Armoured Personnel Carriers and Infantry Fighting Vehicles
During my visit to the Philippines, I had the opportunity to see the relatively little-used American armored landing craft LVTH-6A1, which was introduced into the armament of the Philippine Marines. It is a supporting variant of the successful American armored amphibious vehicle LVTP-5, used, for example, in the Vietnam War.
So far, we have dealt with the armored vehicles of traditional manufacturers, or the technology of some of the leading powers. However, interesting combat vehicles were also produced in other countries. The truth remains that their design differed significantly from the requirements of users in Europe or the United States at the time of their creation. But times are changing.
The Rooikat combat vehicle was developed for specific conditions in the southern tip of Africa, yet the manufacturer used it as a basis for other vehicles, which it also offered on foreign markets. Unfortunately, none of these activities resulted in a real order.
