M48A5 2S3 Surrogate Vehicle.
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.

Just ran into this:

Source: www.flickr.com/photos/...ong/page4/
It appears to be an M48A5 chassis - note 5 return rollers - topped with a 2S3 surrogate target.
More photos of the static target:




Does anyone have more to add?

The caption of the M48A5 based 2S3 over on Flickr says this was a film prop vehicle, but it looks more like a US military OPFOR vehicle. I am assuming the driver's position is still up front. Anyway, it's a great photo thanks for the link!

Chris.

You are welcome.
As for its purpose, I postulated about potential OPFOR use when I commented on the photo in Flickr. And you're probably right about the driver's position. I mean, they wouldn't go to the trouble of modifying the Patton hull just to have the driver facing the "right" (for the 2S3) direction.
