    Panther is still a large 4 seat car though. Takes up the same space as a large van. Mowag APC doesn't take up much more road space (only 2m longer) and you can effectivey fit three times as many in it.

    Funny.

    Border patrols are done by troops. LTAV's can't carry a patrol.A Mowag can. Yes the CAV LTAVs would have a role for ISTAR,but not for Inserting/extracting patrols.

    Anyway.If we needed to go armoured but low profile we could always buy more Landcruiser AUV's.
    "Let us be clear about three facts:First of all.All battles and all wars are won in the end by the Infantryman.Secondly the Infantryman bears the brunt of the fighting,his casualties are heavier and he suffers greater extremes of fatigue and discomfort than the other arms.Thirdly,the art of the Infantryman is less stereotyped and harder to acquire than that of any other arm".
