Armoured Rigs in Iraq

Discussion in 'RAC' started by son_of_KOYLI, Apr 30, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone have pics of the armoured sleds that PMCs like kellogs (KBR) or any of the US PMC/PSCs are using in Iraq?

    I've seen pics of them being built in what looks like a shed in down town Baghdad.

    They look abit like the south africa kit from OMC.

    TIA

  2. No, not a journo.

    Work in the defence industry and looking at PSC/PMCs and where and how they get resources (Mine Resistant Vehicles are a particular interest, staff - how and who they approach, or do they rely on being approached) for a Uni Project - hence question on KBR.

    Happy to discuss by PM to prove I'm not a Journo.
     
  3. Don't think much of their Baghdad factory...looks like a lock up off Only Fools and Horses...
     
  4. Do you know if they are any good?

    Would you trust one?

    Thanks for the link too. I'll give that a whirl later
     
  5. It would be a hard choice between taking a Snatch or Riva on patrol.... NOT.
     
  6. are there any other ... cheap & cheerful .. i mean affordable RG-30 series type vehicles out there?

    I've been digging around looking for Gaz "hummerski" supposedly in the north east in Kurdish areas, but can find nowt!
