History[edit | edit source]

Built by the Swiss, the Taifun II tank destroyer was one of the many different vehicles based on the Taifun Mk. I chassis. This vehicle was developed during the late 1970’s, but received no orders and was withdrawn by the early 1980’s. Its removal from the prospective market prompted the vehicle's manufacturer to turn to development of more wheeled vehicles.

Variants[edit | edit source]
