    Poor picture quality, but it's the most recent photo of a Chilean Leopard 2A4.
    Was taken a few days ago in Arica, Chile.

    Weren't these formerly mounted on Dutch M113C&R recon vehicles?

    No, I don't think so.
    By the way, I have never seen a Lynx (M113C&R) in the Chilean Army.
    Unless you were talking about the YPR-765 (AIFV) like the one in the picture, the same 25mm cannon, but as you can see not the same tourret.

    Yes, you can say that.
    To be more accurate it's an Advanced Infantry Fighting Vehicle (AIFV)

    But the torret is smaller, the spike in that tank could be awesome.

    Erick, my mistake, the picture was taken in Iquique, in Cabancha, the last Sunday during a Chilean Army exhibition. As you may know September is the month of the army in Chile, so there's a lot of exhibitions and special events.

    Here is another picture of the last sunday exhibition, a Leopard 1V



    P.D. About the flag, I don't have a clue.

    Ouch.Very exposed....I'm guessing this would be used as a berm or some type of hill as cover and uses the Spikes top-attack mode.
