M1151A1 HMMWV, “Humvee”
This is a modern successor to the famous Jeep that was developed during World War II. The purpose was to replace all older off-road vehicles in the US Armed Forces and the first version that came in 1984 was an unarmoured off-road vehicle that had both open and covered versions. The efforts in Somalia and Iraq during the 1990s placed higher demands on the safety of the soldiers, and in 2004 a modification program was introduced in which the cars were fitted with an armor shell that increased the weight by about 450 kg.
