Hobbyboss 84557 Leopard C2 MEXAS Tank with TWMP 1:35 Scale Model Kit
To enable the Canadian Leopard C2 MBTs to operate the dozer blade as well as the mine plough and mine roller systems, an Engineer Equipment Interface Modification Kit (EEJM) has been developed by Krauss-Maffei. This allows the tank to operate the dozer blade or one of two mine clearing systems, permitting operation with the driver's hatch closed down. The exterior cable routed from the armour scoop to the add-on equipment is protected by armoured covers.
The Track Width Mine Plough unit (TWMP) was designed and built by RAMTA, a division of Israel Aircraft Industries, and allows the clearance of anti- personnel and anti-tank mines from the path of the tank tracks. The plough action moves the mines aside without detonating them, and can be adjusted to give a clearance depth of 200, 250 or 300 mm. The TWMP clears a lane about one metre wide in front of each track, and there is an unploughed lane 1500 mm wide between the tracks. In this uncleared area, the TWMP drags a “dog bone” which is used to detonate tilt rod mines. The total weight of the installed equipment is around 3 tons.
