Was reading about this rig in Diesel Power a few issues back. Thanks for the up close and personals, interesting rig. I was not aware that PACCAR was the vendor on this. PACCAR was also the builder on the M26 Dragon Wagon.

Very interesting to see the close ups of the interior. Australia has built their own design by Thales Australia that took over the Australian Defence Industries at Bendigo Victoria.

Bushmaster 300 ordered and equipped the Australian Army and these Infantry armoured models are seeing service in Iraq and Afghanistan at the moment. They are built for the harsh Australian outback and bush.



I\'ve actually had a close up look at them when they came down to Fort Queenscliff a couple of years ago. So I borrowed this picture from the army.

Hi good buddy could you kindly put the right hand side and rear view up please. Also do you have an aerial picture taken so one can visualise what is where from the top point of view. Another question I noticed that there is a accelerator or gas pedal and what would be the foot brake peddle if this vehicle is an automatic drive selection type vehicle.
