Length of FV432 with fox turret?

Recommended Posts

I know an FV432 is about 5.25m long but does anyone know how long it is with a Fox turret, i.e. how far further forward the barrel extends?

 

Many thanks!

IIRC the barrel does not project beyond the basic silhouette of the 432

As the turret was fitted over the personnel compartment, with gun front that is probably correct, but gun rear could possibly overhang. I only ever saw one or two in service, and then on a vehicle park, so this is conjecture to some extent.

Deathwing did stipulate forward but I agree gun rear would overhang.

I have only driven an ex Berlin Brigade one for a few miles cross country but the extra top weight was very noticable.
