The vehicle is awesome but what it is used for is disgusting I agree

2019-10-22 18:48:27 UTC  

well yes

2019-10-22 18:48:30 UTC  

What the hell do they need a Casspir for in the US?

2019-10-22 18:48:43 UTC  

uhm chicago

2019-10-22 18:49:20 UTC  

No, its tacky. Especially with the huge silver letters.
And those vehicles will sooner or later be beaten up to death any beyond, and suffer of the extreme price of spares, ending on a scrap-sellers porch.
Just like all the other MRAPs departments have gotten for free, ignoring the huge upkeep cost.

I love the Casspir, but this is disgusting. 😄

2019-10-22 18:50:11 UTC  

My bet is all that silver stuff on it would be removed after its first use

2019-10-22 18:50:29 UTC  

Could be on there just for the "parade"?

2019-10-22 18:51:15 UTC  

You can also see how flipping massive the Casspir is next to those people.

2019-10-22 18:51:46 UTC  

It's difficult to get an idea of how big it in photos usually.

2019-10-22 20:34:31 UTC  

Apparently they use it as a swat bus or something

2019-10-22 20:35:14 UTC  

But the shit he sticked on the side looks kak

2019-10-22 20:35:24 UTC  

Then that's alright. I assumed it was used as an everyday vehicle by the sherrif's department. That would be completely overkill which sorry to say... America has that reputation.

2019-10-22 20:37:38 UTC  

The Casspir does look damn good in black though

2019-10-23 08:03:56 UTC  

Forgive me if you all have already seen or are aware of it

2019-10-23 08:04:36 UTC  

A small knysna outfit uses a buffel on the fireline. This is their new kit - the last one didn't fare so well

Yeah they couldnt get it moving because of the weight of the water and melting tires so they had to leave it

2019-10-23 11:23:07 UTC  

Are there any good pictures of the Stormjaers? Can't seem to find any on Pinterest or Google Images

2019-10-23 11:24:24 UTC  

@AllezVites awesome! Never saw it before.

2019-10-23 18:21:10 UTC  

Yeah - it is interesting.

2019-10-23 18:25:51 UTC  

IMO the buffel was a contributing factor to the fatality. Military surplus gives you added confidence which encourages you to take risks you may otherwise not have. Similar to American Football vs. Rugby. Football players hit way harder because they think the helmet protects them, but in the end they have way more cases of brain damage.

In the above instance, these fellows went into a plantation without any backup. Probably thought the water and vehicle were enough protection. RIP to the poor fellow and I'm not saying I could have done it any better myself in the heat of the moment. Just think it's interesting.

2019-10-23 20:43:23 UTC  

Ja no

2019-10-23 20:43:40 UTC  

These okes didnt know proper fires then

2019-10-23 20:43:58 UTC  

Going in alone against the wind is a clearcut death sentence

2019-10-25 11:45:55 UTC

2019-10-25 11:50:24 UTC  

As dit neti heeltyd gebeur het nie

2019-10-25 21:27:56 UTC  


2019-10-26 12:31:54 UTC  

Nice! Pity it is only for boats. Would be nice to have a ground version.

2019-10-26 12:39:04 UTC  

South African navy never gets any love...

2019-10-26 13:02:27 UTC  

and cape town doesnt look like that lol

2019-10-27 11:32:04 UTC  

Eish what a slog of a game SA vs Wales

2019-10-27 11:32:32 UTC  

So many fuck ups that I really, really hope are not repeated in the final.

2019-10-27 11:49:30 UTC  

Who won?

2019-10-27 11:50:56 UTC  

19-16 SA - Wales

2019-10-28 12:19:11 UTC  

Lets just hope they play better this weekend

2019-10-28 12:19:20 UTC
