Just received this vehicle that a museum wants restored. Can't say I've seen doors like this before.

Can you elaborate a bit on that? I figured they were prototypes since I haven't seen them anywhere else. These windows pivot down with a gas spring to counter the weight.

Having worked on several variants of military vehicles, I've kinda noticed that "proper function" is sometimes interpreted in different ways.
