What a Rig!

I wonder just how that thing would progress if it wasn't pulling all that weight?  Then again it might help a little by putting more weight on the front tracks.  Looks like something that the Ruskies might have dreamed up.

The "trailer" is powered as well, if it wasn't for the tralier he would have gotten stuck several times IMHO!!

Here some info Al, it is a Hagglunds Bandvagn 206, developed for the Swedish Army, but it appears that many countries use these for extremme conditions, and from what I read even the USA.

 Here are some more videos from Youtube.

Some military action.

I guess they sorta float!!

And of course the Russian have to always go BIGGER!!!

If the BV206 is a BEAST then this is a monster!!

Its called a SUSV

An acquaintance  I knew back home in AK, with more money than sense, bought one of those dang things. He spent more time fixing it than using it. They work okay in a some terrain...but rocks of any sort demolished it in short order. The idler bogeys were particularly susceptible to damage. He did get it stuck in a swamp once that I know of....cost him 7 grand to get a D10 out into the boonies to extract it from the goo. He sold it shortly after that. 

When off road....lighter is better. :old:

Learned something new this morning! Everybody back home just calls them SUSV's because thats what the Army calls them. Not as many of them around anymore. Mostly HEMTT's and now STRYKR's

I spent a LOT of time on Ft Richardson outside of Anchorage as the warranty rep for OshKosh. I performed warranty recalls on hundreds of HEMTT's. Which mostly consisted of removing a grease zerk from the streering column and securing the harness with super huge zip ties to keep it from chaffing on the column. Ahhh...the good old days. Easiest job I ever had. The hardest part was tracking each unit down. Amazing how the Army could loose a frickin HEMTT...:25r30wi:
