Force Protection, a small firm based in Ladson, S.C., hand builds blast-resistant trucks for the U.S., British and Iraqi armies and the U.S. Marine Corps. The Cougar is based on a Ford truck; the Buffalo is a modified Mack truck. The RG-31, built by General Dynamics, performs similar missions. In 2005 these vehicles were folded in the the "Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected" program (MRAP) along with several other similar designs.
