Hi! Seen this today in Gagetown, with manufacturer's licence plate on (from Michigan). It's made by international. It's  higher than an Humvee.
There is a pick-up type of box in the back (6 foot).

That's the same one I saw on Friday, in the Armour School lines.

Slightly bigger than the LSVW, I thought, dimension wise.  There was another one there as well, that I didn't recognise.

From the web site.
Powered by a 300-horsepower International V8 diesel engine with 530 lb.-ft. of torque, additional armor does not adversely affect the vehicle's superior payload ability, towing capacity or durability.

Good stuff! At least they learn from the past. Not like trying to add armor to an already sluggish vehicle (up armoured LSVW for example).

The thing I have no clue about is: Are the manufacturers are always showing up only when requested (part of procurement programs), or they just come to display their new stuff?

I like the front end, the grill looks mean  :rage:
Although in some of the video it looks like it could be prone to roll over...

Hmm good question...I just read the stuff on the site:

Other features include:

Available all-wheel drive capability
Armored cab available in standard, extended and crew configurations
C-130 transportable
LED military lighting
Fold-down brush guards
Electric winches
Unaided Fording Capability of 40 inches minumum
24 volt NATO connectors
Outstanding maneuverability
Armored fuel tanks
PowerPack
Pintle hook
Multiple body configurations
Low-profile entry/egress
Best in class military cab (for all trucks)
Excellent payload, towing capacity
Armor ready

I guess that last bit that says "Armor ready" might mean something.

I guess if the Slovenians can get their G-Wagons with factory CD players, then why can't we?

Yah but does it have a coffe cup holder?
The military is mean enough to take away the radio in most DND vehicles.
I'm sure even the generals in charge of procurement like their Tim Hortons in their cup better than on their lap.

SMP vehicles do not have factory am/fm radios but commercial pattern vehicles have factory air and am/fm radios.  It's only a matter of time before they start to get MP3 / CD/DVD players to go along,
