News for all things related to Tanks and Armored Fighting Vehicles
We have no idea what the story behind this weird T-55 based creation is.
Well, it’s the Hawar News Agency covering fighting of ISIS so this more than likely came from Kurdish forces or something – my guess is this was a chassis that had been converted to either a bulldozer or other agricultural machine, and re-re-purposes with some sort of gun platform inside a welded steel dome. Could be a ZU-23 or something in there.
Either way it’s pretty interesting – took some ingenuity that’s for sure. Another example of the “hillbilly armor” being put together by fighters in the Syrian / ISIS debacle.
