    Default SUVs for SECDET

    [FONT=Verdana]In 2010, SECDET transitioned from the ASLAV to up-armoured Landcruiser SUVs. The SUVs come in two variants – a 4.2 tonne Series 76 and the 4.6 tonne Landcruiser that the Close Personal Protection team (CPP) uses. For standard escort tasks, they place five troopers in each vehicle – a driver, commander and three operators.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana]
    In what they call a ‘motorcade’, the CPP take the diplomats or VIPs in the other, heavier Landcruisers, with the Counter-Attack Team – the troopers – in the other Series 76s. 31 March 2010[/FONT]
