    IIRC the south african army had similar rocket launchers disguised as standard UNIMOG transport trucks.

      This would make the Global-Liberation-Army (GLA) from C&C: Generals proud!

        And I suppose any terrorists killed during the capture of that vehicle are among the "civilian" casualties.

          Zionist lies. These trucks spray candy at children. I'm sure the UN can back me up on this.

          In any regard my guess is we'll start seeing more of this kind of stuff from Hamas and less of what they did before: remotely activated fixed launchers (a tactic copied by Hezbollah). The success Hamas had with their human shield tactics on Israel post-Cast Lead is going to result in them utilizing the tactic even more I imagine. Additionally too many Hamas rocket launcher sites were hit by the IAF in Cast Lead, a result of good Shin Bet intelligence. As a result Hamas rocket fire did not have as big an impact on Israeli civilians as they would have liked. My guess is they'll try to rectify the failure of their Cast Lead rocketing tactics and combine it with the success of human shields to produce a lot more stuff like this.

            Makes me think of an old joke:

            What has 4 wheels and flies?

            A garbage truck!

                  The IRA and other paramilitaries did something similar during The Troubles in N. Ireland.

                  In this documentary ( http://www.armchairgeneral.com/forum....php?p=1459773 ) one soldier talked about a time when he was on one of these lookout towers the British Army built on hills (doing a two week stint) in order to watch for paramilitary activity.

                  One day the guy spotted this Tractor pulling a trailer of Hay in a field. Perfectly normal but the driver of the Tractor was a dummy. The vehicle turned and revealed improvised mortars 'hidden' in the Hay. These were big mortars and relatively well made but fortunately the rounds fell short. These towers are not heavily fortified so if one had hit they would have been in big trouble.

                    Couldn't that be some kind of Close-In Defensive weapon system like smoke dischargers? They spray candy to bring in children as a shield for the truck against retaliatory fire from the IDF.

                            Clever.
                            I used to have an idea about concealing a 8" Howitzer, the old kind with the shrt barrel.
                            The double axels of the carriage look something like what a heavy truck would have, to me. Just put a canvass cover over it an a Truck cab where the trails come together.
                            Hey, if you found a big enough truck with front wheel drive, you might even fool somebody close-up.

                              It looks more like a dump truck... except for the operators.... than a garbage truck to me....
