Yes, a real-brick, German, modern military build. I am collecting parts to build a Leopard II and saw some tires and thought, "I could build an MRAP". Quick Flickr browse and I found a nice chassis technique and then this was build. Thanks for viewing, please rate and comment.
About this creation
Rhino MRAP Stats:
Top Speed: 77 MPH
Weight: 11.2 Tons
Armor: Carbon Steel, Kevlar, Ceramic tile, Bullet-proof glass, carbon fiber, titanium, and Mk. 2 APIS
Primary Armament: M2 .50 cal HMG CROWS
Secondary Armament: none
Power Plant: ISB4e V8 Diesel Engine
Combat Range: 850 miles
Crew: 1 (3 passengers)


Developed in 2014 by the German Army to combat IEDs and asymmetrical warfare groups. Shown here with full asymmetrical warfare package.


"V" shaped hull and a high ground clearance help to minimize the effects of IEDs, while the APIS can intercept most rockets and rounds over 40mm.


The glorious rear. Most of my green parts come from the Indiana Jones sets, like the jungle cutter, hence the "CCCP" Sticker.


The German Cross things on the door are official stickers from the Indiana Jones set with the biplane and the Me-109. And yes, I know that there are no windows, I'm working on getting some trans-black parts.


The front, the hood is too small, but the only other hood I have is orange, not great for hiding from RPGs.


Here's a first, full 4 wheel suspension. Sadly, not my technique, but borrowed for the MRAP king on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/66138404@N06/9265924617/in/set-72157634600727109).


All the wheels. I want to integrate this into my Humvees and future MRAPs (Yes, future MRAPs).


Four wheel steering, for nice tight turns and epic drifting.


Doors and the rear hatch open. The M2 also rotates, elevates, and depresses.


It even includes a pathetic excuse for an engine block, yeah!


Suspension and steering mechanism, not much to see here.


Grappling hook, for ... grappling? Could be useful someday.


Roof removed to show the four occupants, I'm tying to squeeze in a fifth.


A five man (and woman) German Infantry Squad in desert/forest combination camouflage.

I designed this in LDD and then put in real bricks, like the Abrams, Blackhawk, and Humvees. The file is included.

Thanks for viewing, please rate and comment.

Very nice work on your MRAP! The colors look nice as well. The details you worked in on such a relatively small scale are outstanding as well.

Quoting lone wolf Nice MRAP! I suppose the colors could be more consistent, not sure there is anything else here to change. You mentioned more MRAPs, are you planning to do the Buffalo with the robotic arm mine remover? That one is my favorite of the MRAPs.
Thanks. The colors are a desert/forest camo pattern. It'd be all tan, but most of my tan is tied up in the Abrams. As for the next MRAP, the Buffalo is a possibility, or another American MRAP.

Quoting Scott Johnson Nice i love it ive awlays wanted to make a cool humvee type thing. Btw what does MRAP stand for?
Thanks. MRAP stands for Mine Resistant Ambush Protected. If you want more info, a quick look on wikipedia is very helpful.
