    :haha: Yeah i wouldnt even think about taking it in anymud deeper than a few inches, with about 8,500lbs of weight on that thing would sink faster than the titanic! It had a snorkle on it, but that thing on the front isnt a snorkle, its used to jam all the signals that the enemy uses to blow up their IED, Improvised Explosive Devices that you read so much about.

    Whoo Rah, Airborne.
    I was at Bragg, 504th PIR before heading to 3rd Ranger Bat....But that was back in the early 90's...Seems like a long time ago...Sigh...Miss the many night time jumps, into the dark.
