Here's a new one for the UK...
Panther MLV (LMV)
Multipurpose Light Vehicle.


The most recent development in the armoured vehicle range is the Multirole Light Vehicle (MLV). An all new 4x4 tactical scouting vehicle specifically developed for the operational requirements of the twenty first century. This vehicle combines speed and protection with stealth and tactical versatility. MLV is light weight, armoured against small arms, shell fragments and mines and is readily air transportable: key characteristics required in meeting the increasing need for rapid deployment of troops and equipment.

That just looks like a swamp buggy to me.

No, I was thinking more like what Chinawhite posted, but with some lunatic standing up behind the driver, swinging a .50cal around. You know, for mobile fire-support in, what do the call it, asymmetrical warfare? Maybe I was imagining things, or extrapolating from something else, or just got the wrong end of the stick. Happens sometimes.

Looks almost.......American!!!!
Seriously, it seems to me China is following the way the U.S. military is developed.

Yeah, much more like that.

Only with a Browning M2HB instead of the anti-material rifle and a milan instead of the, well, whatever the designation is for the launcher.

The thing I ?heard? (maybe) about was definitely a straight up quad bike, not a jeep type vehicle. I had the idea that the second guy would stand on the rear to use the weapon. Makes you a bit of a target, I guess. Standing behind the vehicle would seem much smarter. Put the driver's kevlar in front of you!

The USMC's new KLS650 that runs on diesel

I want one, my "daily driver" is the civillian version, non diesel.

KLR650 Carrier Ops, What I find odd is that they get nonreflective rotors but still have the stock fork reflectors

Easy enough to remove in times of conflict and illegal to drive on the road without them (probably).

I dunno, 650s are bloody heavy machines, not at all easy to muscle around in the bush. Not like 2/350s or even 400s. However, the deisel option is pretty obviously useful.

Got to have some serious torque for a bike, that's for sure.

edit:and the carrier ops link describes them as being KLR 250 D8s. All I'll say is those are the biggest tanks I've ever seen on a 250. Someone planning to ride the Sahara without a fuel stop?

The 650 isn't really that heavy if you're a larger rider. My yz250 feels like a really heavy mtb, but i outweigh it by about 20-30lbs. The KLR's are like tractors rather than racers, but they I want the diesel for torque, last week i didn't quite have enough, fell front wheel in a ditch and went OTB.

BTW the caption is wrong on the site, there is a KLR250 but those aren't it. The rear rack is stock 650, and if those were 250's then those guys are like 5' tall. The only part it shares with the 250 is the headlight fairing.

The KLR250

The military diesel/bioD. version is now being offered for sale to the public for somewhere around $18,000 IIRC. Here's the powerplant.

Exactly. Just look at their stance. I stand that wide on my Bol d'Or, but not my 200 trailbike.

The Armstrong MT-500 was used by the British in the Falklands War, They now use a lighter version of it made by Harley Davidson.

The British used to use the Can Am Bombardier before the Armstrong. Belgium still use them today.

I think you talk about the Dingo (the old...)?

Dingo mk1 :


after it's the ferret :


the fox is the one with the 30 mm rarden gun:



this turret was feet on scorpion vehicles to make the actual sabre (a second hand scimitar).

In africa it talks to me : the aml (panhard)



its south african version : elan



still a panhard : the amphibious erc 90 sagaie (replace aml)





cool light armoured fast wheeled vehicles
