I was wondering if anyone has any information or photos of this Swedish self-propelled turret from the 80's. 
Thanks.

Saab Bofors Dynamics RBS 70/M113 low-altitude surface-to-air missile system:

In March 1988, following on from the success of the RBS 70 low-altitude missile system (qv) and the RBS 70 Clip-On Night Device (COND) (qv), (the then) Bofors announced that it had test-fired its latest vehicle-mounted application of the RBS 70 missile system, the RBS 70/M113 combination.Designed to meet a Pakistani Army requirement for a mobile SAM system to protect mechanised units in the field, the conversion was in 2002 ready for production in Pakistan, which also manufactures some parts of the RBS 70 missile under licence.The missile system is transported in a folded-down state to present the M113 as a 'normal' APC and conceal its air defence role from overhead observers. Once in a combat situation and assigned a fire mission, the system is raised to its operating position.

From Jane's Electro-Optic Systems, 2008
