Just trying too hard ;-)

Up armored. Fixed ballistic glass. Who knows what level. Lots of interesting pieces and a big-A$$ Land Rover badge so you won't forget. Tacti-cool.

Looks like it could be a "Snatch"

Bulletproof glass...aluminum skinned doors. At least they can identify the riddled bodies because the heads will still be there.

Interesting shape to the door. Losing the shoulder at the trailing edge looks kind of cool.

Several CAV versions look very similar. But is Snatch the military name and CAV the manufacturer name?

Didn't know these came in a brilliant metallic silver?

Looks pretty darn good though!

Based on the rivets surrounding all of the body panels and the flat sides, I'm guessing there's more than just aluminum on those doors. And look at the size of those hinges!

Just a stock (repainted) snatch https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snatch_Land_Rover

Quote:
Manufactured as the CAMAC CAV 100 by NP Aerospace, the "Snatch" conversion was developed with the aid of Ricardo, and is fitted with CAMAC composite armour to offer the crew protection against kinetic energy projectiles and, to a very limited degree, against explosive devices. Its rated "combat weight" (without crew and weapons) is 3,050 kg.[
