When a total of 50 of these items have been requested, I will put these vehilces into production. This is not a pre order as such as I will not ask for payment of this model, until this model is ready for produciton and sale. This will allow me to create more unsual vehicles and the number we need to reach may differ depending on the vehicle. I will then send you a note/reminder that the models are ready for your purchase and whilst this is not a ‘contract for sale’ in any way Id hope you can fufill your commitment!
The M60A1(RISE) Passive featured the implementation of all previous updates plus Kevlar spall liners for the turret, AN/VVS-2 passive night vision block for the driver, a deep water fording kit, the capability to mount Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA) vand the AVDS-1790-2D RISE engine with CD-850-6A transmission and a Vehicle Engine Exhaust Smoke System (VEESS) that visually obscured the area around the vehicle. The VEESS smokescreen system does not provide protection against infrared, thermal or laser detection. The two six-barreled, electronically fired M239 smoke grenade launchers, one on each side of the main gun and replacement of the coax machine gun with the M240C were implemented in late 1978. The smoke grenades contain a phosphor compound that masks the thermal signature of the vehicle to the enemy. They were denoted as M60A1(RISE) Passive.
The tank will contain 1 plastic M60a1 RISE MBT . The crew and parts will be made of resin and metal parts. This is not suitable for small children.
The final cost of the model will be approximately £8.50 with cheaper platoon packs
