The old FA-3 jeeps have now been taken out of service and replaced with the newer, faster, better equiped FB-9s, nicknamed "Westies".
Produced by LJC, Lego Jeep Company, the FB-9 is the first jeep to be made by the new branch in the West Midlands, hence the "Wesite" nickame. The FB-9 is based on the old FA-3 chassis and uses many old FA-3 components. This means that any old FA-3 jeep is not simply scrapped and let to rot, but is scrapped and used to build the FB-9.
The FB-9 provides protection from anything up to the .308 or .303 bullets. The FB-9's have been made specialy to deal with the harsh terrain in Eastern Europe, freom the marshlands in Al-Dabir to the sand dunes and rocky outcrops. Armed with a machine gun, and/or a rocket launcher/TOW missile, the Westie can prove to be a formidable oppenent to any armoured vehcile, and, they can be a serious threat when in groups.
All drivers must know the rules of off-roading to ensure that they don't get themselves in a mess and cause problems/injuries/death/loss of property/territory.
2 of them makes for twice as much fun. And death.
And yes, they can tow things such as guns and trailers.
These look great Tim, they make the old FA-3's look like "shot boxes" by comparison. somehow they seem more practical in design...even though according to our expert down here the vehicle is weak structurally.
I like how they look. they look agressive! its like those jeeps they use in Africa Austrailia and safari regions. I like this jeep. Even though your jeep looks cool there is a problem. it wont survive a crash. it isn't very storng but it look good.
