The Colombian Army used M8s with TOW launchers.

Now that's tidy: a turret that actually matches the lines of the hull!  :)

EDIT : hang on, that's not a Greyhound! It's the early version of the Brazilian EE-9 Cascaval, which, although it looks Greyhoundish, is actually based on an Engasa truck chassis.

I've not seen that picture before.  That's great!  I guess that's what they did with the M3A3 turrets when they used the hull for the X1A tank.



Cheers,

Thought some of you might like these pictures:











Note the M3 Scout Car in the background.  Not bad for a vehicle discarded by its original user in 1943!

Cheers,

I thought the White was a HUMMV at first. You just don't see them around anywhere these days.

What are the Columbians using the quad .50s for? I guess my HMMWV with quad .50 wasn't too unrealistic.

Upgunned Greyhound with 75mm or, more plausible, 57mm

Well, they look cool, however, that turret and gun combination would be way too heavy
for the M-8 chassis and powertrain.
