    Cougar MRAP meets large IED

    Note that the engine was thrown about 100 yards away.
    All crewmen lived, with only minor injuries.

    Looking at how the back door frame is racked, I think that's a write-off. Normally, they can just put new running gear under them, as they're designed to be easily replaced.

    Lucky guys to have escaped serious injury. I think the vehicle is toast, however.
