The vehicle I want to identify is the bottom right. At first it look to me like a modified M113 armored personnel vehicle. But I'm certain its not, for the treads are not evenly distributed like the M113 Gavin.

It looks like a bridge laying vehicle of some sort. Not sure about that though.

Look like something used for clearing landmines. They're called 'Flailers' or 'Flail Tanks' sometimes.

Here's a few examples. That sort of equipment is not something that's standardized IIRC, they're all pretty much custom built for the task.












edit: planeman figured it out, o well.

It's an Israeli "Achzarit" heavy APC which is a rebuild of the Centurian MBT chassis. Because the engine is in the rear of the chassis, the troops have to exit out of a sort of ramp set up which is the triangular bit at the back.

Good info on it: www.israeli-weapons.com...

Planeman isn't Achzarit based on a T-54/55, with new engines and redesigned interiors?

Puma is Based on Sho't (a modified centurion)...



The big vehicles in the background are Armoured Catepillar D9s (possibly D10)
