Below is a link that you may find interesting. It is about various SADF prototype and specialist vehicles.
You will have to register to see the pictures, but it is free, easy and well worth it. Probably the best such discussion on the net.
There are a couple of Sesspir pictures in the thread, so it would be good if you commented on there due to you actually having seen or been in the vehicle.
I took this pic this morning.
My-my, are there plans in order to maybe resurrect this vehicle?
So a few weeks back I went to the middle of nowhere to watch the Air Force blow things up. Here are some pictures of said weapons-display!
Hawk Strafing Run (target was 1km out)
Rooivalk 70mm rocket attack
Epic photos Reno! That shot of three Oryx helicopters firing flares simultaneously is especially awesome, as far as I know it may be the first time they've done that for a demo.
I still love the sound of the Hawk's cannon, it's very distinct and quite different to what I expected it would sound like.
You can't see, but there's actually another Oryx and Rooivalk behind that one dumping flares as well. Definitely quite a show!
