Nice 106 Recoilless Rifle photo exiting a Chinook, and a S3 with 30 cal. pintle mount over crew area. Gunbuggy about 1982 and S3 on exercise near stawell, not sure of date. BFA attached to 30 cal.

Was the S3 30 cal a standard fit?

That S3 is well beyond any standard fit.

Tyres on the bumper, roll hoop, 30 cal.

At a guess, I would say that it was a RAAF unit used by the ADG's.  Quick Response Force I think they called them or some such, QRF ??  I've seen similarly modified 110's that got replaced by RFSV when such modifications were banned.

It is or was a unit fit (The Armoured unit I was in at Albury. Only a handful were done and we used them on an Exercise in Western Vic. If i remember correctly i took the photo at Dadswell Bridge near Stawell. I got into trouble, we were not to go over bridge into enemy positions. But me in my madness and the Sargent did not say anything as i tucked in behind a civilian transport truck proceeded over bridge big sliding drift to the left and the crew commander let rip with the 30 cal. The 77 set blurted and is was told to extract myself and get front and centre for a dress down. BLOODY GOOD FUN.
