BMD Weapons Carrier

     Country of Origin Russia (Soviet Union)

     Real World/Merc 2000 Notes:  This vehicle does not exist in real life; it was made up by the good people at GDW. In Merc 2000, the conditions that led to its creation did not exist.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: The BMD Weapons Carrier is the same vehicle as the BMD-1 but with the turret removed. Two AGS-17 grenade launchers are on either side of the space where the turret used to be, and two PK machinegun mounts have been fitted, one on the bow firing forward and another on the rear deck firing to the rear. The driver's hatch is still on the front deck, and the place where the turret was is now open-topped.

BMP-40

     Country of Origin: Poland

     Notes:  As of 2008, this is still being shopped around and is not in production or service.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: The BMP-40 was a rushed project of the Polish military in 1997 to produce an armored personnel carrier that could be used for a multitude of tasks (air defense, personnel escort, etc.).  The basic frame was patterned on the BMP-1, which the Polish military had quantities of to examine and use as a test bed for the BMP-40.  The primary cannon was copied from the Swedish CV 9040 vehicle.  Because it uses the Swedish 40mm cannon the turret is a larger model than seen on the BMP-1; as such, the overall troop capacity is reduced from 8 to 6.  Wartime models were seen with mounts using AGS-17 grenade launchers and/or AT-5 Spandrel ATGM weapons.  The Steel Works of Stalow Wola was the primary manufacturer of this design, and allied air bombing of this facility hurt production of the BMP-40.  As such only some 70 models are known to have been produced prior to the November nuclear strikes.  Some models are reported to have been equipped with lugs for explosive reactive armor (TF, TS, HF, HS), and some have been equipped with appliqué armor similar to that of other BMP models.   The ammunition for the 40mm gun was patterned after the 40mm Swedish ammunition, but was often difficult to obtain during the war amidst other Pact vehicles.

BWP-2000

     Country of Origin: Poland

     Notes:  The BWP-2000 is a heavily armed IFV based on an MT-S tracked prime mover chassis and an Italian-designed turret and an autocannon of Israeli design.  The hull and turret are all-welded, with no rivets to pop loose when the vehicle is hit.  Lugs for ERA are fitted to the HF, HS, TF, and TS.  The driver is at the front left, and the commander and gunner have hatches on the turret roof.  Image intensification is provided for the commander, thermal imaging for the gunner, and passive IR for the driver.  The commander also has a monitor to his front to see what the gunner sees in his thermal sight.  TOW II missiles were obtained from Italy and copied, then fitted to the turret, which is a modified form of the turret mounted on the VCC-80 IFV.  The rear of the vehicle has a power ramp with a hatch in it, and there are two large circular hatches in the troop compartment roof.  Two firing ports are on each side of the vehicle.  As of 2000, this vehicle is still a prototype and there are no plans to produce it.

Cobra

     Country of Origin: Belgium

     Notes: This small tracked APC was not adopted by any country, but I included it here as a “what-if.”  It is similar in concept to carriers such as the M-113, being a “bare box” sort of APC.  It does have some interesting features, such as the positions for two drivers in the front hull to help relieve driver fatigue.  They both have a bow-mounted machinegun to fire when they are not driving.  In addition, there are three launchers on each side of the glacis for Mecar rifle grenades; these are not usable for direct fire, but may be launched in the indirect fire mode.  The vehicle has a small turret on top mounting an M-2HB machinegun and twin 101mm rocket launchers.  There is a hatch in the roof to the rear of the turret for reloading the rocket launchers.  The interior is very cramped, especially when carrying a full complement of infantrymen.  The infantrymen enter through a door in the rear of the hull.

Experimental Bradleys

     Country of Origin: United States

     Notes: Almost on the heels of the introduction of the Bradley, studies began to upgrade the firepower of the Bradley.  These studies were based on what the perceived opposition on the European battlefield would be at the time – and the belief that the BMP series was more heavily protected than was actually true.  (It turned out that the 25mm M-242 ChainGun, especially with advancements in ammunition technology in the intervening years, would prove to be much more effective than thought – Desert Storm and Iraq have showed that the M-242 is actually a pretty effective weapon, even against some tanks and fortifications.) 

     One of the first of these experimental up-gunned vehicles was based on the M-2 Bradley, under the CVAST (Combat Vehicle Armament System Technology) program.  A 35mm ARES Talon autocannon (originally designed for the Eagle air defense system, but with new ammunition, adapted for armored vehicles) was installed in a new cleft turret; this essentially split the turret into two parts, with the commander on the left side and the gunner on the right.  The cleft turret was used to get around what would otherwise be an unacceptable rise in the height of the already-tall Bradley profile.  The cleft turret also allowed the M-2 CVAST to lower the height of the vehicle by over half a meter, making it short enough to be air-transported in a C-130 aircraft.  The cleft turret was additionally better-protected than a standard Bradley turret, and had wedge-shaped sides all around the turret.  The interior was designed to minimize the vulnerability of the turret crew (in particular, in the case of a turret penetration on one side of the turret).  The TOW box was modified to allow it to be used with the wedge-shaped side; it was in the same position as a standard Bradley, on the right side, but it did not pivot up and down except for loading (and pivoted only 45 degreed for loading).  The fire control systems were essentially the same as those on a standard M-2 Bradley, but better-stabilized.  The hull of the M-2 CVAST was essentially unchanged, except for minimal modifications necessary to mount the new turret.  The M-2 CVAST proved to be an excellent vehicle that the testing crews raved about, but Pentagon interest had already moved on to a new autocannon using newly-developed CTA (Case-Telescoped Ammunition) under the COMVAT program (see below).

     The COMVAT (Combat Vehicle Armament Technology) program was also based primarily on the chassis of the M-2 (though a few used the M-2A1 chassis), but unlike the CVAST turret, the COMVAT turret was a partially-modified version of the standard Bradley turret instead of a new turret.  The COMVAT turret modifications centered around the new main gun, which used new CTA (Case-Telescoped Ammunition).  The COMVAT’s CTA (developed by ARES) uses a payload assembly that is seated entirely within the cartridge case; when the round is fired, a small booster charge is first ignited to propel the payload assembly a short ways into the gun barrel, at which point a combustible-case main propellant charge did the main work of sending the round to the target.  A CTA cartridge is therefore lighter and more compact than standard ammunition, allowing a vehicle to carry more rounds for its main gun.  The gun, also designed by ARES, uses a rotating breech, simplifies the gun’s mechanism, making it more reliable and increasing the cyclic rate of fire (though not enough to increase the ROF by the Twilight 2000 v2.2 rules; the ROF would end up to be about 6).  The initial CTA gun used 30mm ammunition, but this was quickly up-gunned to 45mm, and later a gun that could be switched between 45mm and 60mm with a barrel change and the change of a few other parts.  A few versions of Bradley COMVATs were also tested with casemate turrets, with the commander and gunner seated inside the vehicle behind the gunner.  In the end, the primary stumbling block seem to have been the lack of desire on the part of the Army’s supply system to introduce a new family of ammunition, and the Pentagon’s lack of desire to pay for it.  However, rumors are that the gun is still being experimented with.

     Some less drastic firepower upgrades were also proposed, using larger versions of the M-242 Bushmaster ChainGun already used on the Bradley.  Most of the experiments with these up-gunned Bradleys were based on the M-2A2 chassis and turret.  The 30mm Bushmaster II weighs little more than the M-242 and can be installed in a Bradley turret with almost no modification.  Though not tested, the 35mm Bushmaster III, the 40mm Bushmaster IV, and the 50mm Bushmaster SuperShot were also proposed for the Bradley.  All but the 30mm gun would have required a great degree of turret and vehicle modifications – not because of the gun itself, but to with the increased need for ammunition stowage and the increased weight of this stowage and the ammunition itself.  The proposals for up-gunning the Bradley using these ChainGuns were rejected not only on a cost basis, but due to experience in Desert Storm and Iraq that showed the M-242 was more effective than previously thought.

Landmaster

     Country of Origin: United States

     Notes:  This is the vehicle featured in the movie Damnation Alley, but there is no real vehicle except for Hollywood wizardry.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: Designed for survival in the most hostile of elements, the Landmaster was a limited-production vehicle designed by USAF Missile Command in late 1998 using locally available components.  The base chassis is a heavy truck, and the Landmaster uses a unique "trinary" wheel suspension.  Each of the axles is connected to a pair of three roadwheel sets, with two of the set touching the ground.  As the front-most wheel of the set contacts an insurmountable obstacle, it flips to the rear and over the obstacle, therefore bypassing it.  This leads to high off-road speeds for a vehicle of its size, and the ability to overcome a vertical obstacle of over 1 meter in size.

     The Landmaster is equipped with a dual control system, much like an airplane cabin.  Control of the vehicle may be made by one or both of these controls, depending on the requirements of the terrain and weather.  The vehicle is equipped with at least three military and one civilian "CB" radio.  The vehicle is equipped with night vision for the forward cabin and the gunner's position.  The Landmaster is equipped with both ground surveillance and ground-to-air radar.  There is an external video camera and a shotgun microphone, as well as a PA system.  The video equipment can use the night vision gear.  The vehicle has a complete navigation suite, from simple downloadable computerized maps to inertial navigation and GPS.  There are bunks for half the crew to sleep in at once, a small galley, a large refrigerator and freezer, an internal latrine, and a shower, fed by a 400-liter water tank.  Also included are a water filtration system for decontaminating and desalinating local water, the equivalent of three doctor's medical bags, and a complete set of tools, including an air compressor and a welding and cutting set. 

     The Landmaster has a large hatch in the front and rear deck, hatches on either side of the forward cabin, and a large hatch in the rear.  The rockets used in the forward rocket launchers are the same as used in the M-67 recoilless rifle, but the rocket launchers are magazine-fed.  The weapons can be controlled either from a gunner's position or from the forward cabin.

M-2A3 Bradley III

     Country of Origin: United States                                                                          

     Notes: This vehicle does not exist in real life. There is in fact going to be (or already is by now) a version of the Bradley known as the M-2A3, but this is not it.  This version was made up by the Twilight 2000 designers at GDW, though I have come up with more back story.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: In late 1995, as existing M-2 and M-2A1 Bradleys in US service began to be gathered and replaced by M-2A2s, TACOM fitted the older Bradleys with a new turret and appliqué armor.  Fire control was also improved. In many cases, components designed for the M-2A2 were actually retrofitted to the M-2A3.  Lugs were added for reactive armor to the HS and F faces of the vehicle.

     These modified Bradleys were designated M-2A3, and were then reissued to replace battle losses in Europe, the Middle East, and Korea.  However, the lion's share of these new variants were issued to units fighting the Mexicans and Russians in the American Southwest, Pacific Northwest, and Alaska, due to problems with transporting them to farther locales.  In the M-2A3, the standard turret is replaced with one mounting twin Hellfire ATGMs instead of the standard TOW II launchers, one launcher on each side of the turret.  Three subtypes of the M-2A3 were built:  The M-2A3E1, with a standard 25mm ChainGun; the M-2A3E2, with a 30mm ChainGun, and the M-2A3E3, armed with a 35mm ChainGun. 

     Merc 2000 Notes: This vehicle does not exist in the Merc 2000 timeline.

M-113: US Experimental Variants

     Country of Origin: United States

     Notes: These are experimental APC versions of the M-113 built by the US.  Some existed only on the drawing board, some were built only as prototypes or demonstrators, and some almost made it into production, only to be cut at the last moment or be overtaken by new technology.

 

Stretched M-113A1

     Based on the M-113A1, the Stretched M-113A1 was designed primarily as a combat resupply vehicle, with the increased interior room to be used for cargo.  However, lengthened versions of the standard passenger seats were installed down the sides, and another secondary consideration was to use the Stretched M-113A1 as a forward command post vehicle or as a prime mover for towed artillery pieces.  The Stretched M-113A1 was extended in length over half a meter, adding some 2 cubic meters of cargo space.  In addition, the suspension was beefed up, nearly doubling the cargo capacity, and the Stretched M-113A1 had seven roadwheels on each side.  The rear deck cargo hatch was also enlarged and turned into a two-piece unit; these hatches hinge upwards in the middle, and include overhead cover supported by poles to form overhead cover/sunshade.  The rear hatch was also slightly enlarged.  The Stretched M-113A1 did not go into production, but the concept would appear again in the early 1990s as the MTVL (based on the M-113A3), and several prototypes were built for evaluation. 

 

XM-734 MICV

     Also known as the MICV-65, the XM-734 was one of the first steps on the road to the M-2/M-3 Bradley.  The XM-734, though visibly based on the M-113A1, was also visibly quite different.  The first step was to allow the infantrymen to fight from inside armor protection.  Four sets of firing ports were installed on the right side, and three on the left (due to the fuel tank positioning); two more were installed in the rear ramp, one of which was in the door.  Firing ports could accept standard M-16A1s, M-1911 pistols, or the M-3A1 submachinegun. Armor protection was increased somewhat with sheet steel appliqué.  A more powerful 260-horsepower was installed, along with a matching transmission.  The conventional commander's station was replaced with a small turret; several armament configurations were tried, but the last and most heavily-armed variant used an M-139 20mm autocannon with an M-219 7.62mm machinegun as a coaxial weapon.  A very few XM-734s were combat-tested in Vietnam. The XM-734 could still carry 11 troops, but it was a tight squeeze (it could even carry 12 with an even tighter squeeze, but it was not recommended).  The XM-734 was thought to be promising, but not promising enough, and research continued.

 

XM-765

     The XM-765 began development in 1967, and several variants were built (differing mostly in armament and cupolas) into several forms before finally being canceled in 1970 in favor of a further modified version called the M-113A1PI.  The program came to an end in the US in the early 1970s, but by then several European countries had taken an interest in the M-113A1PI design, and it became the AIFV (covered in other sections).

     The XM-765 retained the power pack, suspension, and tracks of the M-113A1, but the hull was heavily modified.  The passenger compartment took on a radically different form, with the upper hull sides being sloped at an angle of about 30 degrees and fitted with four firing ports on each side, along with two in the rear ramp.  The firing ports could accept any M-16 rifle or the M-3A1 submachinegun.  The front and side armor was increased in effectiveness by incorporating spaced armor.  A 379-liter fuel tank was installed under the floor of the passenger compartment, replacing the fuel tanks in the M-113A1's walls.  A new commander's cupola was installed, armed with a 20mm M-139 autocannon that could be aimed and fired (but not reloaded) from under armor.

     Some of the biggest strikes against the XM-765 were inadequate power and range for the increased weight.  This caused an ill-advised reduction in armor protection, especially the spaced armor.  The cupola and the weapon mount were retained, but the weapon was replaced with an M-2HB machinegun.  The bench seats running down the center of the passenger compartment were replaced by rotating individual seats, with two being added for the ramp gunners.  Two additional ventilation fans were also added for the passenger compartment.

 

PI M-113A1

     The PI (Product-Improved) M-113A1 was a test vehicle built in 1970 aimed at increasing the M-113A1’s firepower and survivability.  The survivability improvements consisted of bolt-on spaced laminate steel armor, with the spaces between the armor panels being filled with polyurethane foam to allow the M-113A1 to retain its amphibious capability; a high-displacement trim vane also assisted with this.  The fuel tanks were moved to the rear of the vehicle, and protected on the outer sides by the new spaced armor; the rest of the tanks were also protected by increased steel armor.

     The sides of the hull were heavily-modified based on experience with the XM-765, with three vision blocks on each side of the hull in a sloping armor section.  Experience with the XM-765 showed that only two troops could properly fire through firing ports on each side of the vehicle, so the third man on each side had only a vision block, without a firing port.  In the rear ramp was another firing port with a vision block. Seats were provided for ten passengers, one of which was the commander. The commander had his own cupola behind that of the gunner's station; this cupola was unarmed, but had a 6x binocular scope along with seven vision blocks.  There was no rear deck roof hatch. 

     The cupola was replaced with one that had a lower silhouette; this cupola could be armed with the M-139 autocannon or an M-2HB, both of which could be fired (but not reloaded) from under armor.  The primary armament version tested was the M-139 autocannon.  The gunner also had a 6x periscope sight along with seven other standard vision blocks.

     The PI M-113A1 used a more powerful 260-horsepower engine, and the suspension beefed up to handle additional weight and improve cross-country performance. 

     The US Army decided not to develop the PI M-113A1 or the XM-765 further, but the Dutch saw promise in them, and ordered several PI M-113A1s in 1974 for extensive testing.  These Dutch test vehicles evolved into the AIFV.

M-113A1 With LAV-25 Turret

     Country of Origin: Canada

     Notes:  The M-113A1 was upgraded in such a manner at the request of the Canadian Army, but it was decided to not go ahead with upgrading the entire M-113A1 fleet.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: As an experiment, some Canadian M-113A1s were fitted with the same turret as the LAV-25.  When the Twilight War broke out, the prototypes were taken into service as the CM-113A1, and series production was begun.  These vehicles were primarily retained in the home defense role, and most were sent to the western Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Yukon, as well as the Northwest Territories to counter the Russian invasion.  These vehicles, like most Canadian LAV-25s, add a MAG for antiaircraft and anti-troop use by the commander's hatch.  Since these are modifications of older M-113s, most do not have a wear value of better than 4.  The layout is generally similar to the standard M-113, but the large hatch on the rear deck is eliminated, as with the turret mounted, there is no room for it.

M-113 Model 607

     Country of Origin: Germany

     Notes:  This is a German variant of the M-113A1, with a KUKA 607 turret mounting an M-2HB machinegun, a new engine, and a fully automatic transmission and steering yoke.  This is an upgrade proposed by FFG in 1997, but few if any of these conversions have been done for operational vehicles. 

     Twilight 2000 Notes: About 150 of these vehicles were available for the Twilight War.

     Merc 2000 Notes: The conversion program was never carried out.

M-115A1 ACCV

     Country of Origin: United States

     Notes:  This vehicle does not exist in real life; it is an invention of the designers at GDW.  I have come up with a little more back story. 

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This Armored Cavalry Combat Vehicle is originally a Canadian idea.  In the late 1980s, they began, first as an experiment, and then operationally, topping some of their M-113A2s with the same turrets used on LAV-25 wheeled armored personnel carriers.  The US Army, especially National Guard formations, borrowed this idea during the Twilight War, using them in place of the shorter-supplied M-3 Bradley Cavalry Vehicles.  The turret almost completely takes up the deck of the vehicle.
     Merc 2000 Notes: This vehicle does not exist.

M-119A1

     Country of Origin: Israel

     Notes:  The M-119A1 was originally an Israeli improved version of the M-113 ACCV, and during the war several M-113s were converted to this designation.  The vehicle’s turret mounts a 60mm HVMS autocannon to be used in bunker busting and general infantry support operations.  The M-119A1 comes standard with an improved RAPI armor system that increases its survivability against heavy machineguns and RPGs.  The vehicle became popular with American troops who liked the increased armor and heavier caliber support weapon.  The M-119A1 is often fitted with reactive armor (TF, TS, HF), and may use the M-113s appliqué hull armor.  Though technically an APC, it stretches that definition.

     The M-119A1 models deployed to the Middle Eastern theater have earned the nickname “Combat Taxis” by the troops and crews.  Some test models have been sent back to the US for analysis.

Marder 1A3/40mm

     Country of Origin: Germany

     Notes: Developed as an experiment from the standard Marder 1A3, the Marder 1A3/40mm has not been adopted by the Bundeswehr, and probably never will be due to budgetary reasons.

Twilight 2000 Notes: Just before the commencement of the Twilight War, the Germans (amongst may other countries) realized that the rather light autocannons arming most of their IFVs simply weren't going to cut the mustard.  The Germans decided to solve this problem while spending as little as possible -- they up-gunned the standard Marder 1A3 with Bofors 40mm L/70 autocannons traded and bought from the Swedes, and while they were at it, improved the night vision suite.  The result was the Marder 1A3/40mm, (sometimes referred to as the Marder 1A4, though this was a non-official appellation).  The Germans did not have time to bring the new gun's mounting and stabilization up to Marder 1A3 standards, and had to enlarge the turret to fit the Bofors gun, making the 1A3/40mm easily identifiable.  In addition, the extra weight of the new turret and gun do take away from the cargo-carrying capabilities of the vehicle, as well as making the interior a bit more cramped.  The Marder 1A3/40mm was adopted in small numbers, but never enough to satisfy the Bundeswehr, for they were quite effective at protecting their troops and dispensing with most enemy APCs.

MOWAG Improved Tornado

     Country of Origin: Switzerland

     Notes: This is an upgrade of the first Tornado.  It features an overhead mount for an autocannon, coaxial machinegun, and missile launcher.  The driver is in the front left of the hull with an overhead hatch; the commander has a small hatch in the remote turret.  The rear of the hull has a ramp.  There are two firing ports in each side of the hull and two in the rear; in addition, there are two remote machineguns on the hull deck at the rear.  This vehicle was not adopted by any country, but is still being offered by MOWAG.  It is interesting for its heavy armament, and is presented here as a “what-if.”

MOWAG Trojan

     Country of Origin: Switzerland

     Notes:  This is a tracked armored personnel carrier first produced for the requirements of the Swiss Army.  The Swiss eventually went with the CV-9030 (see Swedish APCs), but in 1992 the Finnish company Patria Vehicles bought the design and manufacturing rights, calling the vehicle the TC-500, and modified it for use in extreme temperatures (especially cold) and deep snow and ice.  The vehicle was designed to be modular for easy upgrading and easy servicing.  Add-on extra armor can be added; this weighs 4.5 tons, slows the vehicle by 10%, and costs $15,000; it adds 4 points of armor to all faces.  The vehicles were designed to use three different autocannons, and any of these may be installed in the vehicle with minimal modification in 1 hour.  The driver's hatch is on the front left, and, unlike most armored vehicles, the driver has periscopes that allow him to see over the engine on the front right when buttoned up.  There are two hatches on the turret deck for the commander and gunner, and a large drop ramp on the rear face for the passengers.  The troops have no firing ports, but there is a machinegun cupola with a periscope for suppressive fire.

Panhard VCR-2

     Country of Origin: France

     Notes: This medium wheeled APC has only been developed to the prototype stage as of yet.  It is a stretched VCR TT 2, with 8 roadwheels and about 25% larger than that vehicle.  It is being developed for the requirements of the Polish Army for a new wheeled armored personnel carrier with good cross-country performance, high road speed, and decent firepower.  Four turret choices are available, with the 25mm-armed version being the most likely to be adopted.  The VCR-2 may also be fitted with a pintle-mounted machinegun.  The layout is similar to the standard VCR TT 2, with a door in the center of the hull on each side, a hatch on the front center deck for the driver, and a large door in the rear of the vehicle for the troops.  The turret is normally a small turret with no hatch; however, the version with a pintle-mounted machinegun has a hatch in the center top deck, and the 90mm version has a hatch on the turret roof for the commander and gunner.  There are three firing ports on each side of the troop compartment.

     Twilight/Merc 2000 Notes: This vehicle does not exist.

Pbv-402

     Country of Origin: Sweden Notes: As a test, the complete turret of a CV-9040 was mounted on an MT-LB. This was done to quickly and cheaply mechanize infantry units that were foot-mobile or mounted only in trucks or light vehicles. Though the experiment was deemed substantially a success, It was deemed even cheaper to simply place those troops in overhauled MT-LBs for the time being. The Pbv-402 project was therefore put on indefinite hold, and few if any were actually fielded. (I'm not sure if "Pbv-402" is an official designation for this design; I believe that this designation was made up by Antti Hentuu, a person well known to the online Twilight 2000 community as Antenna.)   

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This vehicle was in limited production before the Twilight War, but was not adopted as a standard until 1999.  It is produced by placing the turret of a CV-90 on the hull of an MT-LB APC; often, these turrets were taken from battle-damaged CV-90s with still-functioning turrets.  Still more were purposed modified into this standard.  The vehicles were used to replace battle losses, but the real CV-90 or even the Pbv-502 was preferred over this vehicle.

     Merc 2000 Notes: This vehicle does not exist in the Merc 2000 timeline.

Pbv-502

     Country of Origin: Sweden

     Notes:  The story behind this unusual modification is similar to that of the Pbv-402.      

     Twilight 2000 Notes: In 1997, Sweden bought 350 ex-East German BMP-1 IFVs from Germany.  These vehicles were modified and upgraded; the most dramatic of these upgrades was the replacement of the 73mm cannon turret with a turret from the CV-90 IFV.  These vehicles were used to mechanize most of the remainder of Sweden's infantry forces.  The upgraded vehicles, called Pbv-502s, are similar in appearance to the Polish BMP-40, and also have new engines and transmissions installed to replace the aging power train in the BMP-1s.  Though the CV-90 was the preferred vehicle, the Pbv-502 was better than no vehicle at all.

TAB-90

     Country of Origin: Romania

     Notes:  This vehicle does not exist; it is the invention of the original designers of the Twilight 2000 game at GDW.  I have elaborated on the back story considerably, however.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This is the result of Romanian experiments in designing a light APC for scout teams.  The TAB-90 is a small vehicle; barely large enough for its crew, and normally less than a full complement of passengers were carried in order to carry more supplies, especially on extended reconnaissance missions.  The TAB-90 has an unusually quiet engine, and enemy troops often found the TAB-90 much closer to their positions than they expected it to be, without warning.  The exhaust is also filtered so the normal heavy plume of smoke given off by diesel engines is more subdued in the TAB-90.  The main fault of the TAB-90, other than its light construction, is its high profile, nearly three meters high; this not only made it easy to spot against the horizon, but also made it vulnerable to tipping on uneven ground.  It was, however, a good observation platform.  The TAB-90 has a hatch on the front left deck for the driver, two hatches on the turret deck for the gunner and commander, and a door in the rear of the hull for the passengers.  In addition, there is a firing port on each side of the hull, and one in the rear door.

TH-495

    Country of Origin: Germany

    Notes:  This vehicle exists in prototype form only.

    Twilight 2000 Notes: This infantry fighting vehicle was designed in the mid-1990s in Germany to replace the Marder.  Production began in 1996, but all three production lines were destroyed by late 1997 and as a result the TH-495 did not make much headway in replacing the Marder, equipping only a few front-line battalions.  Those that made it to service gave a good accounting of themselves in combat, their heavy caliber autocannons able to destroy and out-range opposing vehicles, and their missiles (usually TOW IIIs) able to take out even main battle tanks.  The vehicle is state of the art, able to fire at full speed and with targeting systems normally found on advanced tanks.  A few were produced in a shorter version with only 5 roadwheels; however, they were produced only as prototypes, and were sent to combat units only as an emergency measure.  Most have 6 roadwheels, and this is the version presented below.  A few of these vehicles, perhaps 25 in all, were produced for Malaysia and sent there before ship traffic became scarce.

Vextra 25

     Country of Origin: France

     Notes: The APC version of the Vextra is topped with an upgraded Dragar turret armed with a 25mm autocannon. The driver is on the front left, the one-man turret has a hatch on the roof, and there are four hatches on the rear deck. There is a power ramp in the rear hull for passenger access. A sore point among troops using this vehicle is the lack of firing ports, forcing infantrymen to expose themselves to fire through the deck hatches to return fire.  Though the Vextra 25 is in an advanced testing phase as of 2006, it is already being marketed, but has no buyers as of yet.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This new French APC began production for the French and German armies just prior to the Twilight War. Designed to replace the AMX-10P and VAB in the French Army and the Fuchs and M-113 series in the German Army, fewer than 100 of these vehicles made it to each army before production stopped for the German Army and focused on the French Army. Many of these vehicles were sent to the Middle East, where their ability to keep up with Leclerc and AMX-40 tanks made them valuable.

Merc 2000 Notes: This vehicle got lost in the budget shuffle and was never put into production.

Ze'ev IFV

     Country of Origin: Israel

     Notes:  This vehicle does not exist in real life; it was made up by Frank Frey of GDW.  (I asked Frank about the Ze'ev IFV once, and he told me that in his mind, the turret sort of looks like a Bradley turret without the TOW launcher box, atop a hull that looks sort of like that of the Marder.)

     Twilight 2000 Notes: An Israeli built tracked, IFV variant of the Ze'ev Mobile Armored Gun System. The IFV has a remote turret mounted on the center top deck. The commander, driver, and gunner ride in the chassis along with 6 infantrymen. There are two firing ports on each side of the vehicle. There are separate hatches for the commander, driver and gunner on the top deck. There is a powered ramp door with two additional firing ports in the rear hull of the vehicle.

     Merc 2000 Notes: This vehicle does not exist.
