DHS to Recieve 2,700 Mini Tanks To Compliment Their 1.6 Billion Bullet Stock Pile

navistarOf the nearly 9,000 delivered MaxxPro units to the military, the Department of Homeland Security is apparently taking delivery (apparently through the U.S. Army Forces Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico VA, via the manufacturer – Navistar Defense LLC) of an undetermined number of the recently retrofitted 2,717 ‘Mine Resistant Protected’ MaxxPro MRAP vehicles for service on the streets of the United States.

As these MRAP’s return from overseas/Afghanistan, and although it is apparently unknown exactly how many are being delivered, or have been delivered to DHS, I decided to dig slightly deeper and discover more about the vehicle itself…

The new DHS sanctioned ‘Street Sweeper’ (my own slang due to the gun ports) is built by Navistar Defense (NavistarDefense.com), a division within the Navistar organization. Under the Navistar umbrella are several other companies including International Trucks, IC Bus (they make school buses), Monaco RV (recreational vehicles), WorkHorse (they make chassis), MaxxForce (diesel engines), and Navistar Financial (the money arm of the company).

    Yall are retarded. I used one of these while in Iraq 2 times and in no way are they mini tanks. The OLD versions of the Maxx pro had the holes where you could stick a weapon out of and shoot but the new ones do not. They are giving them to DHS because they are no use to the military now that we are out of Iraq. They are no use in Afgan(because they are too heavy and suck off road) and any war we fight where they have a military will tear them up with conventional wepaons.
