    I am sure that the BBC will update this webpage but I can assure you the pictures of the vehicles are total pants.
    Usual BBC poorly reserached b0ll0cks

    They have referred to Snatch and shown WMIK.

    Minor I know but pathetic all the same.
     
  2. Didn't the Jackal not perform when on trial in Afghanistan with the Marines with the result of 1 having to be towed out of a small fire fight?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think I am.

  4. i thought snatches were being replaced by panthers??

    weve got a panther here and they look awesome
     
  5. SSSHHHH! It must be the only one; and you should keep very quiet because everyone will want one! :D

    Litotes
     
  6. That will be the Panther...so called because it keeps rolling over for its tummy to be tickled!!!!

    One rolled last week on Southern range road SPTA..crew only suffered minor injuries!
     
  7. They can look as awesome as you wish, but do they operate well in sandy combat zones, protetcting the crews and able to lay down good all round covering fire and still drive away under it's own means after the op?
     
  8. Exactly.
