The Chieftain Marksman SPAAG was to be a cost-effective answer to the air defense needs of the MOD; a unit level mobile self propelled anti-aircraft weapon system.
To that end, the defense contractor Marconi, developed a turret armed with two 35mm Oerlikon KDA Cannons that worked in conjunction with a 400 series radar and had a targeting range of 4km. The turret was designed from the beginning to take advantage of the surplus Chieftain Mk5 MBT chassis that were available and according to one demonstration, could be installed and operational within four hours.
Like many great “What Ifs” in history, the MOD decided for some strange reason not to accept the Marksman and the turret/radar system was eventually purchased by Finland to be fitted on surplus T-55 tank chassis.
Takom has released a stunning 1/35 scale kit of this one-of-a kind SPAAG with 16 parts trees (two clear) one fret of photo etched material (grills etc) separate turret components and lower and upper hulls. All told, including tread links, this kit has over 700 parts!
Molded in light grey styrene the kit comes with a well illustrated instruction booklet and a tri-fold painting guide to color your SPAAG in six different camo schemes.
