    Very real. That is UNAMID in Darfur. Nigeria were the first export customers for the highly rated GILA, said to be so good that it outshone the legendary Casspir Mk.I to Mk.IV.

    So much so that Casspir have now come up with a Casspir Mk.VI to reclaim their market leadership. Between the GILA and the Casspir Mk VI, you have two world beaters.

    Anyway, while we are at it, we can still spend $25million to 100 ‘tokunbo’ units of the Casspir Mk.II-Mk.IVs for immediate deployment – which is what India and Uganda did, and then place an order for 100 brand-new GILA and Casspir Mk VI in two equal halfs, for the wars that are sure to come, whether “we reject it” or not🙂

    After ECOMOG, if anyone had predicted Borno and Mali, “God forbid” would have been the refrain. Let’s keep it real. I see a turbulent neighbourhood for years to come.

    Those are Casspir Mk.IV MRAPs. The Army alone own GILA MRAPs. Admittedly, they look 90% similar at face value.

    One giveaway though is that the rear cabin of the GILA has ten ventilators (five a side) while the Casspir has six vents(three a side).

    The Casspir MRAP and the AutoKraz truck are standard heavy-duty issue for the Police Counter Terrorist Unit.

    @ Gen beeg, how many ZSU-Shilka SPAAG does the NA have?, amongst the three that showed up for army day celebration the lead Shilka had number “300” the second Shilka’s number wasn’t too clear but it appeared to be more than “300” the third one’s number was totally obscured.
