Let's see 'em!




This is the Daimler-Chrysler Ferret...

Manufacturer: Daimler Ltd., Coventry, England.

Developed shortly after the Second World War, the first Ferret prototypes ran in 1949; production commenced three years later. A total of over 4400 of these rear-engined 4x4 scout cars were built before production ceased in 1971.

A Ferret carries two people: the driver, at centre-front; and the commander, in the turret in the middle of the vehicle. (The turret is the same item that’s used on the much larger Saracen armoured personnel carrier.) Motive power comes from a six-cylinder relative of the Saracen’s Rolls-Royce straight-eight petrol unit, propelling the Ferret to a maximum of nearly 60mph. The Ferret is still in service in many territories.

Development of the Mk II and Mk III versions led to a new kind of Ferret, with a flotation screen and larger wheels. Christened by one enthusiast (the late John Jarvis-Walters) ‘Arnold Schwartzenferret’, the Mk IV was not an unqualified success as a swimmer (or as anything else), but led to the development of the Fox light armoured car which saw several years’ production.

I've heard that the Russian is developing (or had developed) a 4wd vechicle use in the battleground, its role similar to the Humvee. Rumors say that its preformance is even slightly better than the Humvee. There is a photo somewhere in the internet, but i can't find it. Anyone heard of that?

I found hovercarfts always fascinating but I always thought they needs too much fuel - and so they have short range. But it looks like I was wrong
. 30 knots x 12 hours = 360 miles


P.S. It should be also resistant to the mines or not? It cannot triger the mine if its flying above it?

mines wont be effected
they dont apply enough pressure on the ground to set them off
hell some tanks can go over mines iv heard
the battle tanks supposedly only apply 4 pounds of pressure onto the ground

Some mines are detonated by metal passing over them.

If a battle tank only applys 4 pounds of pressure to the ground they are using anti-gravity


You could lie underneath one and it wouldn't kill you!

Anyone who knows me knows I love bridgelayers...



Their ability to create thruways where there are none puts a smile on my face...when the enemy blows up a bridge and they start to laugh at us because when can initiate the action, their faces turn white when they see the M-104 Wolverine Bridgelayer. I also like the fact that the bridge can open up like a canopy to protect anyone underneath, which is one of the Wolverines secondary duties!

DA T-90!






The T-90 (Ob.188) MBT is the most modern tank currently in service with the Russian Army. It is a direct descendant of the T-72 MBT (in fact, a renaming of T-72BU) although every single system including the main gun has received a major upgrade.

The T-90 tank retains the basic national tank design concept, i.e. the classical layout, where the main armament is arranged within a rotating turret, the propulsion plant and transmission are located in the hull's rear, and the crew members are seated separately: the commander and the gunner sit in the fighting compartment, and the driver in the driver's compartment.

In addition to the basic model, the T-90K command variant is fielded, and differs in radio and navigational equipment, as well as the Ainet remote-detonation system for HEF rounds.
