Army's Foxhounds prepare to be unleashed in Helmand

Ministry of Defence said:
British Army crews and commanders are training with the new Foxhound vehicles at Camp Bastion before the platform heads outside the wire. Report by Richard Long.



a) How late are they again?

b) Do we have enough bods left to train as drivers and commanders?
Cant wait to see them patrolling around Helmand.....sarcasm, my forte!
The foxhound has 1 key design flaw! The front doors open at front ie eh with hinges to the rear. Therefore giving driver and front passenger/ commander good cover from the rear! Me however, I'd rather that protection to the front as we should be facing our enemies
Do we have enough bods left to train as drivers and commanders?
Yes it's a shame that we don't have a specialist driver trade somewhere within the Army that could be the SME and therfore know what is required when a new vehicle comes into service, ensuring training packages and operating procedures are in place so that everything runs efficiently.

And it's a shame that there aren't several thousand of them!
Is that you volunteering for another tour?
After this one? Not likely, civ div for me!
Speaking of Foxhounds, they really do look good rallying round Bastion at the moment, it may actually venture out soon!
