M-ATV: inizia il rimpiazzo delle Humvees in Afghanistan

Afghanistan – dopo l’US Army, anche il Corpo dei Marines ha iniziato il processo di sostituzione delle up-armored Humvees con i nuovi M-ATV (Mine-Resistant All-Terrain Vehicle).

L’M-ATV, costruito dalla Oshkosh Corporation (Wisconsin), e’ il primo veicolo fuoristrada militare protetto ad essere stato specificatamente progettato per operare in un preciso teatro operativo.

Qui sotto alcune foto scattate lo scorso 8 Gennaio nel motor pool del 1st Marine Logistic Group.
