Re: Jeep is back in the US army

Are these actually being purchased and used by the US Army? Or is simply an army-like custom job by Hendrick Dynamics?

Re: Jeep is back in the US army

I'm thinking this is a one-off custom job. Can you imagine being in a desert convoy with no windshield? Not to mention the complete lack of human and vehicle component protection. A person with a rock in their hand could take out an occupant or the radiator...

Not saying it isn't cool looking, but I would feel bad for a soldier who had to drive this outside of a green zone.

Re: Jeep is back in the US army

From reading the article a few weeks ago. Hendricks built and presented the idea and the army is demoing a few of them. Not sure there's a contractor more vehicles at this point
