Topic: Humvee in any context, not the answer!


The Humvee in any context is not the answer for our Troopers. The fact is the 113ACAV is likely the God of war. Am I bias, maybe? Look at your history. Having fought in ACAV's my argument has validity. To get informed refer to one of many web sites. I know from Nam it's hard to be critical, and step out of the box, when our Soldiers are dying in inferior equipment. It took DOD 10 years to bring the right equipment on after 1965. Then it was over. You want to be supportive of out troops, which goes without saying, but lets get them the right equipment. Why we are at it, bring the M551 Sheridan and the Loach Hughes 500D.

As for combat, I feel qualified to comment, having also been evac'd from the Pit. I speak out of experience regarding Track vs Wheel.

With all due respect some are just plain wrong on this subject. Tomorrow is a new day, learn!
