In this gallery you can find images of a JGSDF (Japanese Ground Self Defense Force) Kamatsu LAV. The pictures were taken during the summer of 2017 at the JGSDF Public information center near the JGSDF Asaka base. This vehicle is serial number KU-50W-0003K, which is in fact the third prototype of the Komatsu LAV.
The markings found on the outside are to represent the vehicle as how it would have appeared during the humanitarian operations in Iraq. These vehicles that were deployed abroad have some subtle differences from the others like additional reinforced bulletproof windshields, wire cutters and an armoured tub around the gun mount on the roof for extra protection.
