Military vehicles around the world

Recommended Posts

Thought it would be cool to start a thread for military vehicles around the world.

This 1944 German WW2 tracked motorcycle - called the Kettenkrad - has been restored to original specifications and is being auctioned

@VET5 Awesome!

        This bike with belt drive would prove to be a collector's item only and could be used as a object of display in autocar shows. The metallic belt drive would certainly damage the tar road.

Who would've thought that 74 years ago the "Hellcat" name belonged to a Buick World War II tank destroyer?! On-road, the M18 was capable of speeds up to 55 MPH, making it the fastest American tracked armored vehicle until the 1980 debut of the M1 Abrams main battle tank.

It's going to be auctioned as part of the Auctions America Auburn Spring sale

Tata is working on a hummer-styled military vehicle.. a made-in-India, extreme off-roader

The Light Strike Vehicle - LSV V2 has been spied testing with military grade doors and hatch for roof mounted machine gun operator. Possibility of a top speed of over 100kph..

Thoughts?
