  • The Italians are flat out using their military trucks to deliver the dead to crematoria all around Lombardy. Apparently, the funeralhomes are stacking them high to keep up with the need for rapid cremation.

        Needed too. The Scania 8x8 DROPS came into service in either 06 or 08 and the remaining IVECO DROPS which were still in service at that point have since been waddied....

        • Combined with the fact that almost everything travels by DROPS now...
          The DF were ahead of the curve with DROPS.
          I remember seeing the Sliabh na mBan being loaded onto an early version of DROPS in 1985 on a Hino ZM, though they didn't call it DROPS then, it was an Ampli-Roll Low Loader.

                  • Also there might be some newish Scania Gryphus 8x8 trucks on the market soon, apparently the new Scanias when carrying ISO containers are too tall to go under Dutch Bridges

                      We have a few HX already, but not many. Do we have an armoured HX recovery vehicle?
                      The Scania is a tall truck as it is, making it 4x4 adds greatly to the overall height, Surprised DAF aren't providing a military truck for the Dutch forces any more.

                        The SX & HX look a lot alike but have totally different chassis and suspension systems.
