If you have someone close to you who can write- tell them what you want to say. then have them write it out for you and repost your question or point.
Afterwards...you should consider trying to learn simple grammar.
Though I would think in your case, learning to walk upright while chewing gum is probably more of a priority.

'Tis an interesting vehicle inside. Very comfy seats, but if the computer goes, it's pointless. Seems to be very capable as long as it works, I think battle group staff wold like it.

NTM

Hmmmmm
Couldn't beat the chundering, gut wrenching feeling as one was cabbied round the war in the back of a Sultan. Liked the article though and hey......
'The MLV is powered by an Iveco 186bhp common rail diesel engine, certified to Euro III emission levels'
Yeah, like the average Battle Group really gives a sh*t about the environment!!!

"I say chaps, what's that enemy wallah doing over there??"
"Having a brew sir, by the looks of it!!"
"Having a brew? B*gger!! Get a tactical Nuke down on that position NOW dammit!!!"

Sorry to burst the bubble on this one, but this vehicle is as much use as a chocolate fire guard for the role it is going to be used in.

In fact, an expensive chocolate fire guard,
no, a very badly designed expensive chocolate fire guard.

This would have made a good replacement for the Snatch2a, but not for armour. Not by a long shot. I was involved last July with this project and I raised some serious issues - bearing in mind this was in the design stage - I was told that the issues had already been raised but the vehicle had been signed off on so to get back in my box.

It will all come out in the was and you will ask the same questions that I did, WHY ON EARTH DO IT LIKE THAT????? It is so badly designed inside its not even funny.

The vehicle in the same role as the Snatch would be great, really good. BUT THAT WOULD BE IT!!!!

Except that Snatch has still got enough room in the back to carrysoldiers!

I dont think it has a canvas roof, bullet proof brown paper perhaps but on a serious note why a Hummer clone and why are we still looking at car derived vehicles when something like a Rattel or Buffalo would be better!

The air-conditioned and heated cabin is fitted with a high resistance roll bar, a two-piece tiltable windscreen and a canvas roof with a dismountable frame. The four doors are fitted with sliding and dismountable windows and are built to withstand the shock wave of an explosion.
It's a Bosnia car really isn't it? Mine resistant but otherwise not particularly armoured.

I would think it's based on light truck parts rather than being "car derived".

SSM's are going to be issued with it. It is currently behind schedule as there are "problems" with it. So it will prove to be very expensive, it will be late, and probably not as good as it is supposed to be!. We could of course have built the US HuM Vee under licence as much less cost and they would probably be in service now.

ugly - i agree, it looks like a humvee clone. it would be typical of HMG to go for a humvee look-alike just as the US Army decides it must go for something bigger and heavier on the scale of a Buffalo.

After giving a presentation last week in which i mentioned this vehicle I was told by one Maj that it is a year behind schedule and by another that it has failed its trials completely.
