Somebody on that site said they had heard that 170 had been purchased, but we'll just have to wait. 170 ain't bad, but a few hundred more would be even better (or more). Let's hope that 170 is only the first batch.

There, I found something. Apparently Level 5 is "High-Powered Rifle Protection", will protects against most anything the cartels have except a .50 cal. and obviously a AT weapon. Oshkosh also claims the design will help protect the crew from mines and IED's because of the "V" shaped bottom.
Oh hell yeah i think so too...whats the point buying an armoured vehicle that can be penetrated by a 7.62x39mm round
Look at the bright side, if the Sandcats don't work, their next purchase is going to be a helluvah lot meaner. But I do think they'll do the job of fighting the cartels, since even the Federal Police's "Rinocerontes" have been pretty effective and I don't think they have that many of them.
Well for the love of god i hope i dont get see reports of IED's used agains Securtity forces. thats the last thing everybody wants..i hope this purchase of Sandcats go smoothly...umm by the way wats the translation for sandcat in spanish? Arena del Gato or gato de las arenas? lol
