My apologies for the prolonged absence, but this first week has been a bit busier than anticipated

To make up for that, here are three images for you to look at

Tank #1


Tank #2


Tank #3

#1 Looks like a BT-7...?!?
#3 Is a Stug III, probably with an experimental ATGM mount.

What do you think of this. It hasn't got a name as such, but a description of what it does will do. Clue: It isn't a weapon of war.



And what has it got to do with this?

HA! I don't believe for a minute that #2 is a wild guess

You are correct on all counts (except it's 1954 Char 25t Batignolles-Chatillon). Well done Compo

It looks like a diving bell with tracks. Could it be a vehicle which could drive on a river bottom and so cross to the opposite bank? In that case, I suppose this contraption really could be called a tank

While we ponder the myriad uses of the above contraption here's another tank.

Is that the fire support version of the AMX-10 APC?

If you're thinking of the AMX-10 PAC 90, then no. In fact the vehicle predates the AMX-10.

Well I don't think it can be called a tank, but then nor can half of what's been posted so far But you are close with the diving bell/driving along the bottom thing.
A further clue (like that would help, this is a bizarre contraption). There are two versions, a cannon and a drill! This is the drill version. I'll give it a while longer, then I'll post a link for the answer.

HINT: We know it's French and that it predates the AMX 10 APC. The prototype was first presented in 1963 and conceived as a fully amphibious reconnaissance tank armed with a 90mm main gun.

It's a late-model Sherman with a HV
76mm main gun and horizontal volute suspension.
