    I see lots of these on the backs of wagons around Cov, they're a beast!.

    We could do with them some nights on The Aldermoor!

    There's a few suppliers to them around Cov I think, went to a place the other day that does the radio trays or something random like that.

    They're a right tool

    Tom,yes theres a few who supply bits and yes they are a big old unit,am working with Americans and other peeps involved in MoD,some good gizmo's which help our guys an awful lot.
    These vehicles even before our modifications were put into theatre and the norm was by the enemy to disable the vehicle and then turn up and finish off any survivors,on the first encounters with this 'beast' they turned the corner and were no more as a .50 Cal is ferocious.

    The company I was trying for do the armour plates for them, I believe the vehicles themselves are made in South America by the same company then shipped over here for the final touches Armour, ECM etc etc. The job was only some crappy stores job, was advertised at a decent rate then after the second interview turned out this wasnt the case. They asked me to go back for a third interview at a different location, told them to jog on. (In a nice way)

    I had an LR3 (the blue one) for nearly a year, didnt go anywhere dangerous though, just Kuwait and back most weeks. The guy in the photo worked for me as cleaner/translator/gopher but he had degrees and qualifications coming out of his arse. He was granted asylum and allowed to live in the Netherlands if he wanted to but went home to Iraq to earn $200 a month and look after his family, brave man.

    The LR3 was nice, I felt like a rich posh farmer type oooooh arrrrrrrr get orf my land!

    ermm how is it relevant as the cost of living (i.e.a loaf of bread costs 2p in Iraq) is different to here so wages will differ

    I'm not comparing it to here at all, no point doing that....I was just comparing on how different the locals get paid working for different companies over there....

    The translator we had was paid $600 by our company plus $600 by the American engineering firm...

    I WAS comparing the daily wage to a UK equivalent because it's an indicator of economical differences. And I bet $10 a day was a good wage!

    Thanks for that V.
    You are the first person that I have heard who understands what cr6p people quote about how people in other places get paid. It's like they don't uderstand that things are relative. 1 here may be equivalent to 250 or more of their currency, and as said a loaf could cost 2p.

    I think everyone here does understand that it's relative, BUT:
