Syrian rebels have revealed they've created a homemade armoured vehicle with a remote-controlled machine gun that's waiting to be deployed.

Designer Mahmud Abud from the Al-Ansar rebel brigade in Aleppo said the vehicle, called Sham II, took a month to design and build.

The vehicle is made of light steel, is about four metres long and two metres wide and includes a 7.62mm machine gun which can be controlled from inside the cabin.

"We got a car, left its diesel motor on the chassis and built the engine," Abud said.

"Not including the gun, the vehicle costs about $10,000."
