Yep.. my first pic was of a BTR60, but the BTR 70 looks like a dead ringer to me.
So BTR series it is then?
Hmmmm... That could be a good lucrative future gig for whatever fabrication outfit put it together I think.
Find some old Soviet crap for 10 grand or less ((they made tens of thousands of them over the course of 40 years!)).. cut off whats useless with a torch.. Bolt and screw on "Prometheus" Recreation Vehicle "Coach".. and sell to very wealthy geeks.
What about Asking Price??... $500,000 & up??

Look at the angle of the armor in front of the fron wheel.
It's exactly the same.

This is basically off topic but I found a bloggers page with some really cool information and history on what went into creating the APC from Cameron's ALIENS.... Nice nostalgic trip back in time.

Maybe one day after this movie's release, someone will have the info to put together something like that on what went in to creating the vehicles for Prometheus.

If I'm not mistaken it is a TATRA 813, to be sure I need to see the suspension , other other vehicle could be the SKOT OT64, with TATRA engine, Wilson semi-autogear box from the London Routemaster (red) bus. But I bet its an 813....

Hey guys im new to this site, but i saw this and had to comment.
Whilst at work at the airport i did notice someone had put a notice up about what they think it is,... unusal i know but there was a prize :L
Well i have to say i walked around and saw another airport vehicle that looked like something they used. As we all know previously a tug was used to make the vehicle in an alien film but this time i saw a vehicle which with a little modification is it as follows
sorry its a link and not a direct picture i couldnt get the forumn one to work!
what you guys think?

The CINEFEX article (Circa June 2012) on Prometheus says it is based on a Czech Tatra. Doesn't say which model IIRC.

There was nothing in the back, just the engine!

Where have you been Canadaphill? We missed you!
Have you heard of phoenix asteroids?
They glow in every color of the rainbow...they travel endlessly through space...
