    Can anyone find pictures and specifications (armor, weapons, top speed, range, etc.) for the Staghound Mk III? I would have posted this in another area, but this seemed to be the only place that would fit the bill of non-aviation related pictures.

    PS Yes I did use google and yahoo, but I am currently on my school computer, which blocks the pages for "Adult content" or "weapontry". Grrr, stupid school cpus!

    No problem. Personally I would take the Puma, it is much cooler than the Staghound.

    I would love to build a replica of a King Tiger, but a static one. I wish I had the money, but it must be great to build your own one and be able to drive it around.

    Yes, those Sun of a birches can not drive for shit. I will drive over all those TAXIS that cause all the shit. Pretoria ( oh sorry the stupid assholes of a government calls it now POLEKWANE ) is way nicer place than Joburg, only thing is it is very hot.

    Have you been to South Africa Gnomey?

    Nope, might go this summer. I have been to Madagascar, Tanzania and Kenya and my dad has been to Jo'burg. In Africa no matter where you are the people cannot drive (or necessarily know where they are going).
