Andy,
I do not believe that this Spartan is fitted with WRAP 2 armour.
The up-armouring consisted of fitting applique plates to the upper side plates and perforated sheets above the noseplate along with the gate like framework to defeat RPG's.
They were also fitted with a mine plate which extended up the lower side plate.
I am fairly certain that Spartans were not fitted with reactive armour packs.
All this added considerably to the weight of the vehicle thereby reducing its speed and agility.
Regards,
Steve
