Topic: HumVees vs APC


Do HumVees make good troop carriers in a hostile enviornment? I noticed the Marines have started to use an armor plating solution on the driver and passenger doors to protect them from schrapnel from IEDs and are building armor plates for the top gunner. Personnaly I perfer the six by six wheeled armored personnel carrier that deflects RPGs.

LOL. I meant that the use of Humvees has been discussed in a topic here before, and if youl look artound for it, youll find that we discussed the heck out of it. The topic should be in this section of the site.

Lemme speak before this gets locked then. I say Humvee for sheer agility and flexibility. There ain't but so fast, so agile, and so flexible an APC can be. A Humvee can have weaopns attatched, a hospital installed, MP booth created, and who knows what else...

Since my dad owns a Humvee and I've driven it numersous times, I'm inclined to say Humvee. An APC is okay for protection, but a Humvee is a great utility and transport vehicle.

This was started as more of a general discussion, but had the same tone. BTW:

A true HUMVEE or an H2? The H2 is a warmed over Suburban.
