More LAV A2 War Pigs Ordered
The Corps has put out a contract for 151 new and improved A-2 War Pigs due at your home base no later than Dec. 2008 with General Dynamics. The contract for $189 million includes an additional $50 million extra for 394 electric turret drives. The War Pigs will arrive in various improved configurations that War Pig Marines have come to know and love such as our favorite-the CSquare, command and control, armored personnel, anti-tank, logistics and mortars. As per usual the power box is brought to you by a Detroit Diesel with six on the floor, five forward and one reverse, Allison MT653 trany with 275 horses under the hood . There will be an auto fire suppression system in these new war pigs. Four rear wheel drive is permanent and eight wheel drive is on call. Have Fun and Get Some!
