Description Extended Information
 
DeAgostini DAJSDF32 Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces Type 90 Armored Repair and Recovery Vehicle (1:72 Scale) "Old soldiers never die; they just fade away. And like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away - an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty. Good-bye."
- General Douglas MacArthur, making a farewell address to Congress after being sacked by President Harry S. Truman

An armored recovery vehicle (ARV) is a type of armored fighting vehicle used to repair battle- or mine-damaged as well as broken-down armored vehicles during combat, or to tow them out of the danger zone for more extensive repairs.

ARVs are normally built on the chassis of a main battle tank (MBT), but some are also constructed on the basis of other armored fighting vehicles, mostly armored personnel carriers (APCs). ARVs are usually built on the basis of a vehicle in the same class as they are supposed to recover. thus, a tank-based ARV is used to recover tanks, while an APC-based one recovers APCs, but does not have the power to tow a much heavier tank.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces Type 90 armored repair and recovery vehicle. Note: The tow hook does not unpack into its deployed position and remains in its stowed position. Now in stock!
