Most of the land cruisers are ran by DOD contractors and 3 letter agency guys, the easiest way to figure out who they are is to is to look for firing ports in the window. Most units over there have soft trucks to run around the FOB in. Well except at our COP, you could throw a rock across it. I doubt all of those are for DOD use, alot are used by contracters and they pay the DOD to bring them in. I have seen alot of the F250s and suburbans, I need to get out my hard drive and find the picture I have of an F250 that we recovered that had been blown all to hell.

I was there in 2006-2007, I remember how disapointed the ANA and ANP troops were when they found out they would be issued Ford Rangers rather than Toyotas! lol!

Love those Ivecos posted up there. Wish I had the chance to see one when I was there. But I think the Ford Ranger has proven itself worthy enough, since they're imported from Thailand.

Great thread! Lots of cool pics of the high-end friendlies but what about the sketchy old war horses? Some of those rides fought the Soviets first! Further who is the guy who volunteers to hold on to the box mounted 50cal at 100km/h cross country?! One guy doesn't know how to drive and the other how to shoot. Neither guy survives but the truck does!?

Best Toyota related SitRep ever...

T13B, T13... reference Yota 400m to your front. 6x pers with small arms. Are those guys with us?... ANA? ANP? or Timmy? Over.

T13B beats the f*#k out of me... all three probably. Keeping eyes on and 120 ready. Out.


One minute later... CRUMP... no more Toyota!

T13B, T13 Confirm contact! Over.

T13B, Negative... looks like an RPG reload lesson. FAIL. Out.


(Sorry no pics... OPSEC)

Awesome Thread!

There's nothing but Toyotas rolling around in Africa. This is a Land Cruiser pickup that belongs to the Army guys from Chad. They also had some old Soviet BMP-1 Tanks that I helped ship out too...



I know it's not from Afghan but thought I'd share anyway.

What's sketchy about the palletization? That's the standard pallets they use for commercial birds. Our 463L pallets fit on the 747's, MD-11's, C-17's and C-5's. If we were going to ship them out on a C-17 or C-5, we wouldn't use pallets for them. We would chain them to the aircraft floor.

Anything Toyota related for the most part. I like seeing the countries that primarily use nothing but Toyota's. So, Africa fits within that circle.

He's probably referring to the fact that there are only cargo straps run through the wheels to hold the things down. No chains, nothing tying the vehicles down left to right, nothing protecting the straps from sharp edges on the wheels, etc. Not the pallets themselves.

Exactly....no chaffing gear or chains. No wonder civilian birds are crashing in Bagram

The straps must be rated at 5,000lbs or more since the vehicle weighs well over 10,000lbs. We use 5,000lbs straps. The chains and devices would be absolute overkill, considering they are 10,000 and 25,000lb restraints. So, from doing this kind of stuff on a daily basis, I can only assume that the straps have more than enough restraint to hold the vehicles on to the pallets, where the pallet locks on the 747 provide all further restraint. This set up is just how the airlines provide all forward, aft, lateral, and vertical restraint. Here's a Renault VAB I saw on my deployment getting ready to be shipped out. They did a similar set up for it.

You are an aerial porter, so I'll defer to your judgement. However, in light of the 747 that crashed due to a load shifting, those cargo straps with no chafe protection do look sketchy. Especially if you add a 30-40 degree climb angle into the mix.

I know. Believe me, those MRAPs should have been sent out through C-5's or C-17s. Now, if a Cadiallac Gage Commando M1117 weighs roughly over 39,000lbs, we can safely assume an M-ATV probably weighs about the same, if not more or less. That's way too much weight for those straps to hold. But since those land cruisers were both palletized and strapped down, they shouldn't have to worry too much.
