CVR-T Scimitar - Undercarriage
The CVR-T (Combat Vehicle Reconnaisance -Tracked) is a family of several types of reconnaissance vehicles, the Scimitar being one of it. The last Belgian Scimitars were phased out at the end of 2004, after 31 years of service. This walkaround shows pictures of a vehicle that belonged to the 4 Régiment de Chasseurs à Cheval, a recce unit that painted its vehicles in a UK style camouflage pattern of olive green and black. It should also be mentioned that not a single Belgian Scimitar was similar to an other one because the crew, due to the lack of space inside the vehicle, attached mutiple types of metal boxes to the skirts of their vehicle.
