The BV is a tracked (band) wagon (vagon) made (I think) by the Swedes, thus Band Vagon or BV. Its an all terrain transport vehicle which carries 4 in the front and 6 (or as many as you can cram!) into the back cab, which is linked by umblical. The old one was made with a fibre glass body and has an awesomely powerful engine, its amphibious and this new one (above) is armour plated and has a sealed atmosphere (I think-it might just be air con though, knowing how the Forces kit goes...) I drove one (the old one) for about 6 weeks in Oman and it doesn't half get hot in those, perfect for colder climes. They were a lifesaver in Kosovo.

I remember getting zoomed at speed over peat bogs in the Falklands in one of these. We would just hang from the strops in the back - goes up and down crazy inclines too!

Yah! The Yanks we worked with in Kosovo were quite vociferous in singing the praises of their Hum Vee things with regards to terrain crossing. We often undertook them by cutting off the bend of pointy turns, driving straight up the bank and avoiding their traction problems! They would look on in quiet awe/envy...
