Netherlands ISR Company in Mali (pics)

NOTE:  I have always been a fan of the Fennek  Recon Vehicle.  It carries a wide array of weapons, can be equipped with a mast sensor system, has a three man crew, can move out at high speed...and most of all its amphibious (don't know if its "Marine Corps" amphibious but it can cross rivers).  The only question I have is if its IED resistant, but by the looks of things it must be because they used it to great effect in Afghanistan and now Mali.  Wonder why it hasn't popped up on the radar of the Army or Marines?  Article on the Dutch Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance Company's (ISR Coy) mission and experiences here.
