Book Review
Robert Skipper's MRAP CD
Robert Skipper's MRAP Walkaround DC
  • RG-331

by: Joe Szczygielski [ MOTHER ]

introduction
Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) is the latest vehicle in a line of combat and defensive vehicles produced in the United States. They are supplied for a wide range of tasks including troop transport, artillery support, and command and control. Their role has gradually shifted to dedicated engineering and Explosives Ordnance Disposal (EOD) as the mission parameters changed. Variants include the Cougar, MRAP and the Buffalo all configured in 4X4 or 6X6 layout.
Several thousand of the MRAP vehicles have been delivered to the US Armed Forces. A large number of Cougars were ordered by the United States Marine Corp after it was reported that no troops had died in more than 300 IED attacks on US Army Cougars.
Currently there are five countries using the MRAP;
Canada
United Kingdom
Iraq
Poland
Additionally, the United State, Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force use the vehicle.
the cd

Robert Skipper (18Bravo) has released a new photo reference CD which contains series of workarounds of the Cougar, the RG-33, and the Maxx Pro 4x4. Robert has compiled over 250 photos of these vehicles using a high-resolution camera. Each CD is delivered in hard protective case. Looking at the samples you can see the photos are crisp and clear. Each of the vehicles are identified by their own folders.

Also as a bonus there are several dozen photos containing some great interior shots of the different seating arrangements and the many other surprise photos.

For those who plan on building the Cromwell Models Cougar MRAP resin kit then this CD is for you.
You can purchase the CD directly from Robert Skipper (18Bravo) right here on Armorama. The cost is $14.99 plus shipping.
