About the V-150 Commando – 4×4 Amphibious Armored Vehicle with 90mm Gun:

The M706 Commando is a 4×4 amphibious armored car built by the American firm Cadillac Gage. It has been used for many roles. Including armored personnel carrier, ambulance, fire apparatus, anti-tank vehicle and mortar carrier. The M706 Commando saw active combat on many warfronts including Vietnam, Laotian Civil War, Lebanese Civil War, Toyota War and the Gulf War. The V-150 variant was a hybrid design that came after the V-200. It was fitted with diesel or gasoline engines and were mostly produced for the Saudi Arabian National Guard as the V-150S.

Unlike the V-200, all V-150s retained the same size and dimensions of the earlier V-100s, but were provided with heavier axis and modified suspension units. The hull was redesigned to carry heavier weapons systems, such as the large smoothbore guns for fire support and anti-tank purposes. In the 1980s, Portugal updated the design with a 90 mm turret.
