Ranger armoured vehicle

A British company has produced a superior vehicle to the Ridgback. Same price, lighter and more protection. It has been blast tested and the MOD said they don't need it

Universal, which has spent £3.5 million building the prototype, has carried out a test using a quantity of TNT equivalent to double the average size of explosive found in Afghanistan, without the hull being breached.

its makers say the Ranger is two-and-a-half times better protected than the Ridgback that will be used in Afghanistan from next month.

Six miles per gallon

540 bhp desiel turbo engine

0-50 mph in 7.5 seconds
Sounds like an average chelsea tractor.


It would depend on who paid the biggest "Backhander" to the bod's allowed the choice... :)
