Wiley-X gloves – as used by the US military

‘So what’s this then?’ you might ask…
Well, that is the Caiman

mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle rollover simulator where they

train the soldiers on what to do and let them experience what it feels

like when the vehicle is blown to its side or turned over by the blast.

Fun as it may be as seen by the expressions
of the soldiers as the

sensations comparative to a roller coaster ride but this is no laughing

matter if it was the real thing.

This is what happens if you have not
buckled up properly. A soldier

is seen trapped in his own safety buckle whilst his fellow comrade helps

to release the straps on him.

On the right: Who said foliage green does not go with ACU?
