No matter where the Army deploys in the future, there will be roadside bombs, buried mines and other explosive threats that will require troops to travel in heavily armored vehicles.

“For combat, we know the Humvee is no longer feasible,” said Army Maj. Gen. Tony Cucolo, director of force development for the deputy chief of staff, G-8.
