Thanks for the pictures..

Will be interesting to see how they stand up in long term durability and reliability :-\

I can only imagine how expensive parts and repairs would be! As the G wagon is full of electronics.. :-\

Did you not just say this in the G Wagon RFSV thread?


Why post it twice, exact same wording?

It just becomes jargon.

Moderators,  I move that the Honourable Member no longer be heard.
He doesn't have a Mil. Landie (but professes to want one) , doesn't seem to know
what he's talking about (but thinks he does)  and doesn't seem to offer anything
constructive (but will argue all day that he does)
Perhaps I'm out of line and I'm in the minority.

Sounds like 3/4 of the members on this forum.  ;)

While I agree that some of the posts are repetitive and annoying, as far as I can recall he had never been offesnsive on any of the three or forums he goes on and does seem to respond to the mature guidance that has been provided by other members from time to time.

Unless he becomes a serial rule breaker I think he should be allowed to stay and be nutured by us grumpy old farts as he clearly has an interest in some vehicles and maybe would grow into forum culture.

LandyFan,

if you can get to a day where Land Rover forum members are, start to talk to them face to face, there is years of experience and you will find it will take you years to gain the knowledge so my tip of the day is - don't be impatient you will learn over time.

Ask intelligent questions, respect the answers and then do the recommended research.

FYI, I have been into Land Rovers full on since 1990 (got interested late 70's early 80's when I was your age - 23), nearly 25 years and still don't know as much as the real experts have forgotten!

regards
Scott

What Scott says is 100%, you can learn so much from people by meeting them in the flesh, you might not all ways agree on things, but you will all ways gain some knowledge and some times some fantastic story's, we all can learn be we old or young....

I know they should be verboten, but I heard a rumour today at the barber (font of all the best rumours) was that the G-Wagon delivery program is done and dusted.

I hit Google and... GWgn ist done and dusted at 2146 units,  utilised for Training.

"LAND 121 Phase 3A (Lightweight and Light Vehicles and Trailers) is acquiring a fleet of lightweight and light vehicles for tactical training. The LAND 121 Phase 3A fleet will comprise 2146 unprotected Mercedes-Benz G-Wagons, including specialist modules, and 1799 Haulmark trailers. The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagons are replacing the current fleet of Land Rovers."

Should say some Land Rovers I think.

"LAND 121 Phase 4 will provide a fleet of around 1300 vehicles, with companion trailers, for command, liaison, utility and reconnaissance roles. These vehicles will replace around one third of the Land Rover fleet, with the Protected Mobility Vehicle – Light affording increased force protection in operational environments.
Under an agreement reached in mid-2012 between Thales Australia and the Australian Government, Thales was contracted to supply six prototype Hawkei vehicles and one prototype trailer for further testing and evaluation under the Manufactured and Supported in Australia option. These prototypes were delivered between 13 December 2012 and 23 May 2013. The vehicles are being subjected to a rigorous test program, including communications system integration testing, reliability trials, and survivability testing as well as user assessments.
As the Hawkei is still in the prototype stage, Defence is considering a range of options, including the US-led Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program. Defence also retains the possibility of sourcing a current-generation solution under the project’s Market Available Option."
