Excellent. The one Id seen in the Concord book looked a bit unconvincing to me but this one is more persuasive.

Thanks for posting it.

Love this photo because I have never seen a photo of one of these guntrucks before.AFV did release one of these a good while back but I am sure they are long out of production.

They're still out there in the suppliers in the US, the shop I work in just got two M548's in last week. I can check Stevens and MMD to see the availability to retailers when I go to work this morning if you want.

Here's the other (well known) picture of Swamp Fox :



I wonder if the one in my first post shows an earlier configuration...The Quad gunner has a much better field of fire in the other configuration...
