    I want to know for building my scale model only
    I don't want to know their ballistic data or what they are made from.
    Just the size and what do u need those straps for?

    Thank you anyway

    Royal Air Force Typhoon aircraft are pictured following their first mission over Libya in support of UN Resolution 1973. The aircraft arrived on Sunday March 20, followed by a team of engineers and support staff and were over launched for a mission over Libya less than 24 hours later. This was the first deployed operational mission for the Royal Air Force's Typhoon jet, and lasted just under five and a half hours.

    The cockpit of a Royal Air Force Typhoon jet fighter aircraft. Typhoon provides the RAF with a multi-role combat aircraft, capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations, from air policing, to peace support, through to high intensity conflict. Britain, Germany, Italy and Spain formally agreed to start development of the aircraft in 1988 with contracts for a first batch of 148 aircraft – of which 55 are for the RAF – signed ten years later. Deliveries to the RAF started in 2003 to 17(R) Sqn, based at BAE Systems Warton Aerodrome in Lancashire, alongside the factory in which the aircraft are assembled, while detailed development and testing of the aircraft was carried out.

    To build your model you must know the size of a land rover, use that to work out how big the armour panels are by measuring the picture, it's pretty simple maths.
    Have a guess what the straps do, it's pretty obvious.
    Also, maybe be more precise about your questions in future, asking for people to just tell you about armour will not get you good reactions!

    I appreciate what you say, but in all honesty you could be anybody. The lives of British soldiers are still dependent on such armour so the less known about it the better. The Landrover is hardly a cutting edge weapons system, but some things are best not published, and as Bisley_Bob says, you can use a modeller's ingenuity to work out your dimensions.

    RIP Training takes place in Afghanistan 21.03.11



    9,000 service people, up to 250 every day will have to go through the process known as RSOI. It is the final stage of preparation that can last more than a year and brings troops right up to date with the current level of threat and how best to confront it. Arguably the best-trained military, British forces can't afford complacency, especially when soldiering in one of the world's prime danger zones.
