What was old is new again. Contractor Working to put Jeeps Back on Battlefield
A North Carolina defense contractor’s project could land Jeeps back on the battlefield as the U.S. Army looks for inexpensive, lightweight, unarmored vehicles that can be flown into remote locations. The Army wants to find vehicles that can ferry troops and cargo over rough terrain in situations that don’t call for heavily armored vehicles, and workers at Charlotte-based Hendrick Dynamics have developed a specifically modified Jeep Wrangler they believe can fill that void, according to The Blade.
