Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

I am told it is a mid-1970s vehicle yet it looks like one of those weird mixes they tried just before and during the early stages of WW2.

I know I have seen it, f2f, but for the life of my kids could not tell what or where...

My subconcious, though, shouts "German German!" at me, maybe a Leopard 3 version I would not know?

I recall there were 2 barreled Leo 3s as test models (like GVT 04), five-wheeled, but also I dont seem to recall that one of the guns was turrett mounted, AFAIK those had fixed guns adjusting with vehicle...

A mystery, looking forward to the solution.

Correct, that is the so-called "VT1" (not exactly sure which version is shown here, but I believe it's the VT1-1) which was a trial vehicle meant as a replacement of the Leopard 1 and for testing the application of two guns in one tank simultaneously. For further information see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VT_tank
