   Swedish armored vehicles Pansarbil m/31 as part of the Leib Guards Hussars Regiment (K.3) of the Swedish Army; 1930s. Armored vehicles were manufactured on the chassis of serial trucks of the Chevrolet and, later, Volvo brands. 


   The armored cars were equipped with  armored cabin and body against small arms. The armament of the armored vehicles consisted of a 6.5-mm machine gun Kulspruta m/14-29, located in the cockpit, and the same machine gun, located in the back of the armored car; part of the cars instead of a machine gun in the back received a 37 mm m/1898 gun. The crew of the armored car consisted of five people: a commander, a driver, a machine gunner in the cockpit, and two machine gun / gun operators in the back.


   In total, 32 armored vehicles of this type were built for the needs of the Swedish army. Armored vehicles were delivered to the cavalry units of the Swedish army, and the platoon usually included 3 armored vehicles: two machine guns and one cannon-armed.


   In the late 30s. m/31 armored vehicles were re-equipped - Kulspruta m/14-29 machine guns were replaced with 8-mm Kulspruta m/36 machine guns. In 1942, the armored vehicles passed and the second stage of rearmament - the 37mm guns on the cannon armored cars were replaced with 20mm automatic guns.


   Armored vehicles remained in service with the cavalry units until 1943, after which they were seized and transferred to the armored units. As new equipment arrived from the Swedish industry, they were transferred to training units. The last m/31 armored vehicles were decommissioned by the Swedish army in 1958

It was probably already discussed but isn't the Kontakt 1 alone dangerous enough for the thin armor of the BTR? 

Yes, there is a chance to brake/crack armor plate (on BMP, for example) with force of one ERA module detonation.

      Greetings, I have been studying in the battle of Afrin since it started. Yet I still lack some information that can clearly analyse the opposite plan, war progress and order of battle of both side (Turkey army clear but YPG isn’t).
      I am spectacular interested in the process of the battle as it revealed the true strength of the 2nd largest NATO army. Also, the performance of YPG/YPJ militant against the regular modern army is meaningful to modern warfare study too.
      Hence, any kind man can help me on this field or even just give out a reading list?

      ISIS, how you get so many Toyota Hilux pickups?
      U.S. Treasury inquires about ISIS use of Toyota vehicles 
      Toyota Hilux pickups, an overseas model similar to the Toyota Tacoma, and Toyota Land Cruisers have become fixtures in videos of the ISIS campaign in Iraq, Syria and Libya, with their truck beds loaded with heavy weapons and cabs jammed with terrorists. The Iraqi Ambassador to the United States, Lukman Faily, told ABC News that in addition to re-purposing older trucks, his government believes ISIS has acquired “hundreds” of “brand new” Toyotas in recent years.
      “This is a question we’ve been asking our neighbors,” Faily said. “How could these brand new trucks... these four wheel drives, hundreds of them -- where are they coming from?”

      This was posted on tanknet back in April, I can't believe I missed it.  I'm pretty sure this constitutes a grave crime against AFV decency and good taste.  And why the glossy green paint?
