Homemade Mine Roller
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

A friend of mine took these in Syria. Not sure what group built it, but you got to give them an A for effort. Tank is either T-55 or T-62A. Rollers are rims off of Toyota Landcruiser.

Yes, but I don't think there is a shortage of Toyota rims in Syria.

Looks like the chassis is from a T-55AMV (spacing between 1st and 2nd roadwheel and K-1 ERA, also note RMSh track). The durability (and effectiveness) of the rollers may be improved if they are filled with concrete or something. Steering might be an issue since the rig appears to be rigidly mounted.

That's true... maybe its only intended for anti-personnel mines?
