    What is this?

    Can any of you knowledgeable folks tell me exactly what this vehicle is? I'm pretty sure this picture was taken in Europe somewhere. Kinda' looks like an armored dune buggy! Any information would be appreciated.

    I thought at first that the shoulder-weapon the red beret is holding looks French, but I can't see it well enough to be sure.
    The camo uniform doesn't look German; but I'm not sure about that, either.
    The boots look French.
    It isn't the Swedish/Norwegian border because of the huge fence.
    That's about as far as my experience takes me.

    If you like this "well-armored jeep" sort of thing, the boats used by Hungary to patrol the Danube would knock your socks off.

    I don't know jack about the tech specs on the vehicle, but they are all over Afghanistan. I saw them in use by various European forces.

    Never got inside one, but they look like they'd be rather cramped. Not that a HMMWV is exactly roomy when loaded for battle.

    It's a sneak peek at the '09 Camaro, Chevy decided to scrap the sexy sports car look and opted instead for something people will feel safer in...heard the crash test rating is superb
