As with society as a whole, the automobile, changed modern warfare, giving warring armies the ability to cover greater distances, adding firepower and combat effectiveness to units that traditional had little in small numbers, particularly the standard small infantry units. The concept of adding mobility to an entire army was not fully developed until World War II, and the primary tool responsible for that change was the Willys GP military vehicle, classically known as the 'Jeep'. In this blogpost, FWS will discuss one of the most iconic and used tools of modern warfare, the light military utility vehicle (LMUV).
FWS is not responsible if you run out and buy a ex-military diesel blazer, Jeep Rubicon Unlimited, FJ Cruiser, or even a Hummer after reading this post. So read at our own risk!
