Marder 2 Infantry Fighting Vehicle
With the introduction of the Leopard 2 main battle tank in 1979 a decision has been made to develop a new infantry fighting vehicle with similar protection and mobility. In 1987 development contract has been awarded to Krauss-Maffei company. In 1991 field trials of the new Marder 2 IFV began. It is claimed that field trials were successful. It was planned that the Marder 2 will enter service with the German Army in 1998 and replace the previous Marder IFV. However vehicle was not accepted to service due to the funding problems. With the end of the Cold War the new vehicle was no longer required, so the project was cancelled.Comparing with the original Marder, the Marder 2 is an entirely new vehicle, which shares only the name and general layout.

The Marder 2 IFV uses Chobham armor of the second generation. Vehicle has add-on armor in key areas. Its front arc withstands 120 - 125-mm projectiles. In terms of protection the Marder 2 outperformed many contemporary main battle tanks. This armored vehicle weights 43 t, which is more than initial production version of the Soviet T-72 main battle tank. Because of this reason the Marder 2 is sometimes referred as a heavy infantry fighting vehicle.

This IFV is fitted with a two-man turret, armed with a fully-stabilized Rheinmetall Rh-503 twin-caliber automatic cannon. This gun has interchangeable barrels and uses 35-mm or 50-mm ammunition. It fires APFSDS-T and HE rounds. The Marder 2 is also fitted with a PARS-3MR anti-tank guided missile launcher. Missiles have laser guidance and tandem HE warhead. It has a range of 2 000 m. Secondary armament consists of a coaxial 7.62-mm machine gun.

The Marder 2 is operated by a crew of three, including commander, gunner and driver. This IFV accommodates 6 troops at the rear. Other sources report that this IFV carries 7 troops. Troops and crew enter and leave the vehicle via rear doors and roof hatches. There are no firing ports for the troops in order not to compromise protection of the vehicle.

This infantry fighting vehicle is powered by an MTU MB-883 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 1 000 hp. Engine is located at the front. It is coupled with a Renk automatic transmission. This IFV is not amphibious.

Cleaning Information
Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process. Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain.  It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners. During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light. Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.

Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin.  
Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended. Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise the risk of damage to parts.
