Relax, its not a coup

I took this picture yesterday with my mobile phone while walking down infirmary road near the department of defence. It was one of three Mowag Piranha IIIH 8x8 Armoured Personnel Carriers stopped at traffic lights. Strange thing to see so close to the city center. Thought it worth putting up.

That's a good pic Tedzer. Didn't think our army would have anything that modern.

Apparently we have 80 of them. Each one is manned by five and sometimes seven men. They have mounted 50 calibur machine guns and mortars. A decent piece of all round weaponry.
