Africa Aerospace & Defence exhibition armored vehicles demonstration via Defense Web TV

Wow!  The S. Africans still use the Olifant (the ultimate Centurion tank that no one talks about), the Rooikat (the original mobile gun system that doesn't get enough credit and is still VERY competitive) and the Caspir MRAP (the first real MRAP...ironic really...if you notice the current systems they have so many storage boxes etc..hanging off the sides that they're part of the blast hazard and lack the plain common sense approach with this vehicle).  I like what the S. Africans are doing in a general sense but they seem to be "busying" up their vehicles and they're moving away from the plain aesthetic that I found appealing.  I also look forward to seeing how the Badger performs.
