A Malaysian Ferret Mk2/2

 

Denmead, England, 2000.

This vehicle was spotted at the Denmead Meet in England by Derek Gardner who kindly sent me the photos.

This variant was a Far East modification of a normal Mk2/1. The difference being the cupola/barbette (I am not sure what to call it) mounted between turret and hull. As far as I can find out, these vehicles were operated by Malaysia.

If you look at the Mk 1/2 behind it, you can see the cupola is not that of a Mk 1/2, but is actually a purpose built design.

This vehicle was for sale for 5000 at the time. Quite what its stability and handling characteristics are like with such a high centre of gravity would be interesting to find out.
