António Brás Nunes has done it again. He has produced the Selous Scouts pigs used on numerous external operations into Mozambique against ZANLA bases and camps.
Also included is a Rhodesian SAS ambush protected Unimog. The SAS PIG is mounted with 12,7 HMGs. I actually have two of these vehicles but I believe there was only one ever produced. A what if scenario!
Note SAS vehicles were usually used with Rhodesian camouflage.
The vehicles are resin with metal parts and fit together very easily with a rapid epoxy resin glue.
It is a shame we have not yet got the SAS ‘Hot Lips’ which was the other Rhodesian ambush protected vehicle used on externals and operations in general. I believe there were two of them.
The Selous Scouts PIG which were two in number were used to lead external column operations to deflect RPG 7 and 75mm RL or B10 RL fire.
One was mounted with a home produced 20mm cannon from ex Vampire weapon stokes.
The second vehicle was mounted with twin 50 cal Brownings. Note both vehicles also had two MAGs mounted.
Anyway well done Antonio and Shaun at S & S Models for producing these excellent vehicles. A must for any Rhodesian Bush War gamer operating in 20mm and wants to do external raids
