US Marines RST-V Hybrid Tactical Vehicle 1:35

The US Marine Corps' first 4x4 hybrid-electric tactical vehicle - the Shadow RST-V - has been tested by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and may soon challenge the Humvee as the dominant vehicle for military use. The Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Targeting Vehicle (RST-V) is a high mobility, electric drive technology demonstrator that incorporates a lightweight diesel engine coupled to a permanent-magnetic generator which drives four in-hub permanent-magnet electric wheel motors. The RST-V is ideally suited as a reconnaissance vehicle, as its lithium-ion battery pack enables silent movement for upwards of 20 miles with extremely low thermal and acoustic signatures.

  1. Thank you for the model. I am doing a build thread over papermodelers, resin illuminati and at zealot as well. I tend to do minor modifications to my builds and hope that you will enjoy my build threads as well. Too bad that there is no more info on the interior of the cab. See you around the forums.
