The Army is embarking on no doubt a lengthy and expensive process in order to select one of these two vehicles:

I like the top one, it appears to come with a little man with a gun of some sort, how novel.

Which one is which?

My son says; 'I like the bottom one, its got titchy headlights.'
 
#7
Do they come in other colours i think purple would be nice, and do they have cup holders for latte etc, and do they come with various options for the seat covers?
 
#8
I think the Ocelot has some US backing, so that would be the one with the bucket sized cup holders.

The bottom one looks a lot better.

And it looks a lot easier to get into and out of - it has steps, as opposed to the top one where it looks like you have to jump...

If it's anything like the normal procurement process,none of you have asked the right question.

Which one is the cheapest!

Personally,I would go for the bottom design,the anti-mine Vee profile is unclutered,allowing the blast to flow over the underbody,the top one appears to have stowage boxes underneath,so one blast,no brewing kit,shabby design. 8O

Yes, and then somehow manage to make it cost twice the amount of the (originally) more expensive one.

Given our economic climate, I'd argue for the British one, providing it can meet the spec and isn't overpriced. We need all the jobs we can get.

They're both British, really.

Ricardo are the prime for Ocelot, with Force Protection Europe providing design expertise.

I like the top one. Looks more British. The Bottom one looks like something Governor Schwarzenegger would buy for cutting round town. Which one has the better armour protection - especially underneath? Oh yeah, and I agree with RoofRat - which one is the cheapest? And for those nice REME Chaps - which one is the easiest to fix?

True, but MOD will save money by not specifying the steps. Or more likely, they'll pay someone more to take them all off for 'safety' reasons.

At least both of them have the Vee profile underneath, which is good. Agreed though, nobody likes having their kit blown up!
