FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier £4,500.00 + VAT Witham (Specialist Vehicles) Ltd & www.mod-sales.com ideal for the School Run

Posted 1st Jul 2011
The Ideal Vehicle for this winter and the school run.

The FV432 is the armoured personnel carrier variant of the British Army's FV430 series of armoured fighting vehicles. Since its introduction in the 1960s it has been the most common variant, being used for transporting infantry on the battlefield. In the 1980s, almost 2,500 vehicles were in use, with around 1,500 now remaining in operation - mostly in supporting arms rather than front-line infantry service.Although the FV432 Series was to have been phased out of service in favour of newer vehicles such as the Warrior and the CVR(T) series, they are now gradually being upgraded to extend their service through into the next decade.In light of the army's need for additional armoured vehicles in the Afghan and Iraqi theatres, the Ministry of Defence announced in August 2006 that an extra 70 vehicles would be upgraded by BAE Systems in addition to 54 already ordered as part of their force protection initiative. The improvements take the form of an engine upgrade, new steering unit, and new braking system as well as improving armour protection to a level similar to that of the Warrior. The concept is that these FV430s will free up the Warrior vehicles for reserve firepower status and/or rotation out of theatre. The Updated version is to be called the "Bulldog

Stupidly good value for money!!!
Haha yes please! What's the insurance like on one of these beasts?
Anyone know if I could get my golf clubs in the boot?
Ineresting, but need to find out the insurance costs for 3rd party for my 17 year old son.
What's the fuel economy like?
Much better than a Chelsea tractor.

No-one will argue with that!!
Waiting for amazon to price match.
It's not a Sony though.
I like the armoured jag, easier to park, shame no machine guns.


I've got one of these, the lack of a sunroof lets it down
Will come in handy for when the Zombies attack ! Does it come with any amo ?
Will buy 10 for ebay
Anyone know if a standard steering lock will fit?
I like it....voted hot

but still think it could do with some LED daylights, maybe some larger wheels and bigger bore exhaust, "NO FEAR" moniker across the back and a spoiler but I guess I could add those later :-)
Hottest ever deal?

From £1500

Cold from me:

"Guide price from:£4,500.00
Subject to UK VAT unless sold outside of the EU"

Was a bargain until the extra £900 got added

No HDMI. Cold.
Has it air conditioning ?
voted hot hot!! Buying two - a his and hers
I can see myself now doing the shopping in this - no one will argue with me for a parking space now
Urgh. Why do people always do this?

Perhaps it might have been funny the first time - but how many times is this now? It's embarrassing.
Ideal if you live in Leicester.
Must be a misprice but worth a try as always.

Expecting a cancellation email though...
This will avoid any congestion issues?
