Production of mine-resistand vehicles is rising
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Production of mine-resistand vehicles is rising

Hi Folks!

Ran acrossed this article in the Sunday paper by Bruce Smith of the Associated Press.

"LADSON, S.C. Almost three years ago, about a dozen people working in a largely empty factor turned out one of a new breed of armored vehicle called the Cougar."

"Now, Force Protection Industries, Inc. employs 385 spead through three buildings, and each day they build one of the large mine-resistand vehicles...." "And more workers will soon be lining up on the assembley floor."

"BAE Systems Land & Armaments Operating Group has been awarded a $445 million contract to build light armored vehicles for the Iraqi army."

"Force Protection is a subcontractor on the contract, which calls for 378 Courgars at $180 million, said Micael Aldrich, vice president of sales. Eventually, as many as 1,050 could be build."

"The bad guys don't like these vehicles. Aldrich said. We are coming up on three years, and we have not had close to a fatality. The worst we have had is a broken wrist."

(My note: that sounds like a well designed vehicle for this type of war so far.)

"Technical Solutions Group, formed in 1997 in Claifornia, took over a former propeller shop in North Charlestion in 1999, and there it worked on mine-resistand technology. Force Protection bought the company four years ago."

Spot Report!
Sgt, Scouts Out! Smile
