Puma MAP TCV.
Well António Brás Nunes has done it again and produced a superb 20mm resin model of the Rhodesian MAP TCV Puma.
This vehicle was based on the Nissen chassis and was used until the end of the Rhodesian Bush War.
Shaun at S & S Models will be releasing the Puma in the not to distant future. The Rhodesian range is now growing rapidly. You can put me down for a batch of these Puma’s.
Interesting to not that elements of the RLI used Pumas on OP Miracle on the advance into Mozambique.
You could use these as a mix with every other vehicle a Pums or RL or Merc 4.5. I look forward to the Merc 4.5 being produced.
You could also have a mix of Crocodiles and Pumas. This would be seen in the RLI, RR and RAR etc. Check my blog and you will see what I mean.
The regular units would obviously get the latest vehicles and older vehicles would be deployed with the RR and other units. As RR and Indep RR units became manned by RAR badged African troops the Indep RRs became RAR.
