    It’s quite a decent MCI for the movement of personnel to the place of hostilities .. A turret with internal control gives it a certain combat look .. But it is not practical to use it during combat operations .. RPG-7 flashes through and through .. Suitable for use against terrorists who do not anti-tank facilities

        MRAP is not an armored personnel carrier, nor an BMP .. It is an armored truck created against the actions of partisan detachments in Africa .. It is necessary to ensure the safety of personnel from mine traps during transportation, and not for fighting ..

      It is not necessary to compare with the Tiger, but with the Urals.

        And even better - with Typhoon-Airborne - these are just ONE class cars (both in weight and in number of axles). "Tiger" - a car of a lighter class (7 tons versus 14 tons).

            In the Sukchen and Sunchon districts, very good conditions for the deployment of forces to the regiment of the Airborne Forces in the rear, followed by a march and combat deployment at well-known frontiers. crossings across the Amur River and along the convoy transport routes of the PLA.

    South African Marauder is very severe and brutal ..
    He has modifications for the infantry, ambulance and command center.
    He is able to carry an explosion of 14 kg of TNT under the wheels and 7 kg under the body, which makes him one of the most protected vehicles in the world.
    Cruising range can be increased by 500 km due to the installation of additional tanks.
    A marauder is able to overcome a ford at a depth of half its height.
    Comfort inside the car provides a climate control system.
    The machine is capable of pulling a trailer weighing 18 tons.

      Well, why are you calling him “Predator” a “looter” ?! Marauder - it’s more correct to translate it as “predator” (this word has several meanings in English: raptor; predator; marauder) And the Russian "looter" comes from the French maraudingur - the robber. By the way, in English "looter" usually sounds like plunderer or looter. It's just that it’s some kind of illiterate “Vasya” on Wikipedia that got pissed off ..... But that's all, so - “philology” .....

    The Kazakhs got a good machine. It is interesting to compare the performance characteristics and price with the Russian counterpart, as well as development costs.

              South African people initially design their machines for commercial units .. to facilitate export and financial attractiveness .... instead of RYSSE we could also buy our such units. There and on the unit of the Urals was MRAP 6x6 ...

                    AND WHY DO YOU DO JUARIAN ON THE UNITS OF THE URAL WHEN ALREADY HAVE THE READY URAL (Typhoon-U), which is no worse than the Jurassic (by the way, and the American Cougar too!)? Just so that was what to do with yourself?
                    Well, I understand that the Yuarovites riveted “from what was” (“at hand”). And to get the Ural units far away ("overseas heifers are for" half the price ", but you have to pay a ruble for transportation").

    Nitsche of such machines, in fact, as the Ural Typhoon, is only much more protected. At VAIShnikov - GAI officers with a suspension something incomprehensible, the wheels began to disperse.

      in fact, the Ural Typhoon is better protected. in the Urals, the defense holds 14.5 × 114mm AP / B32. Arlan has 7.62 × 51mm AP (WC core) and / or 12.7x99mm Ball

    --- Protects against 12,7 mm bullets without a hardened core.
