetheless to bring back the topic of discussion into serious focus. The posting of the what if photos may seem indulgent bordering on childishness, but the reason I did it is to show the versatility of the platform itself, which if the final design is optimally chosen, can provide a very lethal weaponry combination to an indigenously built fighting platform that nobody should sneer at.
