Pvrbbv 551 and Lvrbbv 701

  This is a rebuilt Ikv 103 from the fifties that has had its 105 cm howitzer removed and been rebuilt completely except for tracks and suspension. The AA and ATGM versions are almost identical except for minor details and of course the armament. They only weigh 8 tons and are underpowered meaning that speed is not sufficient. They are stop-gap vehicles that will remain longer than intended. The ATGM version is armed with the TOW heavy missile system meaning that it packs a mighty punch. The AA-version carries the RBS 70 unjammable missile. The photos show the ATGM Pvrbbv 551 version.
