Thanks Palic, now I just have to figure out why it was on display at Aberdeen 30 years ago when I took the Photo

From the "Inactive Files" it was donated by FSTC (Foreign Science and Technology Center) to the museum in 1978. Current status unknown... Inactive could mean a lot of things...

Somebody might want to look in on the Wikipedia entry for this vehicle...somehow this doesn't look quite right:

"The pbv 302 has wide tracks and a high weight to power ratio, and gives exceptionally good off-road mobility, and the low ground pressure enables it to operate over summer tundra and winter snow."

Don't get me started on "Wiki",

I've gotten to the point that I automatically dismiss anything that uses "Wiki" as a reference. I'm sure there is a lot of good info but there's no way to pick through the bogus from the real unless you already knew it. Kinda defeats the purpose of using it. Google anything and "Wiki" shows up usually first. I guess if you say it loud enough and long enough it becomes fact to many. Case in point our "M113" nut who will not be named.
