Armor ID

Since most of us are ground pounders, ID some vehicles that we may or may not come across.

Looks a bit like a M-114, but in a mortar-carrier config. Is it West German?

My guess is a British tracked mortar carrier. Possibly an FV432.

There are only two types of armor vehicles...those facing you, Enemy; and those facing away from you, Friendly. Both of these would be Enemy

The first of the two is a German Leopard 2A4

That second one, I got nothing... but it looks scary!

This tank even appears to have a 3rd Armored symbol on the front left as well.

Either a Pz 61, or a Pz 68. I think it's a 68 telling by it's turret layout. And no Polsten canon.

In any case, it's Swiss.
