MATVs are quick and maneuverable, although still a little top heavy, and have much improved armor over ANY up-armored variant of the HMMWV. They won't take a blast as well as an RG-31 or a Buffalo, but much better than a Stryker will. They function well as guntrucks for convoy protection, but not well enough for Route Clearance. The air conditioner, however, kicks azz.;-)

personally i liked the 31 better, the A/C was awesome in it. we had to turn on the heater to warm it up, but ya the matv a/c is good too.

My company painted that rig for BAE. It was pretty cool they pay good too.

Shame they don't pay their own employees very well...:cry: They are know being lean cost cutting company.

They did, they are looking for FSR's for 215 a year...Mechanics are paying like 160 and up...I am trying to jump ship to them right now...
As in 215k and 160k? If that is the case what am I doing with my life???
