Around the 1980’s, the U.S. Army had a whole battalion of armed dune buggys. These were expected to scout and harass enemy areas. Painted in green and brown camo, they were called Chenowth and they were equipped with machine guns, grenade launchers and even anti-tank missiles. They were built for one driver one co-driver and one turret-man that controlled the armory. These battle-buggys proved useful during the time of the gulf-war providing U.S. Navy SEALs a dashing speed and off-road movility, making their way to the first forces of entry to Kuwait City in 1991. We invite you to try out our buggys at Cozumel’s Dune Buggy Adventour.
