What’s it like to drive a... big MAN army truck

Meanwhile out in the wilds of the Hindu Kush, where if you break down or get stuck you're scuppered, it is the British Army's MAN support trucks that have been turning the want-for-nothing US forces green with envy. It seems the whole gun-toting western world wants a MAN (no sniggering), but right now it's TopGear that has the keys.
This is the basic HX-77, as yet without its desert duty war-paint and 360-degree armour plating. And sadly no 50.cal bolted to the gun turret, but we are in Bedfordshire. Not quite the Tora Bora. Not yet.
