For my money, it is a vehicle which has been designed specifically to
meet military requirements (whether subsequently placed in service or
not - there are some very interesting prototypes out there that never
made it into production), preferably using some interesting or unusual
aspect of engineering. An example of the last, I don't think the parallel
arm suspension of the Daimler Dingo (designed to keep the wheels upright
even when the vehicle was traversing a slope) was ever used elsewhere???
There may be a reason for this (cost/benefit), but it still is a
wonderful sight.
