MENG Models have built up their latest Russian AFV vehicle and given us some preview info to show you – the kit is now out so we thought it would be nice to show you their built up version and some of it’s features…
GAZ-233014 is the military variant of GAZ-2330 “Tiger” high-mobility vehicles which resemble the design of U.S. "Humvee” and are therefore called the “Russian Humvee”. The Russian army adopted the vehicle into service in 2007. The “Tiger” has outstanding mobility and its average cross-country speed can be as high as 120-140km/h. It accommodates 6 people including the driver, co-driver as well as 4 special force soldiers. There is a rotatable hatch on top of the roof. A“AGS-17” 30mm automatic grenade launcher and a “Pecheneg” 7.62mm machine gun can be installed on sides of the hatch for two members to operate at the same time. Meanwhile, there are a large number of rounds of ammunition and RPG anti-tank rocket launchers stored in the cabin.
