There seems to be two sets of vision blocks.Is there another vehicle right behind this one? If so I'll go for M113A3.

You’re all getting warmer, but you’re not there yet. Yes, there are two sets of vision blocks (you can see that in the first photo I posted too, BTW), but no, there isn’t a vehicle behind the one in the photo.

M-114, they were tiny and cramped but I can't remember where the motor was mounted. The last pic shows the trim vane from a 113A1 too. The M-113 family all had the motor next to the driver on his right.

It's a Command and Recon prototype M-113A1 Modified, similar to the Lynx. Motor moved to the rear and had a crew of 3. Manufacturer was FMC, but not put into production for the US Army…..

One of those weird IDF mashups of a 113 or The Brazilian IFV?
No and no.

To the right of the driver. And no, it’s not an M114.

Are you sure about that?

That’s just an M113 hull with a twin TOW turret instead of the commander’s hatch. This is not that.

You don’t say :tongue-out:

It’s the Dutch version of the vehicle the Canadians call the Lynx, but for some reason that one is a lot better-known even though they only had about half as many as “we” did. I think I need to do some research to get the facts right and make the Wikipedia page on it a bit more balanced.

Anyway, over to you, Allen.

That was a tough one!!! While in the military I drove or commanded all three US M113 models. The steering joysticks were wild on the A1 and A2 models!

So, here is a sorta easy one...…….

Interesting, not food and not living things......horizontally symmetrical sides are a teaser, as are the ladders on the end, but can’t see it clearly enough to determine the opening mech. So going for a macabre idea out of left field, is it a wagon for transporting dead bodies for burial?
Cheers

Going by the apparent clue that no living creatures use the trailer, I’m also tending to think it’s some kind mega-hearse.
