Talking Cool Pic

Ever see this show before. If I'm not mistaking those are defender hanging from the Chinook's...No?
It was part of a power point show that was emailed to me. Pretty cool PPS but this one shot REALLY grabbed my attention!

Sorry to disappoint, but those look like Gelandewagens.

The G Wagen was originally designed as a military vehicle for the Shah of Iran for two reasons:
1) he wanted his troops to roll Mercedes
2) he was a large shareholder in Daimler-Benz

I think the second photo is cool as well - In the ground photo those guys look like they are haulin' ass. And that is a nice feature to have on the hood... your personal gun rack on the hood rather than a spare tire. I can't believe that 3 of the 4 combatants in the truck are driving in the desert without head cover on.... I guess they took their hats off for the photo op.

I think the G Wagen is built on a Peugeot P8 chassis, which is
a military vehicle, but i'm not completely sure.

It's not P8, P8 is a bike.. it's the Peugeot P4, sorry.
