I wonder how many BMP-3 releases they'll do? So many have been issued so far. Hopefully they'll get around to doing the ARV.

Hi Everybody; The BTR-70 was Released by Dragon Many Years ago, with the same AGS-17 mounted on the Turret, I wonder if they are just Re-boxing DML's old Molds. I sure hope Not !!! The BMP-3 used by UAE was one of there First released kits of this Vehicle, now lets see; this makes four or is it Five !! But its about on Par with them as they did the same with the T-62, T-64 etc; AND WHILE I am Trumpeter Thumping was Up with the T-72M4cz Ive Got Too Tell SANTA Something !!!!!! CHEERS; MIKE.

Mike, why would they rebox the olde and ugly DML BTR-70 kit, when they already have the excellent base of their previous BTR-70's? The AGS-17 seems to be an ubiquitous choice for an Afghanistan versión, so its not strange that they also chose it... I believe they'll also release the add-on armored version sooner than later.
