    Hi gents, I think the first pic is of a Belgian T.13 which was an early tank destroyer based on a Carden-Lloyd artillery tractor.
    Here's a link to an excellent site that details some of the more obscure armour used in the past.

    Hi Packin9

    The "Tankette" on the first picture cannot be a Bren carrier, as they have 3 road wheels, not 4, and where the turret is placed, is right on top of the engine. I don't know what it is though, perhaps a riot control vehicle? the bolted plate armour indicates the time the picture was taken at around the 1930's, before it was realised that when a shell impacts the armour, fragments of the bolt would shear off and ricouchet inside and kill the crew.

    The Stuart in the centre with the LVT turret was actualy in production lines, however, they were only in service in the Pacific, on islands such as Pelilu and Guadalcanal in the later stages, they were intended to destroy inland bunkers.

    The lower was a design made during the "Hedgerow wars" in Normandy,1944, which was made in little numbers, it was intended to be a fast, and easily disguisable tank hunter, it was soon replaced with the M10.

    Cheers,

    Universal carriers had 3 road wheels, the t16 carrier had 4. John.
