Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
I didn't read anything about the marine corps not liking them. They will outperform a civilian SUV as they have lockers. Do some research on these. They are very well made trucks.I don't know Mercunimog404, from some of the comments in that link MWMULES posted, looks like the USMC didn't think that much of them.... But, that's neither here nor there. What I'd be curious to know is what's their reliability like & how do the ride? They look like they'd perform the same as an civilian SUV and that's not entirely all bad. What sparked my passing interest in them was the Swiss Army Vehicles has one for sale. At 19k it's a bit "rich" for my blood but considering what civilian G-wagons are bringing, I'm sure that's a steal.
One nice modification made to Unimogs for Swiss service was breakers instead of those wretched pointy fuses.... For example, if I haven't driven my Unimog in a few weeks, I have to "Twirl" all the fuses in the fuse box to make thier little tiny pointy ends cut through the oxide and conduct again.
