One for the anoraks

The big red letters "BEDFORD" give it away. ;) Looks like a MK thats been modified by some southern african nation, I'd guess Rhodesia pre Zimbabwe to give protection in likely-mined areas. Then it's been used to give safari tours. Just a guess. Compare it with a Ratel or a Buffel of the SADF.
Used to have pretty much the same thing based on the old Bedford RL chassis out in Salalah many moons ago. Supposedly mine proof, and shaped cab/body deflects blast. That was the theory anyway.
Yep, I seem to remember the SADF putting together a batch load of these, designed to reduce to occupants from mines. It does have an official designation, but I'll be buggered if I can remember what it is.
