The 2nd picture in the original post. Clearly NOT a TOW. I stand by my MANPADS /Stinger variant statement. I've fired TOW before.

That green case is almost certainly a Stinger case, I have one myself and it looks identical to that including the latches. (I don’t have a Stinger, I have a case!)

The vehicle in the first picture was a prototype called "8 man squad carrier" if I remember correctly. I think I have some AMG ads from the time somewhere.

Some books even claim, that the "8 man squad" was in addition to driver and commander, so the vehicle would be seating 10 people, which I would like to see. I would love to see pictures of the interior of this one, but found only one very dark and fuzzy picture.

Very interesting version, but it never made it into production, like the Stinger hardtop vehicle in the second picture.

P.S.: The TOW carrier seems to have motors on the control handles, so maybe at the time the TOW was planned to be fired from inside the cab. Makes me wonder about how they would have used the sight, however.

Les packs de terrain sont attachés à l'arrière du prototype.
J'ai pensé à 6 hommes.
Une seule photo supplémentaire sur ce véhicule blindé de transport de troupes.
Rien d'autre pour l'instant.
