The Army's Humvee: Traversing the long and winding road of developing the military's light vehicle


During today's stroll through the Internet, I came across a really interesting story about the evolution of the Army's light vehicle, from the Jeep of post-WWII fame all the way up to today's MRAP, which stands for Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected Vehicle.

Check out the article here.

The article also contains a number of really great pictures of the various vehicles the Army has used over the years. One is of a prototype developed by Lamborghini, just prior to the Humvee.

Can you imagine our soldiers driving around in Lamborghini SUV's?
