Still Waiting on Humvee Replacement

“The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, the Pentagon’s long-awaited replacement for the workhorse Humvee, is at least four years away from full production,” USA Today reports.  

“That’s two years later than the date an Army general told USA Today in 2012 and six years later than the Army’s target date in 2007.”  

“That year, military officials told USA Today they preferred to develop the JLTV instead of a larger truck, the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle, that reports showed was far safer against the improvised explosive devices killing hundreds of U.S. troops in Iraq than the Humvees most were riding in.”
