I believe they didn't have a big enough Tank for airport regulations as they where to be used as RRV style machines and they tipped easy! One was wrecked during trails

I thought they looked like they would tip , its one thing doing a static tilt test and another whilst doing 50mph lol !!

West Midlands had a few recently got shot of them due to stability issues and complaints re use, I hope no UK brigade buys these.

One had gone to Falklands for use at their airports!

What is the track width of this vehicle? It seems incredibly narrow when judged relative to its height which would explain the instability.

They are fine. Plenty in use safely throughout Europe. Let an idiot get behind a wheel and they will turn anything over. It used to be called driving skill.

not to sure on this but I was told the first one to be overturned with this batch for the RAF was driven by by Bremach's own driver showing its caperbilities

sorry john , in europe they dont put ladders etc on the roof the ladders etc make it top heavy , Bremach said they would be ok and the plainly are not , the track is too narrow for the likes of wales where they have turned one over and to blame the driver is an atrocious judgmental statement to make , the manufacturers got it wrong , that is the issue nothing else . also the build quality is awful , for instance the interiors fall apart in weeks not years, it is not a good bit of kit, it is a bad peice of kit why else would the army sel them of after only a few weeks in use ? I have driven one and I can assure you when you come to the first corner you soon find out how bad it is and that is on the flat and on tarmac!
