Most noticeable feature is the Towing Eye / Lunette - which is significantly stronger than the US Original.

NB - M1 Handspike cannot be used unless Lunette is folded... so there is an additional handspike mount to the left rear corner for a different handspike.

Other noticeable fittings are the footman loops and brackets on the rear trail for things to be attached - sight box, M1 handspike (used as assembly tool only)
