    The 'enigma' was a command vehicle used by the Iraqi army during GulfWar1. The update was done in-house by the Iraqi army. Basically It was a basic idea of home made add on armour.

    The only issue seems that normally old T54s were used but Tamiya used their basic T55 for this 'conversion' but let's face it these tiny details are only seen by maniacs of the mythical Ts.

    Nice to see a new face to an already good model by Tamiya.
