Looking for a little help, please: Iím after an image showing the engine bay of an Achzarit with the engine removed, specifically, but not necessarily, the teaching example at the training base of the Golani Brigade. All assistance appreciated, thank you. For modelling purposes only.

Best I can do. Googling is not my thing but I had this one on hand.
For some reason a cutaway with no engine.



Since the MENG kit came with no engine I've thought to use one for the M109 series. And when you look at the layout, it appears as if it would mount the same way. Looking at the M109 from the front the engine is at your left with the battery compartments to the right.

Looking at the Achzarit from the rear the engine is also to the left with the entrance ramp to the right. I wonder if the final drives would be the same. If so I'm pretty sure I've got some good M109A6 photos.

Thanks Rob, had not thought of that. Good point on the M109 engine, too.
