Guided Missile Equipment Carrier M730A2 in Saudi Arabia.

Extra stowage is mounted on the platform under the cargo compartment bows on this vehicle, and the crewmen visible have protected their faces against the elements with scarves. The driver's door can be seen, and the circle with the horizontal handle directly behind the door was for external activation of the vehicle's fire extinguishers. The small hole above and forward of the fire extinguisher handle was the aft bilge pump outlet, and the fuel filler cap can be seen in the recess behind the idler wheel. The missile launcher has been lowered for travel. (Picture available from the National Archives.)
