Improvements to discontinued Humvees may last another 20 years
from National Defense Magazine
The darling of the infantry, the 25-year-old humvee, increasingly is being relegated to sitting in motor pools inside forward operating bases because its flat-bottom crew compartment is vulnerable to roadside bombs. But with a replacement truck still years away, Army and Marine Corps officials are planning to upgrade the humvee fleet — particularly its armor protection — so it can stay in service for another 20 years.
