Tough Rig

The vehicle is called an MRAP

Mine Resistant/Ambush Protected vehicle - and it's the latest thing in the US arsenal. In this incident in Afghanistan (note the lush land we're fighting for in background) the ten men the vehicle carried were unharmed and the driver had minor injuries. If this had been your pick-up truck, the results would have been different.

Wow, that sure is one tough rig! It's amazing what is being made these days, just when I wonder what next, well here it is.

And where did you get your sunglasses? :-)
