Looks like another chop-shop special; SA-6 "Gainful" ( 2K12 "Kub") launcher, which appears to have been taken from the M-113 to the left, fitted onto an Iveco Puma 6x6.

KMW did propose a version of the PzH for the CRAM so why not a SPAAG using Volcano guided rounds with radar and optronics on the turret roof.

One I was not aware of until recently:  Serbian PASARS system with Bofors 40 mm gun and two  RLN-1C SAMs derived from Russian R-13M which is itself derived from the AIM-9.  As such, we are almost getting to a Eastern Bloc Chaparral (if you stretch your thinking...):

At least the Serb's had the common sense to combine both gun and missile into one platform!!

I like PASARS system seeming simplicity - and undoubtedly cost effectiveness  :P
