    2012 SEMA Special Operation Forces Vehicles of Choice

    In the back corner of the Off Road Hall, there was a really cool display of vehicles that Special Operation Forces use in the field and, as you can guess, the first one in the line up was a standard AM General HMMWV...


    Next up was a Polaris MV850 ATV...


    Of course, that was followed up by a Kawasaki Teryex...


    and last but not least, an armored up Toyota Hilux....






    I'm sure this is no news to Greg but for the rest of us, go figure

    Yep....

    Those ARE my actual rigs I do most of my wheeling in. Although the newer Hilux's are not nearly as cool as the earlier models.

    It's even better when you are stuffed into the vehicle, which is stuffed into an aircraft that is being shot at during the landing on an insertion. Now that gets you thinking about picking the right driving lines quickly.

    If you are in the GMV (HMMWV), your spotter is on the main gun up top in the turret. Back in the early days we never had doors so it was easier to self spot
