        Quite easy to hit. Ask anyone in cav who used them as a target for a shoot in the last 10 years.


        Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

            Neither.
            The AML can't engage a moving target while on the move. Anyone engaging it will more than likely find it doing overwatch in a static position. If its on th emove, it's running away, and no longer a threat worth engaging, once it goes beyond 2000m.

            When you make such short posts with a quote, it is impossible to read your mind to establish the type of scenario you had in mind.

              Don't even have to hit as a near miss would pepper the car with shrapnel and kill the crew.

                      The company that got the spares contract, Sofema, have a few interesting offerings.

                            I wish! We could do with medals for piloting AMLs through the city centre with questionable brakes and no power steering

                              Here's one I baked earlier.... Panhard AML90 at an Armoured Corps museum I visited in Israel recently....

                              The one I saw was used by the IDF during the Six Day War in 1967

                              Party Hats (former and current) would have a boner going around this place, it's excellent...

                              My fellow Facebookers will be able to see the full set of pictures in the near future when I get a chance to load them up...

                              Too large in size to load a couple up here...
