used by the Sri Lankan military based on the Buffel.Contents1 Production history 2 Variants 3 Operators 4 References 5 Further reading 6 External linksProduction history[edit] Initial research into producing a "Blast Protected Vehicle" armoured personnel carrier was begun in 1983 by a lone Infantry Major named Jayantha de Silva who was concerned by the destruction wrought by Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) that the Tamil rebels began using on military troop transport vehicles. These IEDs became rampant in the north and eastern provinces with the escalation of the Sri Lankan Civil War. The many experiments he carried out showed that explosive force dissipates in proportions to the distance travelled. These led to the production of vehicles based on commercial truck chassis with a strong metal hull about two metres from ground level

Bullet TCV
A bullet is a component of firearm ammunition and is the projectile expelled from the firearm's barrel. The term is from Middle French and originated as the diminutive of the word boulle (boullet), which means "small ball".[1] Bullets are made of a variety of materials such as copper, lead, steel, polymer, rubber and even wax. They are available either singly as in muzzleloading and cap and ball firearms,[2] or as a component of paper cartridges[3] and much more commonly metallic cartridges.[4] Bullets are made in a large number of shapes and constructions depending on the intended applications, including specialized functions such as hunting, target shooting, training and combat. Though the word "bullet" is often used incorrectly in colloquial language to refer to a cartridge, a bullet is not a cartridge but rather a component of one.[5] A cartridge is a combination package of the bullet, casing, propellant and primer

Cashuat
The Cashuat is an armored personnel carrier produced in El Salvador, and based on the Dodge M37B1 (4 × 4)¾ ton truck. The first Cashuat prototype was built and trialed in El Salvador
El Salvador
in February 1985. The prototype lacked sufficient ballistic protection, so the Salvadoran government sought assistance from the United States. Seeing that El Salvador didn't have manufacturing facilities capable of building the number of vehicles required, the US Army Tank Automotive Command's RDE Center's Design and Manufacturing Technology Directorate proposed a three-step plan to produce the vehicles: 1. A second, improved prototype would be built in Detroit, and sent to El Salvador
El Salvador
to serve as a reference model. 2. The armor would be cut and welded in the United States, pre-assembled with the windshields and side-rails, and shipped as kits to El Salvador. 3

Casspir
The Casspir
Casspir
is a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle that has been in use in South Africa
South Africa
for over 30 years. It is a four-wheeled, four-wheel drive vehicle, used for transport of troops. It can hold a crew of two, plus 12 additional soldiers and associated equipment. The Casspir
Casspir
was unique in design when launched, providing for passive mine defence. The main armoured steel body of the vehicle is raised high above the ground, so when a mine is detonated, the explosion is less likely to damage the crew compartment and kill the occupants. The cross-section of the hull is V-shaped (V-hull), directing the force of the explosion outwards, further protecting the occupants. The vehicle also offers crew protection from small arms fire. The capabilities of the Casspir
Casspir
were the basis of the outline capabilities required by the U.S
