I was thinking more along the lines of missiles, munitions, ships, aircraft, spares...

When the FV101 Scorpion were withdrawn from service in 1995 due to the toxicity hazard in the crew compartment caused when the main armament was fired, they were then remanufactured into the Sabre variant, with the turret from a Fox Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle with the same 30mm RARDEN cannon as the Scimitar.  What if around the same time, instead of retiring their similarly armed (to the Scorpion - same turrets in fact) M113MRVs, the Australian Army decided to go with something similar as part of the M113AS4 upgrade?  I am thinking the result would look somewhat akin to the F432-30:



Although, I'm wondering how much troop compartment = number of troops would be lost in such a configuration?
After operating from ASLAV-25's, I would think you'd get a max of six troops.....

I'm also thinking overhead hatch use would be impeded = unhappy Diggers. 🤔

I agree but there are some pretty rough neighbourhoods around, though, so I can understand why some do.

If I read the clues correctly, it's a mobile range observation tower for an Italian artillery unit.

Yeah, ... that very sounds convincing.
