Not sure if this has been asked before... What are they planning to replace the Wolf in service with?

In know Panther will cover some tasks and Jackel is cutting into the Wimk's role, but the old soft tops and FFR's what will replace them..heard a while ago the G wagon was on the cards..but not heard that for a while.

The strange thing is the Iveco M30E18WM (LUV) called the"Massif" is clearly based on the Santana PS-10 which is a copy of the Land rover and is selling well... :roll:

anyone know?

The Vixen will replace the Snatch mk2's but what will replace the TUM's we all use just now...?

Don't expect the Wolf to disappear. It is still a very good vehicle in its own right and we'll be seeing it for many years to come. Thankfully we're now getting decent kit rather than having to modify the Landy in some sort of bastardised role.

As the OUVS (whatever they will be) enters service, the TUM(HS) & TUL(HS) will filter down to the T.A.
However, the Army are receiving new trucks, yet my humble T.A. unit have had to supply the guards and the paras with Bedford MJ's and an LR90GS ?

In light of Cyclops and his attitude to defence in general I would expect the Army to receive the Suzuki Jimny ! :roll:

There used to be a time when the only vehicles that could be lifted by the Sikorsky helo then in-service withe the french navy were Citroen 2 Cv...so in the 60s we had 2 Cv pick-up armed with 20 mm MG151 cannons and others with RCL 75 mm cannons ! They were used as support vehicles for Naval Commandos...
