The flash floods in Malaysia, even in Klang Valley where there have been professional city planners at work has been rather devastating for many.
The economic loss for many have been high and it continues as the heavy rains keep on pounding the city and there seems to be little that the town councils can do as the decades of lacking enforcement in clean drains and proper construction cannot be un-done.
This is why when we spotted this APC on sale on social media we thought, what a great possibility for someone who can afford it and also to be used to save stranded city folk.
This is a North American street legal vehicle that has full documentation and will be possible for importation into Malaysia with the right Approved Permit holder assisting.

The Blackwater Grizzly APC, offered here is a 22 ton armoured infantry mobility was designed and built for the US Army and its unique design would handle 50 caliber rounds and absorb and deflect blast from underneath to protect its cargo and humans.
The Blackwater Company was commissioned by the US Government to produce these vehicles for modern day warfare and combat. But just like every war the US is involved in, projections were off and the need for Blackwater to complete its order was obsolete and larger companies who have a strong influence on US Policies like Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics were awarded the contracts exceeding of USD120 million dollars.
What is the Story?
The MRAPs offered for sale are Blackwater Grizzly APCs built in 2007-2008. The Blackwater Company (now Academi) was commissioned by the U.S. Government to produce these vehicles for modern warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan.
However, U.S. projected needs turned out to be a bit off, and the Blackwater order was no longer needed. Larger companies (Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics) with heavier lobbying strength were awarded the MRAP contracts in excess of USD120 million dollars.
The upside of Blackwater’s efforts at the time was that it gave them a chance to prove they could build something just as well as larger companies and produce a product that could meet military specifications.
These MRAPs have never seen combat. They have never been beat on in the deserts and streets of Iraq or Afghanistan. With most of them having less than 1,000 miles on them, they are not “used” military gear. They are brand new vehicles and this is the last one we have available!
