Amazing that it’s taken so long to field something better than an up-armored humvee.
It’s not as simple as just going to the GM showroom, the MRAP’s are a bitch to ship from a logistics standpoint, they are not designed for air transport with what we currently have, they are going to either be shipped via Russian contractor via a Kondor, or by container ship.
I am glad they finally got them however, that is good news indeed.
This vehicle appears to be great for ordinary explosive charges directly under them, but I would like to see it take a blast from the side - where most IEDS are. What happens when the terrorists start using more armor piercing mines - the ones with deforming copper projectiles?
