“The Pinzgauer is, arguably, the finest extreme mobility vehicle available in the world today. Its legendary features include 100% gradeability fully laden, a massive 360 mm of ground clearance, a short wheelbase, differential locks on all wheels…no other vehicle offers such a unique combination of strength of construction, ease of use, protected components and ultimate extreme mobility. All-wheel-drive and the differential locks are activated by switches on the dashboard – and can be operated on the move.

One of the most critical considerations when selecting a vehicle for world-wide extreme mobility is the track width and overall envelope of space around the vehicle. The optimum size is defined as a track width of 1.5 m and a vehicle width of not more than 1.8 m.”

I dunno about that. Have you seen the Aussie Bushmaster IMV (it's fully NBC proofed) and is mounted with 7.62mm MAG 58.

It looks like a "Homosexuality Awareness" van that does "tolerance" plays to high school students as part of their sex-education.
 
there are different versions aparently, and it looks bigger than it is.
