What Do We Have Here?
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.

I notice the AMC patch on that photostream, that's mighty familiar. Wink

I wonder if this is an "official" photo album?

I like the guy sticking his head out the top: "when I went to sleep we were still 10 clicks from base..."

Hi,

Just a guess, but it looks to me like a Stryker Command Post vehicle in a substantially disassembled state. Battle damage seems likely, because the vehicles are new enough that a service-life overhaul would seem premature.

Another guess would be that this is in the shops in Kuwait, but I can't put my finger on exactly why I think that.

[Edit: Looking at the other pics and the captions, my guess of Kuwait is wrong but close. Qatar is where they are, and that makes a certain amount of sense. Qatar is as close to Afghanistan as Kuwait (more-or-less), and I know that Kuwait is really sensitive about becoming a supply base for US forces in Afghanistan. I suppose a low-profile repair facility in Qatar is a good next choice.]

Chuck

That is the Medevac version. The shape of the rear roof and unique racks on the side are the signs for this version. The rearmost frame partly covered by the guy's baseball cap is a red cross flip sign.



Cool photo. Thanks for posting.
