• Are those just sitting there or actually attached? - John Moffatt
  • They're attached.
  • So cool. I assume it's like that one on the Bradly? - John Moffatt
  • Quite similar. It's more similar to the FGM-148 Javelin's fire-and-forget target acquisition system.
    The firing of the weapon more closely resembles the Bradley's TOW system, though.
  • Ah, wait, I think I get it. - John Moffatt
  • So this is where it detects enemy projectiles, right? Where does it actually fire its own interception munitions from? - magnus_lauglo
  • Yes to the first one. I can't decide if the studs on the piece you noted should be where the countermeasures are launched, or if the four vision blocks (which are no longer used, as they were covered by armor on the inside when the A2 SLEP came around) should be where they're launched. Thoughts?
  • I like the tires - Dutch-builder
  • I like this front section here :D - Ssgt. Airsoftlego2

LAV-25A4

Newer Older

The LAV-25A4 is the version of the LAV series set for the battlefield of 2035. The vehicle's powerplant has been upgraded and now pushes out approximately 400 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. This increase in power allows the vehicle to feature a new water propulsion system, therefore regaining its amphibious capabilities. The addition of the missile system and higher caliber main gun have caused space in the rear compartment to be used for ammuntion storage, meaning less room for dismounts. Improved ballistics protection has also been included. The advancement in communication technology has allowed the rear antennas to be removed. The Anti-IED boom/pole has been replaced by a much smaller device that accomplishes the same task, now housed in a small curved bump in the hull where the boom/pole was once located. These changes cause the vehicle to have an overall lower profile. A vehicle defense system has also been incorporated into the vehicle. The system is similar to the Iron Curtain, Trophy, and Quick Kill systems. The system will track any incoming projectiles and will assess the threat level based on size, speed, shape and other factors; the system will then take necessary actions to neutralize that threat. In the case of an RPG round, the system will intercept the round with a projectile fired from the system; in the case of a bullet, the system will aquire the location/direction of which it was fired but will not stop the incoming round; in the case of a guided/seeking missile the system will jam the missiles guidance system or intercept it with a fired projectile. The highly advanced system can detect and neutralize anything from an incoming artillery/tank round to a dropped bomb. This is just some available information on the system. I also changed the driver's periscopes to smoked in place of the blue.

Changes to the turret include the addition of a CROWS M2 .50 cal station, Anti-tank missile system, Mk44 Bushmaster 30/40mm automatic cannon, and a vehicle defense system. They can be seen more closely here:

These changes where made for a group and I will be returning the vehicle back to its A2 version shorty. I guess this shows that I haven't been doing absolutely nothing LEGO related lately.

    I can't find anything I would do differently with this build, and that is rare for me to write. It is grand on the grandest scale, a worthy sculpture of the LAV. Wowly excellent work.

    @Erik: /high-fives

    @Tedious: Quite unfortunate indeed.

    @the timy: This is more of an additional/futuristic variant than a V2.

    @urtherdead: Thanks, I'm quite honored to receive such a rare praise.
