strange bunch these REP dudes...:D
Yes they are. Hope I join them. That video was just practice. This is a real deal. One REP-man lost his life doing that some half year ago. (we commented on forum)


If you looked video till the end you will see long list "In Memory" of those passed away as they say "chasing their dreams" and that was just 2013. Have in mind that not many guys in the world actually doing that (understandable :)).
It's really small community.

I would always remember words of Jeb Corliss (first guys in video , black windsuit... one of pioneers of this sport) "Half of guys I knew from this spot are dead" And that's pretty new sport :). About 15 y old. :)

The VAB replacement should be coming into service slowly by 2019. The VBMR Griffin.
Notice the lack of the latéral Windows and the protectetive amour
The 6 wheel drive
Almost, but not quite, a conformed copy of the Gendarmerie Nationale's VIB (véhicule d'intervention blindée...a version of the VAB)
