Casspir
















These Casspirs were stationed at Kutum. These are armed with twin 7,62mm FN MAG general purpose machine guns, although in South Africa we call them Light Machine Guns. Casspirs have been faithful servants to many South African soldiers in the past and have ensured the safety of many fighting men. The conditions in Sector 6 are ideal for the rugged high-speed cross-country abilities of the Casspir. Posted by Picasa

I like your big truck - I could use one of these to get to work - no more traffic jams!

Mutley, these are actually not trucks. Trucks are not armoured with weapons on them. A Casspir is an MPV (Mine Protected Vehicle). They carry soldiers to the battle and back and carry large water tanks and lots of food. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

How much do they cost - where could I buy one - could I fill the water bottles with champagne?

Mr Werner:
I am an argentinian marine lieutenant. I am doing a research about appropiated vehicles for de 4gw, and conventional combat. I have a few questions about your Casspir. Is it good in all terrains? Does it has any anfibious capability?. Thank you for your cooperation

Hi anonymous, I was based in township violent area of eastern cape 22 years ago and slept in tents for 90 days tour of duty and spent 12 hours a day sitting in a Casspir. I also got to drive it through derelict buildings and climb very steep inclines easy no problem; it has a weak point though: MUD ! since it weighs 18 tonnes and has only 4 wheels we often got stuck during heavy rains while driving through grassland fields[ where cattle were kept] When the tow bar from another Casspir was tied up to try and unstuck us ,the other one too gets stuck up to the axles !
Top speed was 85kph on road and 1000kms on one tank possible.
