Beautiful pictures,
Tell you friend thanks, BTW the T-72 is actually a T-55, Not sure what model or variant. I'm sure Taranov could help.

I believe the M113 with the launcher is a M901 ITV. The launcher was called the "Hammerhead".

Hi Folks!

- Tanklord

That's correct! Also the launcher is facing to the rear of the hull. We are looking at the back side of the hammerhead mast and head assembles.

Note for modellers, that turret under the Hammerhead came off an M114A1E1(A2) Lingle!

Hi Folks!

M113 Confused

While that vehicle is a member of the M113 Family, it is NOT a 113.
Check out the top edge along the back half of the hull. You will see a bracket for resting a hatch on and a tube for a hatch counter balance spring running paralled to the edge of the hull. That means the cargo area hatch opens to the side and not to the rear like on a standard APC.

That vehicle is a M125 or M106 mortar carrier. Photo of the other side would tell us which.

Looking at the engine exhaust pipe, I am guessing the vehicle is an 'A2' version rather that an 'A0, or A1'.

Yes, it's T-55 early (T-55 or T-55A) versions.
Vehicle after M42 - M901 TOW.
