Protected patrol/Recce vehicles

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. I've done a fair bit of searching on the forums and on Google and I can't seem to find out a definite answer, which regiments/units use the armoured fighting vehicles such as the jackal? or are patrol vehicles used by all/most regiments that undertake patrols while on operations?
  2. I think you probably got it right in the latter option.

    Units operate across different terrains and missions, and therefore need a range of vehicles assigned to them to carry out their jobs.
  3. I thought as much, thanks for the reply!

    arguable as to whether the jackal is indeed armoured
  5. Or even protected
  6. No.4 Mk.1

    No.4 Mk.1 On ROPs

    Seems like a appropriate place... anyone recognise this vehicle? Helmand, 17th October 2006

    Yep, Pingauer, seen it now (front end)

    Looks a lot allyer with the roof down. So great mobility, no blast protection
