like this one :



Caption : "Marines of 3rd Marine Division camouflaged their Ontos vehicles to look like small bulldozers, then airlifted them into Vandergrift Combat Base in 1969. Probably to fool any VC spotters watching. They could then assemble the 106mm Recoilless Rifles at night"

I saw that at that particular site and wondered what is was all about. There are a few others of an Ontos with an M2 HB in place of a spotting rifle, which I thought was quite neat
