    One of the many MARPON clones. All the same, it’s not a military vehicle, but a police or SSO

      And she reminds me of the South African Caspir. The car is old but very sheltered.

    As always, tall as a minoret, and heavy as three elephants! Well, at least they won’t go to battle on it! And then it will burn for a sweet soul! That’s why we have a variety of monotonous armored cars spawning, otherwise you can’t call these police belfries on wheels? ?? belay

    All the same, the design culture in the 50-60s was better. Take for example the BTR40 or BTR152. They are more compact and much lower, and less weight with similar protective characteristics. Nothing extra. Now they create some kind of mobile home with the weight of the truck. Fortunately, modern ICEs allow. And before they danced from those low-powered ICEs that were available. Hence the design culture.
