I went to the Charleston AFB Air Expo and Force Protection had one of their Buffalos on display.

What a machine! I was talking to a soldier who drives them and a company rep. They told me that there have been zero fatalities in these vehicles. One in Iraq was hit with double-stacked anti-tank mines. Everybody survived and they were even able to drive the truck away.

Cool stuff! Force Protection's website:

That's pretty cool. I take it its not an animal that formly roamed the range?

I used to deliver alot of stuff from Red River AD to Charelston AFB.
They had one getting ready to go to IRAQ, climbed in / on it, really cool vehicle.
Super thick glass on that sucker, cool gun racks and seats too

Buffalo of the animal variety is the first thing I thought too.

Pretty cool!
