Raining Humvees! Military vehicles plummet in failed US airdrop drill

  • Clink9

    I would suggest they practice further over some jihadi camps.

  • This is why we cant have nice things!!

    They should do that drill over a reserve. The fallen crashed vehicles would fit right in with those abandoned in the fields.

    Back of envelope, that’s about a million bucks in failed drops.

    You can have it fast or have it good. Your choice.

    Good compact impact area.

    As God is my witness, I thought they could fly!

    The people laughing don’t seem to care that that was THEIR tax dollars going up in smoke.
    The Diesel fuel should have been dropped in a separate container so the failed drop wouldn’t cause that explosion to start the HMMV on fire.

    But, this is to simulate a real-time War condition where they play the odds just as many of the D-Day (1944) Air Drops had failed and not all the Parachutes opened correctly as several men fell to their death.
    Just as modern day Sky Diving schools have the odd death when the main chute and back-up chute fail.

    That’s like a 25% failure rate. Only in the biggest union in north america (US military) is this kind of incompetence allowed.

    As a taxpayer, I don’t find the destruction of Humvees to be funny.

    Now if the vehicles were to land on top of some unfriendly Islo-gangsters, that would be different.
