6,000 MRAP's Coming to a Street Near You

As the invasions of foreign countries in the Fertile Crescent winds down.  There is an expected excess of 6,000 MRAP's of various configurations.

These along with numerous other .mil systems are going to be deemed not needed as they are non-standard equipment and will be given to the .mil jr's called police departments .

Through 2011, the Defense Department bought and fielded more than 27,000 MRAPs, according to the Government Accountability Office, which on March 31 sent Congress a briefing on how the Army and Marines are trying to determine what equipment designed specifically for fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan should be retained and what should be discarded.
How to handle nonstandard equipment is an issue bigger than MRAPs, however.

For example, as part of its post-Iraq-Afghanistan transition work, the Army since 2004 has reviewed 409 equipment systems, according to the GAO. Of those, only 11 percent have been determined useful for the future, including MRAPs. Thirty-seven percent of the systems under review have been deemed “not needed and should be terminated,” according to the GAO. The remaining 52 percent, on which the Army has made no decision, are nonstandard equipment being used in Afghanistan and other overseas operations and paid for with OCO money.

Sometimes it hard to tell the difference between .mil & .leo now days.  

It's gonna get a lot harder.

    A nickname the germans gave the sherman tanks the allies used was "Tommy Cooker" due to the ease of catching fire because of the gasoline engine and fuel catching fire when hit in the engine compartment. Fire will put the fear of God in any armored crewman, whether a wheeled or tracked vehicle, as their first reaction will be to unass that sumbitch.

      Oh, btw, I do know these MRAPs are diesel but all that does is stir the imagination.
