In 1956, the Bundeswehr received a total of 300 Bren Universal Carriers from Britain, the first batch was delivered between March and April 1956, and consisted of 181 vehicles, while the second batch of 119 carriers was dellivered from October to November 1956. Most of the delivered vehicles were produced by Ford Canada. The variants delivered were the Type No. 1 Mk.II, Type No. 1 Mk.II MMG, and Type No. 1 Mk.II 3" mortar.


The vehicles were initially used as reconnaissance and infantry-group support-vehicles, because of their speed and low silhouette, however, the Bundeswehr quickly started to instead use the T16's for their original purpose again, as transport vehicles.


One T16 was however seriously uparmed by the Bundeswehr, as an experimental carrier for seven SS.10 ATGM's. The vehicle itself is from 1957.


The vehicle was fully capable of firing the ATGM's under it's own power and with the crew inside.








Thanks to @woodruff42 for messaging me with extra informations, namely the proper name of the vehicle, taken from page 289 of the book "Typenkompass Artillerie, Panzer- und Luftabwehrsystem der Bundeswehr" by K. Anweiler and M. Pahlkötter, and a youtube video, that showcases, that the vehicle is from 1957, and can indeed fire it's missiles with the crew inside and under it's own power, making it completely viable for being implemented into War Thunder. :salute:

7x SS.10 ATGM's



This would be a remarkebly interesting vehicle for War Thunder, perhaps a premium or event vehicle, because of it's experimental and strange nature. As a BR I could see 6.7 or 7.0 work quite well, because even though it's basically made out of paper, I am not even sure if the superstructure is made of RHA or simple construction-steel, it still has seven incredibly effective ATGM's, as well as having a very low silhouette, which can easily be concealed with cosmetic bushes, or just brushwork from the map itself. Either way, if someone has a source about the detailed operation of this tank, I would be very grateful if you could post it here, so we can learn if it would actually be possible to be added to War Thunder.


The book "Typenkompass Artillerie, Panzer- und Luftabwehrsystem der Bundeswehr" by K. Anweiler and M. Pahlkötter seems to have more informations about it, although I do not own this book myself, if someone does, I would highly appreciate if you could share the relevant informations here!


If you spot a mistake or want to add something, please post it under this thread! Cheers! :salute:
