    Couldnt he find any speed cameras aswell (Do they have them over there :? )
     
  3. Am I being blind or is that a 432?
     
  4. a mk1 by the look of the NBC pack, could even be a petrol number.
     
  5. What's with the turret. Is it an Aussie mod or is it just mocked up to look like a 113.
     
  6. If that's a 113 it's a heavily modified one. No christy chassis, it's got supported suspension, the turret on top looks mocked up, and the front slope angle is too slight for a 113.

    My vehicle ID ability is a bit rusty, but it does indeed look like an FV430 with some sort of mock turret on it.
     
  7. yep, it's a ex-British Army carrier with a mock turret.
