Made during world war 2, at time of Warsaw uprising by freedom fighters - without any proper design, with materials taken from broken german vechicles, and civilian trucks. Production took 13 days, under heavy bombing from german side. It's the only proper apc ever produced by insurgent forces.

"Peace is a precious and a desirable thing. Our generation, bloodied in wars, certainly deserves peace. But peace, like almost all things of this world, has its price, a high but a measurable one. We in Poland do not know the concept of peace at any price. There is only one thing in the lives of men, nations and countries that is without price. That thing is honor." - Józef Beck on the outbreak of WW2

Damn... mexicans are win.

I mean.. 3rd world armies would pay hefty for such inventions. They probably offer better protection than stryker too :P

And mexican cartels got everything - soldiers, apcs, some aircraft and goddamn submarines.
