A Nifty Design
Japan Ground Self Defense Force units were first provided with the highly mobile, well-defended Light Armored Vehicle since 2002, and it has proven a successful design capable to speeds up to 100km/h thanks to its 160hp diesel engine. It was deployed in Iraq from 2004, and subsequent vehicles were updated with lessons learned from the hard service there, featuring updates such as a rear bracket for fuel cans and the spare tire. Additions such as smoke dischargers and machine gun were made depending upon the unit.
