    Tires are regular non bullet resistant grade. Vehicle with wheels cannot be armored as well as a tracked vehicle I know I spent time in one under fire and tracked vehicles are superior.
    This vehicle can withstand some small arms fire but tires can easily be punctured leaving it exposed.

      unless it has run-flat tires installed…

      Ever heard of run-flat tyres, self-sealing tyres, etc… They work great in emergencies, and can get you out of there.

      You regularly advocate the superiority of tracks over wheels. Yes, tracked vehicles can do somethings better than a wheeled one, (and can do somethings that a wheeled one cannot), but you forget that things can be reversed. A tank can cross muddy terrain, while most wheeled vehicles would get stuck, but a wheeled vehicle can achieve road speeds and mobility that a tracked vehicle cannot possibly hope to match.

      A few anti-armour rounds in the right place to a track, and all you have is a super heavy hulk of metal that cannot move anywhere (unless it on a slope and it slides down). Even something as simple and cheap and readily available as a RPG can disable a tank (hit it in the right spot, and you could cause a “catastrophic kill”).

        I’d like to also mention that another drawback of tracked vehicles versus wheeled vehicles is that tracked vehicles have a LOT more mechanical parts, including in most cases the tracks themselves, and therefore require a great deal more maintenance to retain functionality.

        OTOH, I’ve mentioned this before about this vehicle in a previous thread, that exposed fuel tank is an absolutely horrible idea. — I realise that the vehicle in question most likely runs on Diesel, so the fire hazard is somewhat negated, but I’d hate be in the thing in an operations area and catch a few rounds in the fuel tank and therefore wind up a sitting duck until back arrives to save my A**.

          No vehicle is perfect. Neither wheeled or tracked vehicles are “superior” to the other. It’s always a compromise between wheels and tracks (that doesn’t mean half-tracks).

    • Mitch says:

      As you can see from one of the pictures, it’s fitted with Cooper DIscoverer STT.

    Was the second one hit with a load of explosives as if it was hit with IED?

  3. petrohof says:

    once you stop the vehicle, you can kill people inside. there is no such thing as a safe vehicle, there will always be a bigger explosive. see afghanistan for proof.

    One side has BFG All Terrains and the other side is Cooper STT? I’m guessing they were just thrown on for it to sit after the tests.
