This weekend members of the French army reenactment group started work on a rare beastie indeed. We will post up pictures of the restoration as we progress. 

This is a mortar carrier variant of the widely used AMX family of vehicles. It has sat outside in the holding area for a while.. gathering rain water.. But now its entering the workshop for some tlc. 

When purchased it came in a batch of stock standard vehicles, but soon we noticed it was slightly different in build and shape from the other vtt we have, so after inspection we can see it was originally a mortar carrier, that has been modified, probably for driving instruction use by a North European country. Manufactured by Sofem in 1964, and judging by the dates on the ammunition we found under the floor, probably in some sort of military use as late as the early 90's.
