    Jackal, the UK military's latest vehicle is put through its paces at Camp Bastion, southern Afghanistan. The new vehicles will give front line forces a much improved capability over the current weapons platform, the Land Rover based Weapons Mount Installation Kit, or WIMIK. With improved armour, off-road mobility and load-carrying ability the Jackal is far more technologically advanced and suited for its reconnaissance and close fire support tasking than its predecessors [Picture: Corporal Ian Houlding]

    The Jackal? Christ they're running out of names. Granted MWMIK wasn't exactly 'catchy' but Jackal? Could have at least gone along the lines of some british dog of some sort.

    Can I ask where the photo was published and if there are anymore?

    Jackal's ok IMHO an arid land dwelling predator known for it's ability to range far and wide at speed...ok in my book, if they had gone for a British animal, knowing the MOD's taste in unusual name's for certain thing, it would probably be called ferret II
