Hi guys and welcome to Project: ASLAV ABOUT THE PROJECT ASLAV stands for Australian Light Armoured Vehicle. It is the Australian variant of the LAV-25. Here is the 1:1 scale: This is going to be a build log of a 1/10 scale ASLAV 8x8 Crawler using a scratch-built chassis, and parts from multiple vehicles. It won't look exactly like a scaled down version as I have some additions of my own to add to it. I first discovered the LAV-25 while playing Battlefield 3 (video game) and it became my favorite vehicle mainly because how unique it looked (it's not a truck, nor a tank), the 8 wheels, the 4 wheel steering and it being amphibious in non-surf water. So I thought why not make an RC out of it. However I will be making the ASLAV variant. (Because I'm Australian haha) The purpose is to make an all terrain water proof vehicle that can traverse on-road, off-road, mild to moderate rock crawling, and through water. It will also have the ability to recover other vehicles through the use if winches (and maybe a crane arm). It is planned on being amphibious eventually.
