    I wonder how they handle cross country in the desert

    Well, the Turks and the Iraqis use them in rugged mountainous and desert terrain though. So do Nigerian troops in Darfur(UNAMID). They were introduced alongside MT-LB APCs to replace the MOWAG Piranha which could not handle the desert operations…eventhough MOWAG APCs fared OK in humid Liberia and Sierra Leone, locked tight on the Atlantic coast

    Anytime that I see satellite TV footage from the Turko-Syrian frontier on Al Jazeera TV, I see Otokar Cobra APCs. The Turks field them in the Kurdistan provinces of SE Turkey and in Afghanistan.
