Cougar, Hyena and Pookie.


Just received my latest 1/54 scale vehicles from David Freemantle in Australia. The detail is unbelievable. I have posted his details on a number of other articles on this blog.

These were a series of vehicles used for mine and ambush protection during the Rhodesian Bush War.

The Pookie was used by the Rhodesian Engineers to clear the many roads that had been mined by the terrorists.

The Hyena was an early mine protected vehicle which was used by the BSAP, INTAF, PWD and many other government agencies as well as civilians I believe. It was used until the end of the war and after.

The Cougar was probably the best and last of the mine protected vehicles produced in Rhodesia. Used by the organisations above. Also produced in South Africa.
