PRTL AA Platoon (TDBX04) Includes three PRTL anti-aircraft vehicles and one Unit card.
The PRTL Pantserluchtdoel Peloton (PRTL anti-aircraft platoon) is armed with the Dutch version of the West German Gepard, known as the PRTL (pantser-rups-tegen-luchtdoelen, translating to ‘amour track against air targets’). PRTL is pronounced by the Dutch soldiers as ‘pruttel’ meaning ‘to splutter’.
The PTRL features the same 35mm Oerlikon KDA autocannons as the German Gepard, but has locally produced smoke grenade dischargers and a different radar suite. It can be identified by its bar type search radar on the turret rear.
