The Libyan rebels are the world’s heavily-modified-fuck-you-jury-rigged champions. Although the improvised missile pickup didn’t quite pan out, this tank turret welded to the roof of a truck sure does. Desperate times call for pretty amazing measures.
It’s hard to discern the make of the truck, but it seems stripped down to the bare essentials. Probably to make room for the enormous BMP-1 APC turret. But is that an office chair I spy in there? Yes it is – an improvised gunner’s seat. DefenseTech also points out perhaps the boldest part of this cobbled-together war machine: the dude just reaches up inside the turret to fire it. These guys really hate Gaddafi. [via DefenseTech]
