There was a comprehensive mix-n-match line of turrets and hulls. The
were tracked, the "-tor" were GEV, and the "-bat" were grav. They
same set of turrets, so eg the SPAGs all had the same howitzer turret on
different hulls and names Hellcat, Helltor, and Hellbat.
Sim- or Sym- =MBT
Si- or Sy- =twin gun AAA/ADA
Wolf- =light turret MBT
Sen- =light turret as Wolf- but with short barrel, large bore
These are the names used by eureka and geohex. In the Feb 2003 GZG
said that GZG was rereleasing the CMD vehicles and now uses different
product codes :) There is a fourth hull, wheeled, using the same set of
turrets. This is on the GZG website under the name "Mamba". The GEV
shown in the picture for the "Rattlesnake" on the GZG site. Maybe
can say what the tracked and grav hulls are now called.
The geohex site (via the wayback archive) has some pictures under
Miniatures 1/300 Scale":
In addition, there was a "Triton" series (also pictured on the geohex
with a different set of turrets and four hulls, one each tracked and
with a fixed superstructure, and one each tracked and grav with a spot
turret. Turrets included a MICV (small turret & small gun), a medium
missile launcher, and a twin-gun AAA/ADA. This might also have been
and re-coded. Don't know what the new GZG name(s) is/are.
