it seems that even the Humvee vehicles even armored is not enought with insurgents and terrorists using IEDs, remoted detonate car bombs and suicide car bombs. so i was wondering if in urban areas where insurgents are hiding and waiting what vehicle would u pick? based on speed, armor protection, etc. either it be 4 wheel, 6 wheel, or 8 wheels.




i was thinking of this vehicle the xm1117, that i would prefer that provides my needs, like speed, armor protection, but there are other vehicles u can pick.

the Stryker

The Shadow

The South African Rooikat

The Puma made by Italy


The Piranha made by Swiss

PANDUR II 6X6 AND 8X8 LIGHT ARMOURED VEHICLES, AUSTRIA

PATRIA AMV (ARMOURED MODULAR VEHICLE) 8X8 WHEELED VEHICLE, FINLAND

The United Kingdom Panther

The Cobra by Turkey

Russian BTR 80

French Vextra


in anicase if u know ani other vehicle that can do the job equal or better u can post up yer favorite vehicle to deal with a situation like Iraq. like wat wheeled vehicle would u want to be in. no tracks because i want to see wat wheeled vehicle that provides protection and speed while not f**king the roads. the French Vextra looks like a good vehicle to use in urban combat.

A really fast dirtbike, because I'm not a soldier, and if I found myself in the middle of a war, I would want to get the hell out of the combat zone as fast as possible


If I were a soldier though, I might want to be in the Canadian Coyote Reconnaissance Vehicle, which apparently earned a very positive rep in Afghanistan:

I figure the guy that sees the other guy first has an automatic advantage.

Two choises

1 If i have to fight Patria AMV IFV or Patria AMOS mounted on AMV chassis



AMOS

If doing recon (what i'm trained to do) then KTM LC4 400 military



And if i had the choise to decide how to move in hostile urban environment i'd be going on foot, stealthy movement by recon, allways the safest way to go..
