This album has images in it of an M1121 TOW Missile Carrier that has been modified for use as a BRDM-2 VISMOD at JMRC in Hohenfels, Germany.
The vehicle is incomplete for use as a TOW Carrier. It is missing many of its required internal components but there are a few pieces of TOW specific equipment remaining. Due to the presence of the swing arm weapon mount, it appears this vehicle is used primarily to mount a light machine gun such as an M249 SAW or a medium machine gun such as the M240B or M240L.
The nose modification mounts on the front bumper utilizing the pivot pins/mount for a brush guard.
