    A Sherpa "Light" for the NSG out in the "wild", spotted in Delhi:









    Looks to be brand spanking new (protective wrapping on the steps), perhaps on its way to the unit?

    Interestingly, the NSG have also inducted the Ford F-550 with MARS Ramp for anti-Hijack operations:

    Trying to figure out why they would go for an entirely different vehicle to serve in the same role as existing platforms:

    What possible advandatage may the F-550 have over the Sherpa-2 assualt platform? @Gessler @Vergennes @Agent_47 @Ankit Kumar 001 @GuardianRED @MilSpec @Sancho

    They seem to have very similar performance:

    as @Gessler mention , if it is not economics , it is possible that is availability and delivery ie. a delivery period

    In other words, Renault Trucks was only able to deliver a X Nos. of vehicles with the delivery period , thus the F550 fulfilled the balance to maintained the required force levels within that same delivery period

    Still this ask more questions like

    1) What is the Forces Level for MARS vehicles? and for which vehicle for which hub? - Sherpa 2 for Delhi for eg, F550 for?

    2) How was this vehicle brought thru - Tender? if yes , how did the F550 qualify? we see the Sherpa -2 with an Armoured Cabin and well the F550 isn't

    3) If not Tender, then possible thru the buying spree of equipment, we have seen after 26/11?

    4) A third possibility, after 26/11 in addition to equipment , we saw many countries offering CT services and training (IDF border Guards for Force One) it could be that the F550 is part of training package?
