    I’ll have to wait till i see this baby take over those hilux and deployed all over the north and delta before i can be happy. i can sense the delight in our men when they’ll get to patrol in this rugged beauty.

    With the extra weight,how well will this handle the desert sand…..I know it was gotten from a land cruiser…… But after fixing the amour,what sort of modification was put apart from uprated engine,to improve performance………has it been tested in a sandy region? Driven to the north from lagos, then put through rigorous test,without it been transported on a flat bed trailer……..to test realistic deployment.

      The suspension has been changed(reinforced) to handle the weight. Read the TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER thread. That was EXPLICITLY stated there.

      In Nigeria, armoured vehicles are typically moved around on transporters on inter-city transit. I saw the BTR-3s being brought in and have seen many more. They were not driven overland.

      These PROFORCE APV/ACV have been shot at, had explosive material detonated underneath them and driven over test courses with deep and loose sands to simulate desert conditions. They have been comprehensively tested. The finishing should give an idea of just how thorough their work and quality assurance has been.

      It is a different thing if say they should be deployed in the field.

      Good questions not just desert but in the muddy poor roads with huge potholes. Which is why I would recommend models are tested all over the country in different terrain, desert, urban, hill/ mountain, rain forest etc.
