A correction to what Jason mentioned , "snow grousers" are just called grousers, and they are used all year round not just on snow & ice.

While admittedly not from the Leopard 2 manual, the following scans are from the Taurus ARV Operator's Manual.





Just sayin'!

Cheers,

Squadron has it in stock right now...just arrived Wednesday. I haven't seen it anywhere else, however....even in China. Should be any day now for the rest of the world (I know you meant the other Jason, but I'd figured I'd answer, as mine shipped yesterday from Squadron)

Chinese New Year celebrations for sure played a part in drastically halting the large scale shipping of the kits. With the holiday period finished now the kits should start appearing across the globe.
