MATV or RG31 mraps. Humvees are pretty much just fob runners now. Units without them just use humvee or an fmtv

AM General is developing a new platform, they are located about a mile from me and I see them regularly. But due to bureaucratic BS it will take 10 years and be full of to much nerd and kevlar to be an efficient combat vehicle.

If you can. Snag a pic and post it here. Id like to see what I may be working on in the future. So far the only thing with kevlar I know of is my body armor. Vehicles need something harder to take a blast.

I will try. Here is AM Generals site with a few pictures.

Nerf and kevlar is something we used to say in my time when we were switching from the 80s-90s style flak jackets to the interceptor vests with all of the stupid add on pieces that made proper engagement difficult.

True. We call it the IOTV or improved outer tactical vest which is gen 2 armor. Before that was the iba and before that was the flack vest.
