                    Firstly: not a statement, but "thinking about ...", and secondly: that "it may well come in handy." A motorcycle with a sidecar, for example, is almost a status item in the village and in some cases irreplaceable. A similar buggy is a transitional stage. As, in fact, in the army. Why not? Everything is useful in the household.

          And the Americans had their own "loaf", Jeep Forward Control. It was produced from 1956 to 1965. The Soviet "loaf" began to produce since 1965. The Americans simply do not know how to stand still. We decided that the new car would be better than the old - bought a new one. They have a machine, yes, only they turn on their heads first, then their hands, they make the goods. The machine is turned on last, when the demand for dollars appears in the world.

    It would be interesting to take a look .. Especially considering the specifics of the buggy (either an undercar or an overgrown tetracycle). In general, the number of ultra-light platforms in the US MTR is amazing. Previously, a contract for 1500 units. , now another 800 and this is not counting the former and before the 13th year .. Or maybe their considerable losses, as a kind of consumable in operations?

                Any drive wheel moves the vehicle exactly up to that moment, until the height of the soil step in front of it exceeds half the diameter of the wheel. The same applies to the track - no vehicle will pass if its clearance is less than the depth of the track. The area of ​​the wheel support of a small diameter is correspondingly smaller than the wheel of a larger diameter - the first will bind where the second passes. So everything about the patency of Israeli rickets can be understood from the pictures without leaving in the suburbs, Polesie or Kolyma.

                And if you drive a vehicle like the Polaris special forces in the pictures in the article, then the center of gravity will be several times the diameter of the wheel, after which Polaris will tip sideways not only on a 30-degree slope (a standard obstacle), but also on a much smaller one.

                Therefore, off-road buggies (designed not only for pokatushek on the beach and sand dunes) are made with the largest possible diameter of the wheels and the lowest possible height of the center of gravity.

            I speak of regular troops and operations, with partisanism and complete chaos (Middle East, Africa), possibly in a different way. So the specificity and use of a specific ...

              So can you answer the question, went to reconnaissance or battle, on similar machines, to draw conclusions?
              Personally, I’m used to being clearly answered to the unequivocally posed questions.

                  This is not an answer, but some kind of a gobbled question to a question. Hebrew.

                  Well, I’ll answer, so be it, the soldier should be an example for shkolota - he went, and more than once. On similar machines.

      But the Russian buggies and pickups from the fields and the patriot did not drink the budget?
      Chechen auto makes Chobors-3. Prior engine, grant grant, steering from viburnum. Only front-wheel drive and then CV joints.
      Chobors-6. Engine and gearbox imports.
      Kalashnikov Concern 3 types of buggies .. Another buggy-Squadron Intrall, Crimea, VKTS Hunter.
      At parades, displays, exhibitions, all this good is ...
      Drank the budget? wink

    recently watched a kintz how USAA Soldier helped Dustum gorge some kind of in Afghanistan take-well comedy-it's just a fabulous fool filming this movie - there the Taliban and B52 bombs fell in a hail falling nearby - blunders the whole movie. And today for the first time such the film saw where Van Dam and Dolph Lundgren in a submarine (similar to Sivulf or Virginia) fought with traitors, terrorist-terrorists, so there is generally laughter through tears (Black waters in my name)
