By 1941 more of the Russian T-26 had been built that any other tank in the world, and  with over 10,000 in service, there were more T-26s in the Red Army than most - maybe all - other armies had tanks. About a sixth of the total production was given over to specialist variants.  That shown here is the T-26T, a field artillery tractor.  Production began in 1932 with the open topped version, see here with a weather cover in place, towing what appear to be 122mm Model 10/30 howitzers. 183 vehicles built.  In 1936 they were joined by a batch of 14 armoured tractors, shown on parade towing the 76.2mm F22 gun.

Two questions.

1) Why is the chap standing on the tank wearing an inflatable suit?
2) Why is the tank wearing a shawl? Is it cold?

<snark mode>Looks like a game of Flames of War/Team Yankee . . . </snark mode>

Alternatively, just arrange an artillery barrage for the centre of that group.

In reality, an interesting photo. Thanks for posting, and for the others.

Two Australian M-113 APCs in Vietnam, named “HM APC” (on the analogy of “HMS” for Her Majesties' APC) “Flint” and “Steele”.  Australian M-113s were often fitted with enclosed 7.62mm machine-gun turrets as seen here, rather than the additional armour kit around the commander's .50 calibre seen on US vehicles.  As shown by the land rover to the right of the photo, Australian units used a mix of US and British kit, with M-113 APCs supported by Centurion tanks and a combination of British-style SLR rifles and US M-60 machine guns as small arms

So that's what it means if you say you're "tanked up on beer". I've always wondered.

Leopard 2A4HU
In December 2018, Hungary ordered a large number of armored vehicles from Germany (specifically, from KMW) in order to properly re-arm its armored forces. These included 44 cutting edge Leopard 2A7+ MBTs (called Leopard 2A7HU in Hungarian service), 24 Panzerhaubitze 2000 SPGs, and 12 older, refurbished Leopard 2A4 MBTs for training (referred to as Leopard 2A4HU). The abovementioned tank is one of these older Leopards.
Before 2020, Hungary (including the 25th Rifle Brigade) was operating a number of obsolete T-72M1 MBTs (essentially an export version of the T-72A) and towed 122mm howitzers. The modern German weapons will be replacing the old Soviet equipment. All the training Leopard 2A4HU tanks will go to this unit with the training itself being provided by Austrian instructors. The rest of the ordered vehicles should arrive between 2023 and 2025. While not officially known, sources estimate the cost of the entire sum of Hungarian arms acquisitions from Germany at 1.5 billion EUR. One thing is, however, certain. This program will make the Hungarian military one of the strongest and best-equipped armies in the region.
This camouflage pattern is based on a specific vehicle, transferred from Germany to Hungary and officially accepted in service with the Hungarian 25th Rifle Brigade (Magyar Honvédség 25. Klapka György Lövészdandár) on July 24, 2020, during a ceremony attended by the leaders of the Hungarian military, including the minister of defense himself.


Painting competition ... when we get a Leopard.
