I know this will sound funny but just as a modelling view this new turret doesn't feel/look like a U.S version. Something about it makes me feel it look more German or use for another country. I have read the history about it so I am not talking facts just going on looks alone. I thought Trumpeter would be first on something like this.

The turret is designed by Kongsberg Defense of Norway, the company also makes the M151 Remote Weapon Station that is currently on the Stryker. It is known as the ’PROTECTOR’ Medium Caliber Remote Weapon Station (MCRWS). General Dynamics Land Systems is license building them for the Stryker Dragoon.

Great news! In fact, I'm waiting for news about modern armored vehicles, mostly only from the Panda. They offer an excellent line of modern stuff. I hope to see RG-33L soon, which they announced a long time ago. I hope someone will offer a Typhoon-U kit someday. Well, to the Panda, I always had a complaint about the awkward interlocking of the details and some haze of casting.

Yes, generally with Panda I find the level of accuracy and detail is very nice, but the engineering is not so hot. I just acquired their 'retooled' M-ATV and while it definitely looks sharper than the original, I think it'll still need a reasonable amount of clean-up and TLC to go together. But it should look excellent once done. I think Kitty Hawk planes have a similar reputation.
