Re: The New SUV Grocery Getter
hehehe, actually I don't think its a landing hook, I think either its a snorkel or more likely a antenna of some sort, but just possibly a periscope for some reason. The door is in the rear though. It was one of the submissions for the Austrlian Bushmaster project. They are looking somekind of IMV (Infantry Mobility Vechicle). The min. requirements were to carry 9 soldiers and gear, fuel and supplies for 3 days (including at least 270 Liters of water) a range of 600-1000 klicks cruising at 90 Kph on highway (what is that in mph anyways?) and have the offroad ability of a Nissan Pathfinder....er, I mean Unimog. This prototype is actually on a Unimog chassis. Pretty cool, eh? I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a Unimog except for parts. And yes, I enjoy a good military vechicle. Some day I would like to restore one, maybe an old Dodge M37 Weapons Carrier or M43 Ambulance.
