I can barely recognize that as a UAZ without 9 black cloaked women, bushells of harvested peanuts, and an improvised rocket launcher in the back , as well as an excessive amount of dingle balls and religious muslim stickers all over the front cab.

Are you sure? Oh wait, is that a mortar launcher they're setting up?

I saw several of those Canadian G wagons in Kuwait coming back from Iraq. Was wondering where they were off too. The were a very nice setup.

On a positive note, Russian long term parking is really, really cheap!

What's up with the pan underneath? Does it capture its own dripped oil and reburn it? Oh wait, it's not a Land Rover.

that's standard for military vehicles everywhere. EPA mandate for prevention of oil contamination in the soil. Our military has to put down chock blocks and drip pans everytime we stop. That's where the zombies will get the military; when we get out of the armored vehicles to put down the drip cans! All hope is lost.

Now if the zombies take down the EPA first, we have a fighting chance.

Is the yellow string also an EPA requirement or is that a Canadian theft deterrent? Or is that a wind deterrent?

Presume it is a reminder to pick up the drip pan before driving off

Just can't believe that they are worried about that and making them get out with every stop just to put down a drip pan, considering how dangerous it is. Add that to the fact that it's a G, so it's not like it's going to leak oil... I want to see a photo of a military Rover with one

Military rovers wouldn't have a drip tray... you'd need to park over an emptied swimming pool instead.
