A new release from Ace Model features a kit on this Russian 8-wheeled self-propelled 120mm mortar platform.
Entering service in 1990, the 2S23 was designed to be used as an anti-personnel vehicle. It features armor protection, maneuverability, and cross-country capabilities identical to the wheeled armored personnel carrier, BTR-80. Armed with a breech-loading 120mm mortar, the 2S23 can deliver either direct or indirect fire. Crewed by four, its secondary armament consists of a remotely controlled 7.62-mm machine gun, mounted on top of the roof.
120mm SP Mortar 2S23 Nona-SVK (72169) is an injection-molded kit in 1/72 scale. It includes photo-etched details, tires, and a decal sheet for two marking options.
