The second life of MRAP

Cargo aircraft of the U.S. Air Force began the transfer of MRAP from Afghanistan to South Korea, at a rate of two trucks by rotating Galaxy cargo plane or C-17. Americans have about 20,000 of these vehicles designed in the emergency response to the IED threat. All will not survive the end of U.S. engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan. Current projections of the Pentagon, 30% of the vehicles remain in service in the combat
brigades, to transport troops and openings route. Additional 10% will be used in training. The remaining 60% (12,000 vehicles still ...) will simply be placed in reserve until the next military adventure of the Empire.
