Here's another one at least...







Full size

Both "4743" and "Ps 522-29" were present at the 2017 Finnish Defence Forces Flag day.

Even if they look similar, the K9 ones are narrower....

The tracks are close to the new T160 tracks for Bradleys, but are not identical. They are quite a bit narrower than T158 Abrams tracks.
