It says rescue on the side too, I feel safe now - nothing to worry about.

Well at least they can't "sneak up" on you in that damn thing, and they have to get out eventually.

O, what a rogue and peasant slave am I.

weren't a lot of your soldiers getting blown up in iraq because they had to drive around in sub standard crappy armored trucks or humvees or something like that. if they had something along the lines of these wouldn't they have been better off. and if so then doesn't this send a message to who gets better treatment on the food chain.

Actually, I think it's a sign of a police crackdown and martial law coming to America.

RE: Homeland Security beefing up for something big?
chuckle i wouldn't worry about these Humvee's too much....

These vehicles are considered to be inadequate and vulnerable.... especially in an urban environment.

The Humvee is a piece of shit, guzzles gas and the Army can't even use them for their designated purpose.

Due to the flaws and armor upgrades, the vehicles are too heavy for airborne operations.... where mobility and then the ability to hold a position are required.

The Army can't wait to get rid of Humvee's, until then they got to bullshit to media about avoiding IED's.....

The Vulnerable Humvee - Timeline
http://www.stripes.com/polopoly_fs/1.114...humvee.pdf


"The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program will be reviewing the proposals for a new vehicle, and has a pretty specific list of what it's looking for. Manufacturers getting in the game need to submit prototype designs for a seven to 10-ton truck — something that will provide adequate protection but is lighter than a fully armored vehicle.

The Humvee was designed as a general do-it-all carrier for a frontlines of warfare — much like the old standard Jeep. It was big, but it was light and was engineered to travel on varying terrain. But, as combat changed from battlefields to urban settings all over the globe, a flaw was exposed.

The Humvee had virtually no armor to protect troops inside when on start-stop type missions. When the vehicle needed to hold a location, it was extremely vulnerable.

The military compensated by adding armor and bringing on Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) carriers. But this was also an imperfect solution. While the Humvee was nimble and could be dropped into location, these armored vehicles could not.

New combat needs are clear — a vehicle has to be secure enough to protect against explosions and ambush but light and tactical enough to go anywhere and maneuver in tight situations. After 20 years, advances in technology, design and battlefield knowledge are expected to yield a better-suited model. "


The race is on for the Humvee's successor
http://www.stripes.com/polopoly_fs/1.114...humvee.pdf


"With the MECV cancellation, the air assault mission will now be filled by the JLTV and unarmored versions of the Humvee, Bassett said. The JLTV can be airlifted alongside Army airborne troops in "standard conditions", according to Bassett. For missions where the vehicles need to be inserted at high altitudes or in sweltering heat -- or basically the "high and hot" conditions in Afghanistan -- uparmored Humvees will be used. However, those vehicles will not have the same level of protection as the JLTV or the now-defunct MECV against roadside bombs. The Army's answer? They simply will not use the uparmored Humvees in air assault missions where improvised explosive devices may be used, Bassett said. How exactly the Army plans to avoid IEDs, which have become the No. 1 cause of casualties for U.S. and coalition forces, during high-and-hot air assaults, Bassett did not say. One thing he and Fahey did say is the Army can't waste anymore time getting the JLTV into the field."

I'm glad we have a democrat for a pres because a conservative leaders typically have too high of a fear factor, which cause them to act irrationally.
