    The Panhard VBL (Vehicule Blinde Leger) or LAV (Light Armored Vehicle) armored scout car was developed in 1988. It is also referred as the M-11. This vehicle was intended for French rapid reaction forces and for export customers. More than 2 300 of these scout cars were built for home and export markets. The VBL has been used in many peacekeeping operations.
    The VBL provides protection against small arms bullets and artillery shell splinters. NBC protection system is fitted as standard. It has a payload of 1 ton, including crew and armament.
    Vehicle is armed with a roof mounted 7.62-mm or 12.7-mm machine gun. Panhard has proposed over 20 models of the VBL, fitted with various armament.
    Vehicle is powered by the Peugeot XD3T turbocharged diesel engine, developing 105 horsepower. The Panhard VBL is fully amphibious after a short preparation. On water it is propelled by a single propeller at hull rear. Central tyre pressure system is fitted as standard. Vehicle can be airlifted by most medium military transports.

    Correct. The most noticeable difference between MARPAT and AOR2 is the fact that the pattern on MARPAT is horizontal, while on AOR2 it's vertical.
    That and the colours are different, obviously.

    Some (rusty) Iranian Mig-29s on display at Tabriz airbase in new images released by IRNA news agency

    [LEFT][*******#666666][FONT=Lucida Grande]Among the images made public by the news agency, some depict some (quite “rusty”, or at least dirty) Mig-29s, along with F-5Es and “Saeqeh” (Thunder) an indigenously modified version of the American F-5 Tiger, whose twin tails and blue colour are loosely reminiscent of the Blue Angels.[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#666666][FONT=Lucida Grande]Generally speaking, the flying F-14s and F-4s recently exposed in the Russian Knights pictures taken during the return trip of the team from Bahrain International Air Show seemed to be in better conditions than these Mig-29s: at least one of the Fulcrum on display is unserviceable (it lacks both engines).[/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]
