Snatch Landrovers

Discussion in 'The Corps' started by Suffolk, Jul 10, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Radio 5 live had a small bit about Snatch Landrovers.
    ( I am not in the forces )

    It said that last febuary a Light Protective Patrol Programme was launched and that 400 new Light reinforced vehicles will be ready by 2011/2012. What are these Vehicles and are some already in use.

    Also is the Snatch Landrover still a usefull bit of kit and simply not right for Afganistan?

    I would just like the view of those serving as to the pro's and cons of the vehicle. If this touches a nerve as any one on here has lost a friend in one then my apologises.

    ( I am not in the forces and please excuse spelling and punctuation )

    Thankyou for your time.
  2. That will be Jackal:


    Snatch landrover = gash. Wasn't even good enough for N.I. let alone Afghanistan.
  3. Who manufactures the Jackal?
  4. It was announced just now on the BBC that a woman has been granted a judicial review into the governments refusal to hold an enquirey into the use of snatch landrovers.
  5. Snatch Landrover =Has useful as a lighthouse in the desert

  6. So they will have a steering wheelspanner stowage, I presume
