That looks like an old converted ARFF crash truck. Possibly an oshkosh.

Or one of these:

Dont know who the manufacturer of the MNU GPSV is as it is a Toyota Hilux concept vehicle I beleive made for the movie but could be a proto from a weapons company. The second pic is a RG-32M made by these guys

The mine resistant vehicle Im pretty sure was a variation of the Casspir, which is the 3rd pic:

and I think they used a couple of other models like the RG-31 throughout the movie too. Lots of South African stuff. They make some bad ass toys cause they have lots of roads with mines.

Nope not that. They are in the first part of the movie. Not sure if Hollywood added the suspension but they look nice

The one you see in the first part of the movie is a MKIII Casspir (http://www.baesystems.com/ProductsServices/bae_prod_landa_casspir.html)

You would be correct on the vehicle, it's a little more than a concept vehicle though.

It has been around for a while in one way or another just got a new face this past year though.

Yes, Hollywood did a good amount of modification on the vehicles. Most of the stuff in the movie (weapons, vehicles, some body armor, etc) was for the HALO movie, but since it got canned it was used for this.

It's my understanding that there are lots of French battle rifles for sale, never fired and only dropped once.:ot:

The Hilux look WAY better than the Tacomas in my opinion. Add the diesel that is offered overseas and you have one very nice pickup.

I'd have to agree, and I like the Tacomas, but the lift height, tire size, fenders, truck bed and snorkel on those Hilux are perfect for my tastes.


I thought the movie was pretty original and interesting. The acting was pretty subpar, but overall I enjoyed it.

Arctic Hilux:

To defeat these extreme conditions, the Hilux has been fitted with parts like heavy duty locking differentials, thick skid plates, fuel heaters etc. The mods have been done by ‘Arctic Trucks’ a company that specializes in prepping 4WDs for extreme conditions. Here’s the list of mods if you are interested.

-Studded snow tires of 38 inches in diameter on 15 inch arctic trucks aluminium wheels replace the standard 255/65 R16 wheels and run at pressures as low as 4psi to give good flotation over snow. Two valves per wheel.
-Heavy duty winch mounted on a heavy duty bulbar with lifting points.
-Xenon auxillary driving lights for areas with bad visibility.
-Arches flared by 30cm to protect the tires.
-standard 169bhp 3.0 D-4D engine modified for ultra-low air temperatures.
-Extra coolant added to boost coolant temperature before start-up together with fuel heaters and a heavy duty battery.
-Fat 5mm aluminium skid plates protect the bumper, suspension, transmission and transfer case.
-The position of the front suspension was moved 50mm towards the ground, then moved forward 40mm.
-Lots of kits including shovels, pry-bars, jacks, towing strap, tool kits, first aid kits and a chain saw.
-Locking front and rear diffs modified to cope with the cold.
-Special exhaust, raised air intakes and an extra 90-litre fuel tank to increase the total capacity to 170-litres.
-Shotguns were carried for protection against polar bear attack.
