But can take a 14mm bullet! (think it's 14, read it this morning ;) )

Yep that's a pretty heavy duty truck and it'll stop more than a 14mm bullet, big mines rattle it but the cab stays safe, cab doors are hydraulically powered open and closed cause they are so armoured.  Incidently keep all body parts clear of the door shut when the door is closing because it doesn't stop til it's fully closed, leaving your body bits detached.

Drives nicely being 8x8 with diff locks all round and auto shift, you just point it in the general direction and hit the loud pedal. Just a shame the british military didn't buy them.  The Canadians got them as well as the Aussies.
