    Dear Sato, you are right.

    my cuban friend said to me that this MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) is 100% locally made and don't have a name.
    This is a 4x4 armored vehicle supplied only to Tropas Especiales and Infanteria de Marina.
    Weighs approximately 5/6t
    Configuration: 2 + 8
    His quantity is impossible to know. We can only guess a slow but steady spread into the Armed Forces (in relation to annual budget available for the armed forces).
    This MRAP is also configured as a C2, command and control.

    The veichle would come from cuban african experiences, especially Angola. It's similar to the South African models (Mamba for example).

    This is the only onfo i have about this nice cuban MRAP.

    You can add this vehicle is based on GAZ-66 chassis, so the engine must be a 115hp gazoline.

    exactly, probably you're right about chassis and engine.

    My friend told me: "...this MRAP is based on a 4x4 chassis (perhaps GAZ-66 or similar) but i don't have info about the engine"

One photo that has stuck in my mind and which I have been trying to find on net ever since was the back end of a Cuban Bear bomber sitting in a run down hanger. If I remember correctly, the article stated that this was a Russian Bear flying with Cuban markings much like Libyan Blinders did over the Med'.
    If my memory serves it was an issue of Air Forces Monthly from roughly (given the time period) 1992, this was an old issue I picked up from a used book store that sold back issues of various magazines.

    Sadly, and before anyone demands this, I have been unable to verify that Russian Bears were ever stationed in Cuba. I am unaware of what model it was (could have been a Beaf-Foxtrot) but I do remember the Fin Flash being very clear but a little worn.
    Very interesting I hope someone can track that photo down!
