  • Mystery Armoured Vehicle

    Can anyone ID this armoured vehicle? Recently photographed at CDG airport Paris. The guy in the photo is the driver and I think he may be a member of the Gendarmerie Nationale.

    Easy Peasy.

    Berliet VXB-170 with the SAMM BTM 103 (Installed as SAMM S365-3) light turret with 7.62mm MG and 40mm grenade launcher. The Gendarmed purchased about 150 of them. (Most just have a pintle MG instead of the turret)

    Any other questions?

          None. It's welded. All the other bits and bobs such as around the windshield are bolts.
