Stormer Starburst/Starstreak

Notes: These vehicles exist, but the machinegun used is an M-2HB.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The Stormer Starburst is a Stormer armored personnel carrier with a turret similar to the Stormer Starstreak below, but mounting Starburst SAMs instead. The turret was also tested on an AMX-10P, M-113A2, and BTR-50 chassis, but only a single prototype each of these vehicles were made for demonstration purposes. The Stormer Starburst was produced at the same time and in the same factories as the Stormer Starstreak, but in greater numbers because it was cheaper and used cheaper missiles.

The Stormer Starstreak is an ADATS version of the Stormer, mounting a turret with a BRG-15 MG and 8 hypervelocity missile tubes.

Tracked Rapier

Notes: This is a modified form of the ground-mounted Rapier SAM pedestal mounted on a highly modified M-548 tracked load carrier. The carrier is lightly armored and thin armor is added to the Rapier mount. The mount is supplied with some degree of stabilization and fire control to allow some degree of fire on the move. Originally designed for the needs of the Iranian Army in the late 1970s, the Tracked Rapier was cancelled by the new Iranian government after it cut ties with Western countries after the revolution. The British Army bought the 50 systems that were already built, and then ordered another 20, then in the early 1990s, ordered series production of the vehicle. The basic M-548 chassis remains intact, with a cab with doors on each side and a roof hatch with a weapon mount. A 60kW APU is located behind the cab to power the weapon systems when the engine is not on. The gunner has a weapons station in the cab linked with the launcher. The Tracked Rapier retains the M-548ís amphibious capabilities, but does not have NBC sealing.
