1/35 AAVR-7A1 Assault Amphibian Vehicle Recovery
The AAVP7 A 1 is equipped with a new up gunned weapon station that is more reliable and provide greater fire-power than previous models. It mounts an MK19 40mm grenade launcher and an M2 HB CAL 50 machine gun in coaxial mount. The weapon station allows the gunner to engage targets out to 1,500meters and to traverse a full 360 degree at a speed of 45degree per second. The improvements incorporated in the AAVP7A1 represent an impressive upgraded performance. The AAVP7A1 carries a crew of three plus 21 combat-equipped troops or 4,536kg of cargo from ship to shore. The addition of applique armor, an automatic fire suppression system, bow plane and improved transmission results in a vehicle with superior capabilities. In order to achieve commonality, the improvements developed for the AAVP7 A 1 have also been adapted to the AAVC7A1 and AAVR7A1.
