Unusual vehicle spotted.


Recommended Posts

Hi folk's,my job takes me out to Cumbria every month with the drive back passing the Warcop ranges,sadly

it's rare to see anything bar a few Land Rovers or Man trucks there but today parked up was a shiny new

vehicle in sand paintwork which I took at first glance to be a Jackal till the right angle showed an enclosed cab.

I've had a look on google and the nearest I could say would be a variant of this Supercat,wondered if anyone

has any other ideas?

Pinzgauer Vector might be an option - not sure if they are still in service? Soft-top Pinzgauers are also used as tractors for 105mm Light Guns. I don't think any enclosed cab Supacat variants are in UK military service.

Hi

I too saw this vehicle a few weeks ago parked in the vehicle compound next to the A66, its definitely sand coloured and looked fairly new, I saw it twice as I traveled back and forth, to me it looked like a Sisu apc with remote weapons station https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patria_Pasi but the windows on the front looked narrower. It is unusal these days to see anything parked in this area, many years ago you would see Chieftains and CVRT variants and lots of trucks, but very little these days.

Yes could well be the vehicle I saw look's much like it anyway.A few years ago I used to travel down to Chorley from Durham every Wednesday

and sometimes there were some interesting vehicles parked up but as you say very rare to see anything now I followed a convoy up passed

Spadeadam on the  A69 a few years ago low loaders carrying some very Soviet looking armour and trucks.
