=O: =O: Shit Happens, those Samil 20's are a bugger to keep on straight and narrow. =O:

Some of our drivers history in army was below as well as driving into back of another ratel, he also claims brakes failed and instead of stopping at a kraal boundary fence we went straight through kraal, chickens and goats running everywhere and also fell asleep behind wheel after too much OBS and we went bundu bashing before anyone realises he was asleep. Then in Samil 20 he drove over our radio's and also hit a bakkie in Barberton.O**

I admit that the bridge is narrow, but how one can drive off it is a riddle to me :-? 0*\

Very easy in a samil 20, their steerings are not as precise as a car possibly due to years of abuse and bundu bashing. You are constantly having to correct the steering when driving, so if you aren't concentrating and it goes a little offline and hits one of those little concrete blocks, it could rip the steering very quickly out of your hands. With their bigger wheels also those blocks are like a brick to a car and will not stop it, but yank the steering.

Those are old vehicles, we had them and I am going back 30 years. \O If the sections was on patrol or whatever they would go with the vehicle for refuelling, they may also just have had a day pass while driver was there to refuel?
