The Faun GT was a purpose built portee vehicle used by the West German Army during most of the Cold War. It carried the M101 105mm howitzer inside the bed of the truck. There was a specially built crane that allowed the gun to be picked up and placed inside the bed of the truck very rapidly. The concept was the gun could fire a few rounds, be picked up and relocate to a new firing position before enemy counter-battery fire could be effective against it.
