UPDATE ANNOUNCEMENT!

CypModels has announced to release in early 2016 a new unique scale model in 1:50th scale:


  • 988B RTCH Rough Terrain Container Handler

The 988B RTCH Rough Terrain Container Handler is used for handling standard 20 ft and 40 ft ISO containers with a maximum weight of up to 22.6 t. This container handler is used by supply, ammunition and transportation units. Production of the RTCH commenced in 1981 and ceased in 1985. A total of 320 rough terrain container handlers were delivered to the US Army.

Basically the 988B RTCH it is a modified commercial Caterpillar 988B Wheel Loader without lifting arms and bucket, mated with a Caterpillar model AH60 (60,000 lb. Capacity) forklift mast. Later production models were based on the Caterpillar 988F Wheel Loader. The 988B RTCH Rough Terrain Container Handler can stack and unstack containers two high. There was a variant of this container handler, fitted a low-mount fork assembly. It could lift half-height containers. The vehicle is operated by a single operator. This machine carries no armament as it is intended to operate in supply units and is designed to operate over rough terrain and in water up to 1.5 m deep. This allows the vehicle to operate at beaches.

The pre production scale model of the DOOBI D9R Military Track-Type Tractor in 1:48th scale is completly finished and painted. Ready for Action! Ready for sales! Time to order your built DOOBI D9R Military Track-Type Tractor scale model or kit.

  • DOOBI D9R Military Track-Type Tractor

The Israeli Armored D9—nicknamed "DOOBI" (Hebrew: דובי‎, for teddy bear)— is a Caterpillar D9 armored bulldozer that was modified by the Israel Defense Forces, Israeli Military Industries and Israel Aerospace Industries to increase the survivability of the bulldozer in hostile environments and enable it to withstand heavy attacks, thus making it suitable for military combat engineering use.

image

The DOOBI D9R in IDF service, has a 410 Hp and drawbar pull of 71.6 metric tons (about 716 kN). The DOOBI D9 has a crew of two: operator and commander. It is operated by the TZAMA (In Hebrew: צמ"ה‎ = ציוד מכני הנדסי, mechanical engineering equipment) units of the Combat Engineering Corps.

The main IDF modification is the installation of an Israeli-made vehicle armor kit which provides armor protection to the mechanical systems and to the operator cabin. The operator and commander are protected inside an armored cabin ("the cockpit"), with bulletproof glass windows to protect against bombs, machine guns, and sniper fire. The IDF also developed and installed slat armor add-on to deflect rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) rounds. The fitted armor package adds roughly 15 additional tons to the production-line weight of the DOOBI D9R. The modified Caterpillar D9R bulldozers can be fitted with disparate features, such as crew-operated machine guns, smoke projectors, or grenade launchers. The Israeli armor and durable construction of the DOOBI D9R makes it impervious to landmines, IED and large belly charges.

The IDF uses the DOOBI D9R for a wide variety of combat engineering tasks, such as earthworks, digging moats, mounting sand barriers, building fortifications, rescuing stuck, overturned or damaged armored fighting vehicles, clearing land mines, detonating IEDs and explosives, handling booby traps, clearing terrain obstacles and opening routes to armored fighting vehicles and infantry, as well as structures demolition, including under fire.

Sales price is 225,- euro for a model built and 120,- euro for a kit. CypModels does discounts for larger orders. This next knock out model of the DOOBI D9R Military Track-Type Tractor will be available in very limited numbers for serious collectors only.
