Military Vehicles [Swiss/Switzerland]: MOWAG Piranha 3C APC/IFV (Die Schweizer Armee)
The MOWAG Piranha is a family of armoured fighting vehicles designed by the
Swiss MOWAG, which since April 2010 has changed name to General Dynamics
European Land Systems - Mowag GmbH.
The MOWAG Piranha is available in 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, and 10x10 wheel versions.
There are several variants within these versions, giving different degrees
of armour protection and several kinds of turrets, for use in a variety of
roles. Piranha derivatives have been assigned roles as troop transports,
command vehicles, fire support vehicles, tank trainers, and police
Four generations of vehicles have been produced, manufactured by MOWAG or
under license by other companies, and variants are in service with military
forces throughout the world. Piranha derivatives have been manufactured
under license by General Dynamics (Canada), BAE Systems Land Systems (UK),
Komatsu (Japan), Cardoen and FAMAE (Chile), and in the USA. The 8x8 US Army
Stryker vehicle is derived from the Canadian LAV III which in turn is based
on the Piranha, as is the LAV-25 family in service with the USMC. The
Australian Defence Force also has its own modified version of the Piranha I
8x8 known as the ASLAV (Australian Light Armoured Vehicle). The ASLAV is
operated by two cavalry regiments (the 2nd Cavalry Regiment and 2nd/14th
Light Horse Regiment) and is used in the armoured reconnaissance and
armoured personnel carrier roles. Some variants, like the United States
Marine Corps's Light Armored Vehicle-25 (LAV-25) and its derivatives, are
equipped with propellers for amphibious use, though their abilities are
limited to sheltered waters.
Hummer Extreme Off Road | Amazing Hummer Video
This amazing Hummer Extreme Off Road Video shows the true capabilities and
history of the Hummer. Rock Climbing, Mudding, Water Crossing and "Hummer
Snow Challenge" and much more.
Born from a military background, it's not surprising to discover that
go-anywhere attitude backing up the Hummer brand. This mindset was best
exemplified by the late Hummer H1
Realizing that not everyone would want the civilian equivalent of a Humvee,
the company added the Hummer H2, available as an SUV and as a pickup dubbed
the H2 SUT (sport utility truck). Still plenty capable, the H2 shares its
platform with the Chevrolet Silverado, whereas the most recent product to
debut, the Hummer H3 and H3T (the pickup truck version), is based on the
Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon.
Hummer was created as a civilian version of the Humvee (HMMWV, High
Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle), a military vehicle developed by AM
General during the 1980s. The first model, simply called the Hummer, was
launched by AM General in 1992, seven years before General Motors took
ownership of the company. After that change, the Hummer was renamed the
Hummer H1 and GM worked on expanding the brand's line up and broadening
exposure to the mainstream market.
The results of those efforts could be seen in the Hummer H2, a rugged
off-road SUV that offered attitude and sheer mass not found in many
competing vehicles. A pickup version of that utility vehicle, dubbed the
Hummer H2 SUT, followed. By 2006, the Hummer H1 had reached the end of its
line, but the resulting void made room for the Chevy Colorado-based Hummer
H3, available with a five-cylinder engine in standard guise or as the
V8-powered Hummer H3 Alpha. A pickup version, the Hummer H3T, is also
available, as is the more luxurious Hummer H3x.

Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal
floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for
heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and
emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the
world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for
unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its
purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and
powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up
to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in
amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to
transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become
stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with
cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability,
turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires,
VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft
snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has
independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable
clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab
while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed,
which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50
mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost
$700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed
rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine
models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international
purchase in late 2012.

Autosital - Essai Iveco Massif 3.0 HPI 146 ch SW 5 portes
Sobre, sans fioriture ni suréquipement, il aurait pu s'appeler rustique.
Mais les italiens d'Iveco lui ont préféré le nom tout aussi évocateur
de Massif. Avec lui, le constructeur s'ouvre les portes d'un marché de
niche, celui des véhicules utilitaires 4x4.
