Experimental - VTS1

Development of the Marder VTS1 was a part of the German effort to find a replacement for the aging Leopard 1 tank. it consisted of mating the 105mm cannon from the earlier Leopard 1 with the Marder IFV chassis. it was being developed in 1978, but the project turned out too costly and in the end only a single prototype was ever made.
