Okay, what is this, or what is it supposed to be?
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.

Found this while looking through the old "Tanks for the Memories" geocaching site.





"Description reads Found this armored vehicle in Marxzell (Black Forest, Baden-Wuerttemberg / Southern Germany)."

I have to assume this is some sort of mock-up right?

Why do I think the a/c is Italian? As for the circled object, that looks like a portable GPS receiver. How come if the GPS was a war winner for Gulf War II (90-91), why didn't it have any appreciable effect in WWII?

Looks like it is intended to be shot at a lot. Some sort of training aid (or uber-paintball toy)?

Looks like the photographer put it into the shot for size reference. Probably didn't have a ruler handy.

No, its standard on these geocaching sites - you're supposed to include the GPS in the picture as "proof" or whatever.

Not sure but I think I've seen this described somewhere as a Mowag Riot control vehicle, possible a water cannon on top?
