Any suggestions welcomed
Soviet export model ACRV - Artillery Command and Reconnaissance Vehicle.
It's an MTLB variant
<tries to resist>
For the edification of the OP, it's not a fuckin tank.
I have a piccy of it being aquired by us back on Granby
It had Viz characters drawn on the side. I remember Big Vern being one of them.
What is it then?
You little tinker.
In the original thread it is named as ACRV M1974. The first relevant thread returned by a Google search for ACRV M1974 starts thus:
"The artillery command and reconnaissance vehicle (ACRV) Ml974" (Interesting that having copied and pasted the line from the article, it looks like the original has a typo, cos that doesn't look like a "1" in the font I have in front of me - compare with the other instances in this post. Ho hum.)
So my guess without digging too deeply is it's an artillery command and reconnaissance vehicle. Of course I could be wrong, but I am used to that.
Wrong assumption,it wasn't cut and pasted. Having spent over 5 years pootling around the former DDR,I dare say I saw this before anyone else on the forum,1974 year into sevice,first ground sighting in the DDR,1976,on the range road at the Dallgow Doberitz range,just North of Staaken,on Route 5 transit route.

It is not a tank, it is an Armoured Surrendering Vehicle...well they didn't fight that hard as it happened.
Separate names with a comma.
