    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.

    It's higher than level 3 and 4. Just kidding, let me look into that and see what I can find, or maybe someone else already knows and could tell us. I bet you it will easily stop at least an AK round.

    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.

    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.

    Too bad we can't have an awesome looking forum like that Mexican one has. This one is doesn't even match the background and is the boring old vBulletin default skin. Yuck!
