Is the Foxhound the best "utility" vehicle in production?
Above you see pics of the 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment (The Vikings) in Afghanistan operating their Foxhound vehicles.
I don't quite know how the Brits are marketing them but in my opinion they're next gen utility vehicles in the same vein as the Humvee but optimized to be mine resistant.
Most new utility vehicles are...to include the JLTV contestants. But this is a design that is already in production (General Dynamics) and is available now.
Is this the Foxhound the best utility vehicle in production? I think a case can be made...the only thing holding it back is terrible marketing and a lack of awareness among foreign militaries. Too bad. This thing should be a best seller.
