Finnish MT-LBv - "Älli-Tälli"

The APC that can move anywhere, the MT-LBv, is the workhorse of PzPioneers and 120mm Mortar crews in Armoured Brigade. The vehicle is also used by medics in the Brigade. The V-version has wider tracks than the normal version making the vehicle ideal for arctic conditions.

The vehicle has been used to transport PzJägers for a short while and FO-version was constructed. Nowadays PzJägers move with BMP-2 (and BMP-1 in some cases) and CV-9030Fin and FO-vehicles are BMP-1 based.

Available for downloading soon!

OK, some shots of the progress made with the Leo 2 winter camo. Please note that this is only the painted portion (the winter camo applied). Next thing to do is to add snow on the vehicle and make it look like it has been driving around in winter. This is WIP in quite early stage.

The camo is applied by painting light green parts white as well as half of the dark green (adjacent to light green). I also added some white to the nose of the beast.

Leo_Winter is an incredible piece of photography. At sull size you can see the traces of the individual propellent grains, and the puff from the bore evacuator. Wow!

I like it also... the original BMP pic was 31 megs, so this JPG will have to do in the forums ;) I love the fact that the flame coming from the maingun is bigger than the whole tank - and that ain't so small either!

Those pics above are from www.mil.fi (Finnish Defence Forces website). See the site for additional info on the organization. Lots of pics and videos there (at least on the finnish language section!).

Most of our ref pics are by Sepulis (for example the Arm School Leo pics, BMP-2 terrain pics and the "blue side" T-72 pics). Just to give him credit too :)

Zip decided he wanted to do a truly Finnish Leopard with the proper stowage boxes and no skid and filler ports and covers for the coax so here is what we have come up with so far. I'll let him give you the details of all that has been added.

Hey,

Here are some pics of the winter Leo. After the winter paint was applied the tank has been driving around in snow while it has been snowing lightly. And while driving over small trees etc. the front hull has been covered with snow... Work in progress. Still to come, more snow and mud.

Also visible is the rear hull details - that have been Finnished. While I'm trying to cover the Leo in snow Congo keeps updating the summer version. Most notable changes are the hull detailings that have changed since last version of the skin - to be more correct when compared to the real thing.

Comments?

Snow added to whole vehicle, reduced a little at front hull... Still some serious mud-job to do...

OK, the Summer Leo2A4 "final"(?) is being Finnished. Updates from the last (uploaded) skin include:

-updated camo pattern

-updated detailing and configuration all around the vehicle, especially the rear deck

-slight rework of the colours & contrast

-updated weathering

-noskid

-updated turret view

-reg numbers differ version to version

-Fin OpForce also added

Three versions:

-Leo 2A4 of the Tank Company (Häme Tank Battalion), Ps273-88 with Spade markings in the side turret

-Leo 2A4 of Armour School, MY TANK - "Fraulein Ps273-156". I have spent a lot of time inside that tin working at all the stations. Memories... oh memories... Lion of Parola in front turret

-Leo 2A4 "yellow" (Fin OpFor), Ps273-39 of Armour School - yellow plates in turret sides and Lion of Parola.

The "yellow side" or Opposing Force is used in the FDF's Army two-sided exercises. CZStudios' skins are used in Armoured Brigade's SB Pro and the yellow can be used for "red" to simulate this kind of exercises...

This should be IT, so maybe no more updating is needed? :roll:

The summer Leos will be uploaded soon (88 and 156) for you to use! Turret top and track file included. The "yellow" Leo will be uploaded with rest of the Fin OpFor (T-72, BMP-2, MTLB) package sometime soon, so you can try out some two sided simulated field exercises, -Finn style. I guarantee that IFF (identification friend-or-foe) will be a little more challenging, especially with thermal imager ;).

Fin OpFor pack and Fin summer Leopard 2A4 v.1.2 uploaded by Congo for downloading.

After those shots above the Leo received one more tiny change - the narrow noskid patches in the turret sides were reshaped more correctly. Enjoy!

Beautiful - are you gonna upload the "plain" versions as well - you know without national markings?

Here latest shots of the winter Leo. As you can see, in addition to snow, now there's some sand and mud too. Tanking in winter is muddy business! Some little pieces are still undone, so those bright white spots in the muddy parts will be changed to better match the surroundings, I promise :) Tracks are still unedited, but my plan was to install some ice-picks.

Please, comments!!!
