to add to that the front grill is sealed as that forms front armor while the air intake is thru the front undercarriage and anyways the vehicles are liquid(water) cooled...

i dont think the front grill is sealed if you see the pictures posted by quadra and by ananth you will know what i am talking about and besides i have seen a live one in the american war museum.
no doubt when the grill is closed the intake is through the front undercarriage. i also know that the vehicles are liquid cooled i never said they were air cooled.
PS- the american army truck still stands in pune and i never said it was a running car that i saw. you want the address you can have a look at it too. i was just saying imagine it in your rear veiw and you will make way for it. i know they are disscontinued.

i was talking about the pictures of the trucks posted sabret00the. this is a fixed armour front with side gill air intakes. it looks like it is based on the hummer platform.
i shall give karl the address and ask him to take pictures of the truck and post it. i am in delhi and wont be going to pune. i wanted to buy the truck till i realised it would not fit in my garage shed through the normal gate which is good enough to fit a normal truck.

^^^ hey buddy this is a Panhard Véhicule Blindé Léger ("Light armoured vehicle") is a wheeled 4x4 all-terrain vehicle used by the French Army

It would be really nice of you if you could ask Karlo to take a few pics of the truck...

I was actually referring to the Ashok Leyland Stallion...which in my opinion looked more like the Tatra Trucks used by the Indian Army...

I love the stallion too. One of my automotive fantasies is to do the Delhi to London overland trip in one of those.

It's a 4X4 made by our ashok leyland. I like it. Especially the tyres.
that is an old model.. I think Hosur still has one for auction
Not a stallion.. it was TOPCHI .. the ones before the stallion..

@ ananth - i hope you havent got anyone for the passenger seat of your "fantasy" stallion yet - if its still vacant.... IM COMIN ALONG!

some kickass feeling it would be to have one of these as your personal ride... no need to worry about pesky autotickshaws, bicycles, mopeds or for that matter any of the wildlife (humans included) that seem to occupy a majority of the road space today!!!

Besides, the look on the bell captains face when you pull up onto the portico of a swanky hotel in one of these monsters - Priceless!
The look on the Valet's face when you ask him to go park it someplace - Now that's for my museum!!!

Even if the passanger seat is not vacant you would have enough space on the Stallion.
