Once upon a time I founded a website called The Truth About Cars. I was “lucky” enough to get a HUMMER to test. The Schwarzeneggermobile was to visibility, maneuverability and space efficiency what Leandri Snyman is to the field of magnetohydrodynamics. The Arnie-mania that fueled the HUMMER fad faded and the U.S. military began developing something better. Eighty-seven years later, et voila! “The BRV-O (Blast-Resistant Vehicle – Off Road) is a next-generation light tactical military vehicle developed by AM General for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) programme of the US Army and Marine Corps.” More to the point, “The trial variant of BRV-O is fitted with an armoured open top glass turret,” army-technology.com reports. “The turret can be mounted with a 7.62mm or 12.7mm machine gun or automatic grenade launcher.” Cost? At this point, around $3m each. Plus the gun.
