Armoured Trucks

A special place is reserved for some “home-made” armoured personnel carriers, improvised by the Croats during summer and autumn 1991.

The original improvised armored vehicle


“M-91 Strasko” Actually an armoured tractor, armed with a German-made WW2 vintage MG42 machine gun

“M-91 Sveti Juraj” - (APC - armoured personnel carrier) A truck modified in similar fashion; despite a relatively fresh coat of colour, it is still showing a clear trace of an artillery grenade exploded in the vicinity of the vehicle overturning it. Hence the shrapnell holes on the body.
