    Don't know what the problem is, I'm having no problems. Must be the outstanding performance and technical support of my ISP. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I think these are the pictures you were pointing to : HMMVW 1 -- HMMVW 2

    These were first introduced to the Army when I was in AIT. We were one of the first groups of mechanics to have them in training.

    Very cool trucks. Easy to work on, fun to drive but they are gutless and slow. That little 6.2 liter diesel just doesn't have enough power. With a blown Big Block you could have some real fun with a Hummer.

    Your link still isnt working /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif Pretty Neat toys though. I was on a 1026 gunner for most of my time. Saw some pretty neat expermental stuff every now and then. For some reason my platoon got chose to test that crap. Some noteworthy reflection are
    We tested two Heavy Armoured 1025. It had about 4KLB extra of armor on it, and a big Garnett Turbo on a 6.5. We got to drive it on road for a week, field test it for a week. And finally shoot 10K rounds of 7.62 into one of them. The contractor who built it went out started her up drove back to the staging area, pulled all the diagnostic computers out of it then told us to destroy what was left. We lined all 10 trucks up on the line and pumped 4K of 50cal APIT into it. I think that was one of the most beautiful things I ever saw.
    I also did testing on the UGV project. It consisted of a buch of hummers that had been loaded with fleer scopes and computers and allowed to go run a mission on their own,unmanned. and transmit the info back. They were a major failure and a complete waste of taxpayer money IMHO We should have kept the armoured ones and shot the robots

    the truck your refering to is a M1114, they are up and running, I drive one all to often. They are 10k lbs, they move out pretty well but suck when offroad till you get used to them, the zextel torque sensing differental works alot better, the now have a 4 spd auto w/ park(to many soldiers sleeping kicking off the e-brake and rolling away) they have both a front and rear a/c, sunvisors, highback buckets, the 6.5 TD, a turn signal that turns off after making a turn, blast lock doors, 3 inch thick glass, and they have very little room compared to the old setup.

    All I messed around on were M-1025s and 996s delivered in '86 to Schofield that had so much rust that POR-15 couldn't help them.

    yeah a/c they figured since you can't put bullet proof windows down(they kinda don't work when there down) and the inside of the truck would reach a temp around 130 degrees, then your wears your interceptor vest which has temps under it of well about 180 degrees. So they said hey lets put in some a/c. Great Idea to bad they crap out all the time, I was loving life in kosovo last year when the outside air temps would reach 100 degrees, and my a/c was broke, thats why I rode in the turrent most of the time. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Ahhhh... Schofield... I still have a set of once white wagon wheels that were permantly stained orange from the mud. I think it was a prerequesite to have one of those supercool dyed mud shirts. The good ol' days

    Pretty cool trick huh? Actually most of the scouts there were still 11 series. they were scheduled to go to knox and get 19D as their primary.
    I started out from osut in 2-7cav Ft Hood (which was mec inf) a month later I come up on levy for schoflied. I get there and am introduced to a very different world from what I came from. Everyone there either had been to air assult had a ranger tab or at least had been through rip. I get put on a drt team as a 60 gunner. 2 months later I come up on levy again...back to ft hood. When I get there where do I end up good ol 2-7 I was dissapionted to say the least. All I can say is in that short time I learned more and did more than the rest of my enlistment.

    No they stayed on foot. The trend though was after the 11B's were retrained they got shipped out to real scout units about 6mo to a year later. I ran into alot of my old schofiled buddies at hood. I cant remember now but it stank of disbanding the btn or something.

    At Ft. Stewart, the Ranger BT. rejects went there. We had one in platoon, real nice kid and knew what was up, but darnit all to heck, he was dense. He was working on going back to the batt. And we always wondered how the heck he landed his wife. Total mismatch.
