  1. someone on a ferret forum mentioned this one.. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/.../Mowag_4x4_armored... This was the Swiss recce veh thwt served the same purpose as a Ferret. They chose to have armoured wheel covers. Most likely because: the vehs were primarily for roads and gravel tracks; the vehs were to be used in Switzerland and they knew where their own minefields were; and, the vehs were also to serve an internal security role. They were superceded by the Piranha family and became anti tank training target vehs. A number are in private hands in the UK.
  2. After replacing the old runflat tires on my ferret with modern non-runflat tires, i started to think about the aliens movie APC. I couldn't find any real vehicles that actually have an armored plate in front of the tires. I thought there would be 2 main benefits of doing it. It would be a certain level of resistance to a bullet penetrating the steel and puncturing the tire. But also, if the tire was punctured, it would retain a large amount of its rolling diameter with the steel plate actually taking the weight of the vehicle. The lip/edge of that plate could also be widened to increase the surface area in the event of this. So anyway, does anyone know why this seems to never be used? I wouldn't think the increase in unsprung mass would be too much of an issue. )
