G Wagen Comes Down Under

The ADF has announced it will be replacing it’s land rover fleet with the Mercedes G Wagen. The off road merc still doesn’t provide any sort of protection against mines or IEDs but the vehicle has a lot more power than the rover enabling it to carry more bolt on armor. It seems an interesting choice and in the end it probably came down to the best bang for your buck but at least we didn’t end up with HUMVEEs.
