I have the ADV/Azimut 1/35 scale 155mm GPF - it was an impulse buy. The 155GPF weighed just over 12 tons in travel mode, so I need something in the heavy truck/tractor category as a prime mover ... I have narrowed probable vehicles down to:
-- Tractor, Half-Track, Artillery, 15-ton (Holt/Caterpillar 75hp)
-- Tractor, Full-Track, 10-ton, Armored (Ordnance/Holt)
-- Truck, 4x4 Renault EG
-- Truck, 4x4 Latil TAR

Other interesting vehicles to complement this would be the F.W.D series 3-ton trucks for supplies & ammo.

FYI, a couple of interesting websites on the 155 GPF ...

Anyone know of 1/35 kits, any media, of these vehicles ??

Thanks in advance,
John Ratzenberger
