I don’t think the army uses ‘X’ in their numbers…..and besides, the jury is still out on this car….we don’t even know if it’s for hauling tanks….could be for bull dozers or other construction equipment….

I bet my bottom dollar it’s a mobile loading/unloading ramp for those destinations in the middle of anywhere you want.
I think you nailed it! Notice the ramps at each end are at different heights and pivot points, so it can load in any given situation….

I think it’s a loading ramp, and just that….don’t think it’s meant to actually carry a load, just to act as a portable loading ramp….it’s too short to carry present day armour…..

If it truly is a custom job, they could have used anybody’s trucks….doesn’t appear to be any identifying wording on the trucks upon close examination…..

Is it possible to get a side shot of the trucks?

It just seems that it’s too detailed and specific to not have been modelled after an actual prototype….must have been modelled after something…..
