M-95 Cobra


History and description

Following one of the trends in ATGM vehicle development, Croatian defense company “Đuro Đaković” independently developed a prototype of the M-95 Cobra giraffe tank destroyer. It consisted of a base vehicle, a turret, and a hydraulically operated mechanical arm with a launch platform. In order to construct this vehicle, a custom M-84A armored body was used. On top of it was a specially designed turret made of armored steel which protected against 20 mm anti-tank projectiles. It had two hatches, four 82 mm BDK M79 smoke grenade launchers, and a Zastava M87 anti-aircraft machine gun used by the commander. The mechanical arm could be raised automatically to a maximum height of 12 m in less than 40 seconds. This allowed shooting from cover and behind obstacles that hindered the direct visibility of the target. The remotely controlled launch platform was equipped with a two-plane stabilizer, gunner’s optics, and a laser rangefinder. The vehicle’s total weight was about 37 tons. It was initially intended for anti-armor-guided missile systems 9K111/9K111-2 Fagot and 9K111-1 Konkurs. The only example of the M-95 Cobra was built as a technology demonstrator in which the standard man-portable anti-tank system 9K111-1 (the most modern that was available under the embargo) was used. During the pre-prototype phase, the vehicle was recognized as an effective defense countermeasure against more intense attacks by enemy armored units; therefore, the M-95 Cobra was deployed to Croatian Army forces in eastern Slavonia. The cessation of work on the M-95 Degman project after the war also meant the end of M-95 Cobra development. The turret with the mechanical arm was dismantled, and the base vehicle was used in the M-84 tank production.

This is one of those absolutely insane designs we need in the game for the meme factor. Honestly it’d be cool as an event vehicle.
