ROGUE TROOPER Posted September 13, 2006 Share Posted September 13, 2006 Today the MOD are showing off/testing the two new vehicals to replace the "Snatch" Landrovers in Afganistan. The Cougar http://www.defense-update.com/products/c/cougar.htm "Since their deployment to Iraq in 2003 the Cougar and Buffalo vehicles employed with explosive ordnance disposal teams and engineers units have taken about 1,000 IED hits without a loss of life" which is good news for our boys. The Cougar looks to me like a Humber pig! The Vector http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5210788.stm Described as a "very over priced people carrier with bad armour and a jacked up suspension" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
