I do not know if this is the proper name, but Leichter Raupenschlepper Famo. The Germans converted a Famo tractor into an anti-partisan vehicle, or something to that end.

Hi ArmchairSamurai,
that was really fast. I thought it would take a bit longer.
So it's your turn again.

Haha, it's a very distinct vehicle Armin. Though not my favorite anti-partisan vehicle per se, it's hard to forget that clunky shape, even after everything I have archived. On an aside, since we're talking about such vehicles, I really dig the Sicherungsfahrzeug UE(f) with corrugated armor on steroids. :D

Anywho, here is the next quiz question.

Hi Guys
The above converted tractor was part of a larger group on converted vehicles for use primarily as airfield security. These Pseudo tanks existed on many different captured chassis such as Bren, Chenilette, FT-17 and other tracked vehicles.

Hi everybody
Rich you just beat me. I have it as type 3 Ka-Tsu amphibious landing craft.

For ArmchairSamurai here some more Sicherungsfahrzeuge UE. I hope they are new for you.

Regards
Armin

Alright Pz III, your go.

Also thanks everybody for the Sicherungsfahrzeug UE(f) photos, very nice of you all. Unfortunately, Armin, I have already seen them all, but still nice nonetheless. :) Too bad that last photo has so many watermarks, it is a good one. I had almost kept that one for my archive once, but went with something else.

Hi ArmchairSamurai
sorry that you already know those pictures.
There are so many different superstructure models built on these small tractors.
I have collected more than 70 photos of this small fighting vehicle.
Here some more. If you already know them they still might be of interest to somebody.
Does anybody know the unit sign in the 4th picture?
Regards
Armin

IMO looks like a bit faded Polizeiadler on the vehicle front and a better one on the side of the MG barbette.

Hi Guys
Ok here is my quiz subject. Hard to find good quiz subjects anymore - this one should not be hard at all.
