Meng Model 1:35 - US Cougar 6 x 6 MRAP Vehicle - Plastic model kit #SS-005

The Cougar is a wheeled armoured personnel carrier able to withstand land mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). It also protects both the crew and engine compartment against various attacks (including small arms fire) and overheating in desert environments.

The Cougar was developed in 2004 due to the urgent demand of the US Marine Corps. Based on South African design of the 1970's, the new vehicle featured the latest advancements of the US military including breakthrough technology in mine-protection. 

About four thousand of Cougars were issued under the US MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) programme. The carrier is remarkable for its high reliability and safety level resulting in low mortality rate among crew members after IED attacks. The Cougar was widely deployed during the Iraq War and still serves with the armies of the United States, Canada, Poland, Italy and other countries.
