I like the kit and I like the name that honours Canada's indigenous tank.

Personally one old tradition I can get behind is the animal names for vehicles, Lav 6 doesn't have the greatest ring.

Well, Lav 3 was called "Kodiak" but it never seemed to stick.

Question; does putting the throttle all the way down automatically constitute ramming speed on this vehicle?

Nice to see our engineers are still on the hoof though, but we'll have to be careful to sort the sheep from the goats as far as the parts system goes, or we'll all get the horns.

I think track width would be detrimental to the curbs.

Looks like enough room .... remember the curbs hang over the top panel and tilt outwards

But maybe they would rattle too much.... ;D

Leopard 2 variants do fit between the MGB curbs. But if the tank is not lined up right (which it needs to be regardless of there being curbs or not) then the curbs make a loud “ping” when shot into the river as the tank struggles to nudge itself back onto the treadway.

Sort of what I meant. End connectors can hang over the side without the tank falling in the drink.
