Spotted this bad boy the other day while out an about, without explanations: a banana yellow Fiat with the profile of an Aérospatiale SA.313 Alouette II on the side.

When it comes to that chopper, I think any student of military history thinks of the African conflict K-car and G-cars of the 1970s which saw only slightly larger Alouette IIIs stripped down and carrying either twin MG151 20mm cannons in the “Killer” version or four very lightly equipped RLI scouts in its G-car fire force troopship variant.

I don’t know that you could get six guys in a Fiat, though. Maybe without the doors and seats.
