Post subject: Israeli Half-track SPG to identify please

Here are few photos I took at the V2 Bunker museum at Eperlecques, France. There was a lot of artillery and this Half-track, which I suppose carried an AT gun or a howitzer. Could you please identify it?

Half-track at Eperlecques

Thanks

interesting, doesn't look exactly like anything, even checked my Hunnicutt. Normally whole front of cab folded down without a seprate drivers compartment, maybe a field mod or mod by a foreign user?

Hmm I should mention that the gun is actually missing... IIRC they were six-pounders fitted with a 90mm barrel. Anyone confirm this?

Cool

I mentioned on the website that it is an "Israelian M3 Half-track with 90mm anti-tank gun", referring to the description made on this website :

http://www.balagan.org.uk/war/ai/weapons.htm

"M3 Half-track with 90mm anti-tank gun

The Israelis converted some M3 half-tracks into tank destroyers by adding a French 90mm DEFA F1 gun. (Ian Clarke emailed me to say the halftracks with the defa 90 mm gun were used on the Golan heights in 1967)
"

I think that this description should fit to the vehicle, but I wonder what's the real name of this vehicle in the Israeli official classification..
