BAE Systems Land Systems OMC of South Africa will supply the vehicles as a subcontractor to General Dynamics. Work under the contract is expected to be completed by 2009. The contract includes an option for a second phase for 80 additional vehicles that will include some manufacturing in Spain.

The RG-31 Mk5E is a 4x4 armored vehicle with a combat mass of up to 17,000 kg, including 3,500 kg of payload.

First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to
ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
your mind prior to writing. I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting
my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thank
you!
