Because the Germans got their Ozelot, we are now working on the Gaskin again.

The Gaskin is one of our oldest current Projects. He is already ingame for a long time, but had to wait for its counterpart. Since the Ozelot now is in developement, Nightmare and TASS are working on the Gaskin's last details.

The SA-9 Gaskin is an anti-air-rocket-tank from the cold war, that was taken into the soviet army in 1972. It's an anti-air-version of the BRDM-2 armoured reconnaissance tank, that fights helicopters and jets with ground-to-air-missiles

The guided missiles are mounted on top of the carrier. The tower can be turned 360° and is completely carted in while driving. The rockets are a modified version of the Strela-2 (SA-7 Grail). To increse precision the rockets are fired with a delay of 5 seconds. Reloading is done by hand and takes about 5 minutes.
