They have also mirrored the engine hatch, it has a cut off angle on the opposite side to the drivers hatch so when the hatch went to the other side the engine hatch also got flipped.

M2A2 not numbered since it does not belong in this sequence.

Anyone thought about the fact the hatch is also a fake. The roof of the hull is built up, so the driver is on the left and the slot on the front is where the vision block would be on the normally flat hull top?

A slightly different angle

It is not based on an M113, but a British FV432, which has right-hand drive.



Are you sure about that Gino?



Maybe not an FV432, but it is based on some type of vehicle with right-hand drive. Look where the driver's hatch is. On an M113, that is where the engine is.

Here's another one (or maybe the same...) :

According to the caption, it was used for one of the Transformers movies. It's on display at the Universal Studios :

I'll stick to the M113 theory

The FV432 has a different running gear (with return rollers) as can be seen in pictures 1148-1156.

Are you sure about that Gino ? Here's a M113 from the same angle of view :



Check out the lower hull front, the road wheels and the sprocket of the pseudo Bradley. Look like M113 to me....

That fake Bradley makes no sense, even on the 113 the drivers hole is on the left side. Am I seeing things wrong?
