IMI CombatGuard

The AM General Humvee has been out on the battle field for what the US Military thinks is to many year. Its time to get a new work horse, and with little on offer from US contractors, they may turn to a company called Israeli Military Industries who have developed a pretty awesome looking machine called the Combat Guard.

If it was to describe it for someone, I would say its Mr T’s daily offroad vehicle, thick armour plating mixed with massive lift and huge offroad tyres. It not only looks the part but it has the figures to do it justice too. With a 300 horsepower General Motors Diesel engine, and a 95 mph top speed this machine can carry up to eight soldiers down a 70 degree slope or over a 30 inch vertical wall. All while being fully armoured against small arms fire, landmines, and IEDs. In addition to this is has an on board defence system, electronic countermeasures system called Bright Arrow. This system can deflect or destroy guided weapons fired at the Combat Guard before they make contact. Check out this beast in action.

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
