Description

This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.

From the manufacturer:

The Buffalo is built by Force Protection Inc as a Class III Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) armored vehicle. It was based on the highly successful South African Casspir, but is larger and uses US 6x6 drive truck components. It features a “V” shaped hull to deflect mine blasts of up to 21kg of high explosive under any wheel. It also has an armored body resistant to 7.62 NATO small arms ammunition. The Buffalo is intended for route clearance and has an articulated arm used to check the ground for mines and IEDs. A video camera weapon station is also provided so the crew do not have to leave the vehicle to fire their weapons. Over 200 are used by the US Army, more used by the UK, France and Canada. The latest vehicles are fitted with BAe Systems Slat Armor to protect against rocket propelled grenades (RPG). The slats effectively break up the warhead before it hits the vehicle. 

This kit includes photo-etched parts and decals for US markings.
