    Just going to leave this here, select few here know why this is a horrible purchase.

    When he accelerates, that is full throttle, foot to the floor. These vehicles are extremely slowwwwww.

      Should sell them as FMS vs surplus to the general public. Gov't might make some money back on these.

      Poor idea but better than selling for scrap metal like they did with a couple of aircraft carriers this year. One was given away and one was sold for a penny.

        They need to convert to RHD and deliver mail in them.

            Slow but persuasive. I would buy one with the turret and love to drive as per the video in Orlando. Move your ass outta the left lane. If it does 45mph it would be enough to tap a lot of car owners (not to be confused with car DRIVERS) and open the lane.

              I feel like the amount of money the US is "losing" is pretty insignificant compared to their defense budget. This is pennies compared to what they did in the late 2000's:

              And I would seriously buy an HMMWV for no reason at all if I had the cash. No ragrets

                I have loaded the S76, they flew it up to Westover and we did the mock up for the T.O. to load it. Super easy to load, the H3 is ancient and I am amazed they did not fund the new helicopter.

                But we got a new modifications for the Humvee's and yet here we are giving them away plus they pork barrel spent $ millions more on M1A3 Abrams battle tanks. Plus the F35 and so forth.

                        Lol, we did give a bunch to the ANA (Afghanistan National Army) so I wouldn't doubt it. Actually just found this V

                        Even though these trucks pretty much suck in every department, I wouldnt mind a open top M998 to drive around the property (Hard tops leak rain anyways)

                            I'm not sure a few 5mph bumper touches is the reason these are a risky purchase.
