    1. Why is the spare wheel so sticky-outy?


      • yeah, I can see that getting shot off on a regular basis.


        • LUKE1-5 & MyConfinedCanuck.

          In war, (American) you do not change a tire. Spares are for changing on base. Army combat vehicles do not even carry a spare (Stryker, MRAP). You drive it back (run flats, automatic re-inflation), or you destroy it on scene. So the tire being there are more for extra armor (my point of view) or peacetime uses.

          In low conflict areas (such as Iraq today) you may wait for a civilian contractor to come tow your sorry ass back. EOD snapped an axel on one of their MRAPS because MRAPS suck. WE offered to tow them back, and they weren’t allowed to get towed in because the MRAP was under warranty. The extra damage from towing (improperly) would have voided the warranty. So we went back to base, and they waited out in sector for the civilians.


    2. Just one question. Does it come in black?


    3. The US Marines are using the MATV now. It looks super badass.


    4. Don’t see it having a lot more armor than mil. grade hummers. Who’s the target market?


      • Way Way more armor then a Hummer. Also sits higher (distance is armor). Doesn’t look like a lot higher in the front, but in the passenger compartment, the step is about where the floor of the Humvee is, and the floor clearly sits higher.

        Also looks like the engine compartment is at least covered w/ metal, and perhaps armor. A HUMVEE is still fiberglass there, so it take nothing to make you totally immobile.


    5. in case of zombies, aliens, or the second coming of jesus…..


    6. Is this the new hummer?

      cause like the original humvee, I’m liking the design. would love to try it out in the urban environment


    7. why one would want to drive a fucking military grade vehicle for everyday purposes? oh yeah, unless he/she’s a fucktard
