To tell the truth, it could carry more water than a quad. Quads are used by many forces outside the wire, but don't have the same capacity to carry suplies. Unless you hall a trailer but then your limiting the mobility which brings us back to why the gator's are being used in the first place.Bob Terwilliger said:Colin, armies have to adapt to the threat at hand. When I was in, the threat was a massive Soviet invasion of Europe. That's what we trained to deal with. Our training had no focus whatsoever on counter insurgency operations, EIDs or anything like that. I don't expect troops today train to deal with 3rd Shock Army rolling through the Fulda gap. If the largest single threat to soldiers deployed today comes from roadside EIDS, then why the %&#*%& are they driving around in unarmoured, open topped lawn tractors that do not even have a bloody roll cage????
