marvelous machines those larger Antonovs.. FDF uses them also when theres need to haul
lots of stuff to long distances. one occation being the ISAF mission.. and the transportation of
14 offroaders and 2 trucks all with addon kevlars. quite handy.

MRAPs are quite nice but they certainly are not heavyduty APC/IFV replacements.
