Larry,Maddawg here's your VW---I don't think anyone really knows for sure but I also believe that the kits used in Nam started as armored troop carryers, When I started consulting for Livermore one of our first meetings were at Stewart Stevens headquarters in MI---three or four other manufacturers were there with their product which was all armored troop carryers, we had all our plans laid out on the table---unlike everyone else we held back no secrets---a month later at a meeting in Ca. everyone showed up again but this time no armored troop carryers---they were all now gun boxes, there was some armored troop carryers made out of some left over Striker armor and I will look for my pics of that----let me know what you are looking for and I'll see what I have---I do have a bunch of photos from the skunk works in Anaconda when they began putting our boxes together and removing the hillbilly armor
no doubt about it. was used for troop protection from sniper fire.
