Bóbr-3 Light Armored Reconnaissance Transporters (LOTR)

 Note.  I find it interesting that the development model of this vehicle has the same design "face" as the K808.  Do I think it is a simple copy?  No.  Form follows function.  I have no knowledge but I'm betting that the 6 wheeled version placed amphibious performance as one of its most important factors and that the 4 wheeled lowered its importance.  Its weird.  Modern vehicles especially recon vehicles, depend so much on mobility and long range optics/drones etc...that seeing out the front should not be prioritized over crossing those water obstacles that litter Poland's countryside.

Even sadder?  I'm betting the 6x6 had greater growth potential.
