Do you have a favourite armoured half-track? I have a look at 251s inside and out, and at all its variants. Examples from Bovington, re-enactments, and my models.

Details of how I made the models here: http://www.lloydianaspects.co.uk/modelMiniatures/halfTracks.html#main

From the comments, I have learned that the ‘OT’ in ‘OT-810’ stood for "Obrněný Transportér" in Czech, which means, rather predictably, ‘armoured vehicle’, Also, it seems that the Czechoslovakian factory that made them is now in Slovakia, after the break up of the country (or ‘Velvet Divorce’) in 1993.
