    That may depend on the interior configuration of the incoming C295 MPA's. Three workstations or five ect. Fully RoRo or fixed stations. There maybe space for a single vehicle but that would be sub-optimal because deploying four man ARW tactical patrols piecemeal and not a coherent tactical troop is not ideal. The ideal is to have a dedicated utility transport obviously. But seemingly the powers that be cannot get their heads around that at present.

    In fact up to three MRZR-D4's can be airlifted by a single C-295W. A single MRZR-D4 fits inside an NH90 TTH. Awesome little machines.

    It'll fit in a Chinook, surely a 295 is bigger?

    The design criteria the Dutch had was it should fit inside a CH-47 which mean it also fits into a C-27 but is still too large for a C-295.

    Looks an interesting piece of kit.

    Just for a bit of perspective the German KSK has recently put out a tender to replace their similar vintage Serval SOV's

    Following on from the MALI thread, is it time the 2004 F350 were replaced? Things have changed since then, WMIK is old news, those who used to use it either use LTAV type vehicles or something with basic protection against IED such as Jakal?
    LTATV such as those based on Polaris MRZR-4 or even the GDOTS Flyer seem to be in widespread use in combat theaters by SOF worldwide.

    Only when the ARW is pulling them out of trouble in somewhere like Chad or Mali because they ignored warnings and want a photo op with some unfriendly locals!
