Meng 1/35 French AUF1 TA 155mm Self Propelled Howitzer
The AUF1 TA is the latest version of AUF1 155mm self-propelled howitzer produced by the French GIAT Industries under the requirement of the General Directorate for Armament (Direction g..n..rale de larmement, DGA) at the beginning of this century. In order to keep up with the trend of global self-propelled gun development after the Cold War, the AUF1 TA has significant improvements on the fire-control and power systems. It...s fitted with a brand-new ATLAS fire-control system which makes the howitzer superior to the AUF1 on the rate and accuracy of fire. It...s an advanced gun as good as the world-class howitzers like the U.S. M109, British AS-90 and German PzH2000 in the term of gun performance. The three additional antenna bases on the top of the turret are an important feature for recognizing the AUF1 TA turret.
