So I'm completely clueless what is this vehicle, I've been trying to find info about it, but with no results (not even a photo without description). Maybe I'm not using correct phrases for google, maybe it is just extra rare - I just can't find any info about it.

There are three photos of this vehicle in Hidden Archives. I'm posting one, if I encounter other ones again, will post them here too.

Any help is appreciated.

DAF YP-408 APC. It's on the list btw. This  vehicle (KN-53-72) was the original prototype.This particular vehicle was used by the Dutch Royal Marechaussee until it was retrieved by DAF for further development of the YP-408 family. It was ultimately scrapped. They were used by the Dutch Land Forces from 1960 until 1987. 750 of them were built in several variants. Still in use with the Surinamese army and the Portugese Military Police.

 

Picture of the same vehicle.

one of the few Dutch military vehicles (except from 17th century ships, which are awesome)
