Hi Chaps, I have driven a couple of PS10's while training troops for NATO deployment all with the 2.8 engine and what looked like a santana LT85 box very nice truck, quiet & fast ( for a log burner) the suspension is parabolic leaves & very good ride is equal to a 110.

The seats are very nice & as there is no seat box they have a frame allowing a wide variety of after market seats, proper dash board though a bit plastic ala 70's jap car but doors that seal.

only bad point from my view was the roof was plastic with moulded in headlining therefore i'd not use a roof rack on one

Took it offroading around salisbury and it did everything asked of it.
basically I'd have one.!
pics attached of mates ps10 crew cab just after he got is sorry for the quality was on my phone

I did see an AP version used by the polish army and it was fantastic, full ST or removable fold up platic hard top with removable or fold down door tops.
sadly no pics as camera or phone were not permitted have a look @ the bottom of the page here:

regards all

As for Spain having only 4 troops in the 'stan if their police are anything to go by they only need the 4, probably 1 from each service to show commitment[img]images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img].

The inqisition camo is designed to blend in with the poppy fields

Nothing meant by it. I think Spain is a beautiful country. Just not exactly known for Military superiority.

As for the more privilages, I believe you. The US used to be the most free country in the world. It doesn't surprise me at all that we are not anymore.

But, as an FYI, my truck is licensed and legal to drive. I don't but I could. I just have to fix mudflaps.

Yeppers. It's full grown. I take used to drive it around town a good bit. Don't now only because it's almost always in some form of dissasembly in the offseason.
