    Ever since all of these wars in the Middle East started up years ago I have been seeing all of these modified vehicles, some of them look awesome, others look pretty messed up. Post pics of the good, the bad, and the ugly here.

    This Ratel 20 is from Libya

    CRI Petrel, a part of Russian armored vehicles giant UralVagonZavod, has created this modified mortar-carrier.

    It's a UAZ Patriot 4x4 pickup truck with a 2B11 mortar (120mm) mounted on the flatbed.

    I guess they plan to sell/provide these to pro-Russian forces in Ukraine, maybe? @Zaslon @Soyuz Please tell us about who this vehicle complex is designed for?

    It is said that this vehicle was developed after learning from combat tactics utilized in third-world conflicts like Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq etc.

    As long as the bed of that truck is solid then there is nothing wrong with this vehicle, its actually better than those expensive armored mortar carriers because you can field more of these pickups so you have more firepower. I can see countries in the middle east not buying these but copying them. Of course Russia could provide these types of vehicles to Assad.

    Libyan rebel armored vehicle.

    An armored vehicle made by the YPG in Northern Syria. My guess is that it looks like it is built on an excavator.

    It seems that the most common vehicle that is modified into an armed combat vehicle is the pickup truck. I am not sure if the so-called "Narco Tanks" count as those are not military vehicles in the sense that the said vehicles are not used by any irregular militia; Narco tanks are used by drug cartels in Mexico.

    One example.

    The Strasko looks very nice, even though I am not sure how survivable it is.

    I think we should change the title to improvised military vehicles or something.
