LAF Sapper Vehicles

The Lebanese security forces intervention last week against illegal building construction in southern Lebanon showed us a couple of construction equipment vehicles used by the Lebanese Army Sappers:

A Lebanese Army Hitachi FL 175 Tracked Loader in action.

A Lebanese Army Volvo EW 180C Wheeled Excavator used in a driller configuration. Note the protected windshield.

The Lebanese Army Volvo EW 180C with VABs. Note the VAB 7.62mm cupola, only the first five VAB delivered to the Lebanese Army early the 80's were equipped with such a cupola. It's probably A VAB transfered from the UNIFIL FrenchBATT.
