Default What is this a picture of?

What is this? What "inspired" it to be built?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like the Bantam BRC which was the original jeep. It was produced by the Army to go into battle during WWII.

Ok, so you got me! Its not the original jeep (I didn't need the specs but I couldnt get my computer to let me post)

It is the original Land Cruiser. This was the AK-10 model built by Toyota at the Japanense government request when they were looking to expand their Pacific empire. It has been argued if the Japanese built it using backwards engineering after seeing the Bantam.

Also this technically wasn't a picture but a sketch since there are no actual photographs of this vehicle. It was called the Yon-Shiki Kogata Kamotsu-Sha.
