Somalia: Video of VBIED attack on Italian convoy reveals how just how good Modern MRAP vehicles are.

(Mogadishu)  The weapon of choice for Islamic terrorists the world over is the vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED), aka the Car bomb. In response the West has spent a lot of time, effort and money in designing vehicles designed to survive such attacks known as Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) . The other week an Italian convoy was struck by a VIED and it was caught on video.

The Italians use the Iveco LMV , which has sold well around the world including over 1000 to Russia. As you see from the above video and following pictures, the Russian knew what exactly what they were buying.
