The Indian Humvee: Mahindra AxeS

For a long time, the Indian Self Defense Forces have been running around in WW2 era Jeeps made with surplus or auctioned off tooling. The pressure to keep up with the Joneses has the military in the final approval stages for a new vehicle called the Mahindra Axe. The rugged compact military transit is powered by two different engine options - a 2.7L diesel from Ssangyong, and a 4.2L unit you may have seen under the hood of your local Chevy Trailblazer. Rumor has it they're developing a home grown engine option as well as a civilian version. Maybe that name is having an effect on us, but we wonder we can get ours with the Gulf Oil Livery.
