The Unimog load bed seats are in the middle facing outwards. #4 has inf. loaded up. #3 you see the empty seat tops. You'll notice you can't see through the side stakes on #s 3&4 where #2 you can see through them to the conex on board. The armor covers the sides to the top of the side stakes offering some protection to troops who may have to fight the truck. This is the cleaner solution. The other was cyclone fencing holding sandbags to the sides. PaulE

Packed away Steve, as the BW year is effectively over. WWII German is next year, so the Blacksmith Shop & Tigers on the Prowl 1 & 2 are up for completion next. PaulE
