Prototyp TPz Fuchs 8x8
When the Fuchs was developed in the drive form 6x6, also prototypes of the Fuchs in the drive form 4x4 and 8x8 were built. At least one prototype of the Transportpanzer (TPz) Fuchs 8x8 (wheeled armoured personnel carriers / wheeled APC) was built. However, there was no serial production of this variant.
This prototype was later rebuilt into a Radschützenpanzer Fuchs 8x8 (wheeled infantry fighting vehicles / wheeled IFV). It was possible to pick up a turret with a 25 mm automatic cannon. Also this variant was not accepted by the market and it came also in this case to no series production. After that, the project Fuchs 8x8 was abandoned.
The photos show the variant Transportpanzer (TPz) Fuchs 8x8.

Mohammad, Thomas and Spanjaard, thank you for your kind comments. It's nice that you like the pictures.
Spanjaard, to your question: A wooden base to the vehicle is of course also planned. The project is far from over. It will take a lot of time and work. But I'm really looking forward to the next steps. More photos will follow .....

Peter, Bart, Zsolt, thank you for your kind comments.
I am very happy that you like the pictures! I am very sorry that I can only thank you now.
Bart, unfortunately I only have these pictures.
I am annoyed myself that I have not photographed this vehicle much earlier. There are so many photo-etched parts in there. That looked amazing already under construction ....
Peter, Harry the bunny is unfortunately up and away. There was a nice rabbit-woman therefore ... then the spring. Well, not much has to be said about it.
