Warrior Mechanized Combat Vehicle was developed in mid-1970s by GKN Defense for the British Army. In 1978 a parallel evaluation of the American M2 Bradley IFV took place. The following year full development of the Warrior started parallel with continued study of the M2 Bradley. Production of Warrior began in January 1986. The hull of Warrior is of all-welded aluminum construction, and the turret of Warrior has vertical sides with long barrel 30mm RARDEN cannon with 7.62mm L94A1 Chain Gun mounted in external mantlet. For operations in the Middle East and Bosnia, the Warrior was fitted with additional armor protection. Academy revamped its Warrior with newly added tooling, bringing this kit to a new level of realism. An entire sprue of over 80 detailed parts will put this kit on modelers want list. Comes with accurately reproduced hull and turret, engine deck, fully assembled rubberized track, and precise suspension system. Mark it with authentic decals from Iraq 2003 as well as Bosnia 1995. Plastic cement and paint are required for assembly, and are sold separately.

When Germany moved into Czechoslovakia in 1939, it seized its military assets as well as their production facilities including Skoda. One of the tanks in production at that time was the Model 35 light tank which was adopted by the Wehrmacht as the Panzer 35(t) - the t was the abbreviation for the foreign material source - tschechisch (Czech). Like many other combat vehicles in use by the Wehrmacht, some Panzer 35(t)s were modified to serve as command tanks which allowed for command and control of the Blitz on the battlefield. Tank-to-tank communications were accomplished by a common radio set in each Panzer 35(t), but to reach higher level command elements, a second radio set (HF) was installed in the command tanks in place of some ammo storage. These HF radio sets allowed for non-line-of-sight communications and they usually used a towel-rack antenna (sometimes referred to as a clothes line). On the Panzer 35(t), this antenna was mounted to the rear deck and limited turret traverse.
