The War Scooter
Yes, it’s quite true; truth is stranger, more fucked up, and funnier than fiction. The above is a case in point. I saw this image and thought it was a mock-up meant as sarcastic humor. But I was wrong! This “War Scooter” isn’t/wasn’t a joke or something crafted out of a sense of the absurd. No. This is the Vespa 150 TAP. It’s a militarized 150cc Vespa VB1T scooter that was mounted with a M20 75mm recoilless rifle and used by French paratroopers in the 1950s.
