    We also got near a hundred sagie’s, same as the 6 wheeled ones, the french has deployed in mali. We are certainly packing quite an impressive cache of weapons.

    Also deployed are the 3 ton trucks.

    There is a distinctly military feel to the Landcruiser which eludes the ubiquitous Hilux. I am so glad that the Landcruiser is making a very strong entry and they are appearing in the form of intelligently configured gun-trucks. NA need to sustain this effort.

    @Oga Henry. Yeah, man. I did say last January that I SAW a Nigerian Army Panhard Sagaie AFV on the tarmac of Bamako Airport, ostensibly after it had rolled off a C130 Hercules plane. And I also saw an Otokar Cobra on a road somewhere inside Bamako. Thanks to China’s CCTV footage.

    We also have lately had 50 units of Pinzgauer All Terrain Vehicles, veterans of the ECOMOG operations, uparmoured and upgunned. We look forward to seeing photos of those soon enough.

      The land cruiser during the early stages of its evolution, made it up to the 6th stage of mount fuji, and it often out performs, the land rover,the us jeep and so on, in off road motor race, the LAND in the name,was given to it by its designer,from the british LAND rover………it was first developed by the japanese after they invaded philipiness, and saw an old american Bantam jeep in a base and took it back to japan, and it was the basis of their own developement of the LAND CRUISER……. This vehicle is a military technology just like the hummer and land rover.
