I bet you can hit a hole in one with a RBS-56.

LOL. I echo what someone else said earlier: how would they refer to this vehicle over the radio?

Could we call it elvaBILL, then? :mrgreen:

Joking aside - I'm not Swedish, but I've heard "elvabil" used for the car before. Why not the "Elvabil (or 11-bil) Robot 56"? It sounds plausible enough in Norwegian at least, but someone who's actually served in the Swedish armed forces should probably comment.

The model looks cool but this thing is of very dubious combat value.

Still better than the Denmark quad browning truck that flieger mentioned.

You may not be able to hit a hole with it, but you sure as hell can make one (5:33).

Yeah with atgm mechanics as they are it's pretty much only good for killing missileless bmp1s, APCs, unguarded CVs and T34-85s.... Anything with a 2100m+ gun or something scarier than a malyutka is going to reduce the poor jeep to parts :cry:

It looks like a golf buggy :lol:
A brilliant plan from the dirtiest euro-hippie: get US players to pay me for a game that I then show them how much their military sucks so I can feel better about being a communist.
