The ongoing conflicts in Syria and Iraq have produced a number of unusual armored vehicles. These range from manufactured armor upgrades for main battle tanks to one of a kind homemade armored bulldozers. We scoured a few internet forums and gathered up some of the more interesting photos into the gallery below. Most of these photos came from here and here.
This first gallery is of tanks and AFVs with different types of add-on armor attached. Some of these are the result of actual government programs, some are obviously “in the field” expedients.
This next gallery of is of oddball vehicles converted into AFVs.
