So is the windscreen a option? or will it never have one?

Juddy, it only took us 5 minutes to cut our Perentie cabs down including folding windscreens.
Add 10 minutes to remove the G screens and another 10 to fit the gun mount bars and wire protection/ brace bar.
I don't like how the Arnie speck 'ROPS'is only bolted to the storage boxes.

Sixty, please tell me there is a decent sub-frame?
Kind Regards, Barefoot Dave.

I think it would have been a very sad day for land rover when the army got Mercedes to supply all their vehicles.

W/screen, canopy and canvas doors come standard. As pictured is the 'operational'(?) setup.
ROPS is mounted to module, is mounted to chassis, etc. ROPS is removable for air transport.

The ROPS is too high to fit in what Aircraft?

Thanks Al. On balance, still a much improved setup than the RFSV.
Remove ROPS for Air?
That adds an interesting element to the insertion phase.

Umm....yes.
Tyres, suspension, chassis are not able to be changed. The module is mounted as close to chassis as possible. The rear pax seat is as low as it can be and the ROPS is as low as it can be, taking into account passenger head clearance and ease of entry/egress.   ;)

Pilbarra gets G SRV.
"The regiment expects to receive up to nine new G Wagons"
Wait what??
Pilbarra hopes to put 4 VM patrols on the ground at any one time?! Lofty ideals  :P
