The Sand Cat (Hebrew: פלסן קרקל‎, also Plasan Caracal)

The Sand Cat (Hebrew: פלסן קרקל‎, also Plasan Caracal)

is a composite armored vehicle designed by Plasan of Israel. It is based on a commercial Ford F-Series chassis shortened to a 2.84 m (112 in) wheelbase by Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier, Manning Equipment[1] of Louisville, Kentucky, United States.[2] Originally designed as a potential replacement for the AIL Storm jeeps of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF),[3] they have since developed numerous versions of the vehicle from 4 to 6 tons to transport up to 8 soldiers.[4] Examples have undergone trials by the IDF in Israel[5] and the US Army at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland.

Another thing, a set of BFG all terains (at least) would be preferable

I agree Hamp, and some doors that will allow a soldier (male or female) to get in and out!
