Hmmvs are nothing more than an SUV and it is a disgrace that they have been used as APCs since Somalia or ever again since then anyway. JMHO.

Hmmvs have a very needed role and are an incredible useful asset at times - With that said to a degree it is BS that more undated MRAP type vehicles (of differing versions) have not been brought into theater at high enough levels (to date).

Great to see General Dynamics turn these out so quickly now that they are part of the process....

Using more Heavy lift air assets, putting down US only MSR roads, and continually going after the IED makers / financiers would have been very helpful starting back in 04 -

But 20/20 hindsight is always easy.

Good to see more of these MRAP types will be headed down range.....Nothing bad about that and we should be glad it's happening....

They were never intended/designed to be APC’s. The orignial mission was nothing more than transport/battlefield taxi.
