The JERRV/Cougar in the deep desert calling worms, mining spice, and generally annoying the Fremen.

a really atmospheric pic. the truck looks both ugly and reassuring, a safe home-on-wheels.

Safe, but wildly uncomfortable, but three guys can live out of one for weeks.  I keep suggestion that they slap a bunch of armor on some Winnebagos, but so far nobody in charge has liked the idea.

Thanks.  Lots of beauty everywhere.  Even there, doing that.  The trick is remembering to see it.

Yep.  The old girl kept my team and me safe for six months defusing IEDs in Helmand.  Will always have a special place in my heart.

I can understand the bond that one would form with their vehicle if they have some close calls with them. During your tour, did you ever experience any moments such as IED explosions or ambushes where you felt your vehicle would let you down?

Not really, these Cougars are the Cadillac of armored vehicles.  Felt a lot safer than bumping around Iraq in "Mad Max" armored vehicles back on '05.  Getting out of the truck can be a little nerve wracking but when you're in there you feel pretty secure.

Good to here that they are a reliable vehicle to have around when on patrol. I remember when the Canadian Forces first started out in Afghanistan, they patrolled with the Iltis, which was a deathtrap to be in. Thankfully the CF was able to procure the LAVs, RG-31s, Cougars, and Leapord 2s. Otherwise, they would have continued to be ripped apart.
