Armor: SAS Supacat

Archives

September 19, 2007: Britain is equipping its commando and infantry units with a new armored truck, the four ton Supacat MWMIK 4x4. It is armored on the bottom to give protection from mines, but is largely open up top. The vehicle mounts 12.7mm and 7.62mm machine-guns, as well as a 40mm automatic grenade launcher. The Supacat chassis has been around for a while, and comes in 6x6 versions as well. It has excellent cross country capabilities. Top speed of the MWMIK is 80 kilometers an hour, and the vehicle normally carries four people. The initial buy, mainly for the SAS commandos, was 130, but more are planned.
