No they have been deployed overseas yet. there is a surprsing tooth to tail issue with them and the AO we have been have not required the aardvark. The MV4 was in liberia but was not used due to limited mined areass

yes the MV4 si the doking.

tooth to tail ratio relates to the fighting element to logs element required to do the job.
