The Striker in post No 9 is a beauty thats the primary difference , jokes apart i could make out the folowing difference-
1. Chassis is a hybrid of Bolero Invader (rear) and Scorpio (front) hence the IFS with 4wd
2. Body is that of Invader completely unlike the in post No 5 which is bolero front end and MM rear end and a shortened chassis of Bolero 4wd but with differences.
3. Suspension of both vehicles are obviously different as the rear in post no 9 is overslung inverted leaf which is that of invader and obviously the front is IFS VS leaf in post 5
4. There is a difference in the windshield as this can be folded unlike fixed type you get for invader. Actually this has transformed the looks of the vehicle along with round head lamps instead of squared ones
5. The doors are of Bolero where as the one pictured would have had doors that of MM series and not Boleros
6. Engine i suppose is CRde and i strongly feel that steering is power assisted unlike the vehicle displayed on post 5
5. Gear box could be 5 speed NGT with manual shift transfer case and has automatic locking hubs.
Thease are the differences i see. Now over to you.

MM Striker – a versatile new generation general purpose light military vehicle. it has been designed and developed at MDS-Land Systems is Mahindra Special Military Vehicles (MSMV) facility at Faridabad.
the new striker is a major improvment over the previous striker whch was a cross between a MM550 and Bolero front!
i can imagine how it will be recieved by the public when it comes for public use through auctions after completing its duty in the Indian Army!

Off Topic, but why do Indian 4WD vehicles like Safari/Scorp/Bolero 4WD etc have to have the front hub locks sticking out a couple of inches from the wheel when vehicles like Ford Endy, Fortuner etc can have them integrated into the diff without it sticking out waiting to get smacked by a rock?
Is it a cost or engineering issue?
