Is this the Wolfhound?

With frustrating slowness, details of the Browne/Hutton armoured vehicle package are leaking out.

One component is the "Wolfhound: TSV (Heavy)", described as: "Heavy armoured support trucks - supporting and re-supplying Mastiffs in the highest threat areas." These vehicles, we are told, "will have the highest levels of mine blast protection."

Well, picked up from a news video, this (pictured) looks like it could be a Wolfhound. Maybe the MoD will add bar armour and supplementary slab armour to the cab but, as far as the basics go, this could be what is going into service.
