You want at tank, get a tank. You want an armored personnel carrier, get a Bradley or a Stryker.

The Hummer was NEVER intended to be a tank or APC. It is a replacement for the NO ARMOR, 60 hp jeep that had not changed much since WWII.

It is silly to build every vehicle to withstand every possible attack. To do so, you sacrifice mobility and rapid deployment. Often it is more important to get there first than to get there absolutely safely.

Some people do not understand this.
