It was on a FB page, which of course I can no longer recall the name or find. There were 2 or 3 other pics, i just saved that one to my phone for some reason. I'm limited on what I can do on FB  - still on a 30 day ban..my 5th in the last 6 months.

OT,

But yeah, the FB fact checkers are actually opinion checkers who are oblivious to historical facts.

Its got me re-thinking a web page format like we have here at BTS. Who built BTS?

My last web page I wrote out in html. This was the heady days of MS Paint and dial up!

I'm hoping that "simple machines" (?) can be adapted to whatever style forum? I just really happen to like the GUI of BTS.

The latter two could be candidates for the Swords into Plowshares GB as wildlife observation vehicles in somewhere like Africa or the Arctic.

Is there any further information about the Altana version of the M113?  What was the purpose for the thing?  Just a mobile elevated observation post?

From what I can find they were Italian versions for observation:

Mobile Observation/Exercise Control vehicle could become popular with the hunting tourism industry after retirement in places like Australia and Texas.  Feral hog and emu hunting would be my first guess.
