On the chassis of the Loyd Carrieru or Universal Carrieru was established already during the war many similar bodies with different weapons, mostly with dvouliberním protitankovým cannon, pětadvacetiliberní houfnicí or with three inch minometem. Other modifications were vymyšleny need in Canada - just at the Ford there were built 29 000 Carrierů - so on them, something popped, need to the four allied machine guns in anti-aircraft position, something in the way of the american variants of the Half-Track M16.
The machine in the picture undoubtedly was at the Loyd Carrieru, but I would say that it is made up after the war in the Belgium. Doesn't seem to me there to get the cannon caliber 90 mm, the one the British used, so it will probably get an american cannon used to be in the M36B1..

Pretty sure it's a matter of what was created until after the war in Belgium, on the chassis of the Loyd carrieru, apart from it has the armor (even on diferáku) according to me, it comes on pretty late thing (maybe up to the fifties. I'm not even sure if this is just a prototype. According to all the terms of stihač tanks (something like the Hetzer), therefore, the one gun I think that it will be more like something the French on the gun from Jackson to me, it comes short. It that it is the belgian's know on the board where is the flag of the country where it originated and served, there is only one so the emergence of a service should be in the same country. When I do this sometimes in the 99 took the picture so there were even Land these rovers Minerva (belgian production and the ones out there now too, they are not. Still lucky that there is still a C15A (get the armored truck from canada) the one I will need as many of the photos..

Vehicle CATI was developed in the years 1954 - 1962 and the beginning of the 60 years, introduced into the armament. The delay in development probably caused the gun of the vehicle, which is a weapon of the company MECAR caliber 90mm with barrel length 28ráží. Canon has been designated as a priority to fire against pancéřovaným objectives, but allows you to fire tříštivými grenades. Design is intended for a variety of lighter vehicles such as armoured cars and small carriers (the CATI). It was produced over 1000 pieces and sold in approximately 15 countries. Canon has the ability to break with the ammunition HEAT 350mm honogeního breastplates, its muzzle velocity is 633m/s and an effective range of 1000m (maximum of about 3500 m)
The vehicle CATI was included as a part of the armament of the infantry formations, there were two versions, one with a gun and the other without it as ammunition. CATI is the acronym quite a long name "Canon antitank d'infanterie automoteur 90mm" which would translate somewhat kostrbatě as a self-propelled anti-tank gun caliber 90mm for the infantry.
