July 2004

This is an MTLB captured in Iraq in 2003. It has been totally refurbished as a gate guardian for the RAF by the museum workshops.

The 23mm anti aircraft gun mounted on the back of the vehicle is a local Iraqi modification.The armour of the MTLB is so thin that it is not fully proofed against small arms fire, let alone anything larger.

The vehicle took 3 weeks to refurbish and is now on display at an RAF base.
