G-Wagons outfitted with gun shields in Afghanistan
The Geländewagen (G-Wagon) from Mercedes-Benz are used to provide tactical control transport in the fields of command and control, liaison, military police and reconnaissance. This one has been fitted with a new armoured turret.
This is the original version from Mercedes Benz , look the minimal protection for the GunnerWe, the military personnel, were an integral part of the development team. This turret surely represents what the gunner’s need here, in Kandahar, to conduct their daily tasks. I am really proud of the result. [RIGHT]

And this is the "New" protection for Gunner, a 360* protection made by canadian engineer in Afghanistan
It takes approximately one hour for a team of three to install a gun shield.
