US MRAPs in Action
80 page book.
Adams-Graf. In 2006, President George Bush declared it 'priority number one,' to defeat the threat of improvised explosive devices. This volume describes the military's rapid response in developing and deploying mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles that ultimately overcame the threat of roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan. Presents in detail all the major MRAPs: RG-31s, RG-33s, Cougars, Caimans, MaxxPros and MATVs. Also included are the early deployed M1117 ASVs as well as Husky and Buffalo route-clearance vehicles. Color photography and detailed captions take the mystery out of identifying the myriad US-deployed MRAP vehicles, first deployed in 2006 and continue to protect service men and women. Illustrated with more than 225 photographs; 80 pages.
