Budgets are under pressure in the European land vehicles market, with OEMs having to compete harder than ever to secure procurement contracts. Joyce de Thouars analyses the sector.

From the resilience of steel to the reduced vibration and weight of rubber, the choice of track material for military vehicles is not as straightforward as it might seem. Claire Apthorp explores the pros and cons of both technologies and the emerging hybrid options.

In the second of a two-part series on the final stages of Operation Herrick, Tim Fish analyses how the equipment stored at the British HQ at Camp Bastion will be disposed of or removed from theatre back to the UK.

Typically the weak point of any vehicle or structure, windows must provide a sufficient level of protection in-theatre, while offering acceptable levels of clarity to maintain visual awareness. Mike Bryant looks at how industry is achieving this.

Although arguably not yet a mature solution, active protection systems are one way of ensuring troops remain safe in-theatre. Tim Fish looks at the latest technological advances in the market and the products currently leading the way.

Tim Fish talks to Chris Murray, president of Agility, about the company’s equipment disposal operations for the UK MoD in Afghanistan, and how it goes about getting the best price.
