First of the new COUGARS enter British Army service
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.

A demonstration of the Army's new bomb-resistant Cougar on Salisbury Plain

The Ministry of Defence has ordered 100 of the wheeled patrol vehicles, which are used by US troops in Iraq and cost more than £250,000 each. They have been taken from US Marine production lines. The vehicles, one of which was demonstrated on Salisbury Plain yesterday, are said to be able to drive over an Iraqi roadside bomb with little more than a shudder.

Lord Drayson, the minister for defence procurement, said: "This is the best there is in terms of force protection. It is an example of the way we have to respond with more agility to the threats which we face."

British equipment on the air conditioned Cougars includes more armour, more sophisticated radios, and electronic counter measures. The tyres are bullet and bomb resistant, and cruising speed is 55mph.

The Cougars and 150 Vector vehicles, also purchased by the MoD, will be delivered in batches to Iraq and Afghanistan over the next six months.

The MoD said Cougars would be in place in Iraq by the end of the year. The Vector vehicles are bigger and more mobile than snatch Land Rovers, which are designed to withstand small arms fire but are vulnerable to roadside bombs.


NOTE the additonal side armour. I presume thats an Applique Armour package? Never seen it before on any of the EOD versions...........

Regards,

BUG
