Richard,
A very unusual vehicle, as an engineer having been involved with AFV's for many years I have been thinking what it may be used for, it could have been a one-off for testing another piece of equipment at Aberdeen.
The equivalent of Aberdeen in the UK was MVEE (Military Vehicle Engineering Establisment) and they often built one-off specials in their workshops.
One example was a tracked dynamometer based on a Conquerer tank chassis, which I believe is now an exhibit at the Tank Museum, Bovington, England.
Regards,
Steve

Stephen,

It most likely is a One-off vehicle. I find it strange that the front piece is actually welded to driver compartment. Most likely was driven from deck or remotely. Thanks for your input. Rick
