Two different companies. What GM was planning on selling to a Chinese manufacturer is the consumer end of the Hummer business (H2 and H3). AM General makes the HUMVEE which had been sold at first as the H1 but has not been made for several years.Yeah at the end it said GM is thinking about selling it to a Chinese manufacturer.
Did you see the ATV version of it? OMFG DO WANT!!!The Ripsaw is schweeeeet!!!!!! :035:
Wasn't Oshkosh Truck involved in that in some way or am I think of something else?Two different companies.

Yup. I worked in the Hummer plant making the mil versions for several years back when the production first boomed - made bodies, worked as a general repairman, ran a hoist, did about everything except work in the pits. The vehicle had good points and some fool bad ones too but most of all, it was supposed to be extra lightweight so more of them could fit in a cargo plane for deployment and it was supposed to be capable of tossing it out of a low flying plane over a runway with nothing more than a small chute on the rear bumper to keep it going straight.Kinda sad, is this true?..
yeah MRAPS replaced them for the army too, well, at least in iraq. we're phasing out the HMMWVs and replacing them with the MRAPS, Maxpros (pictured in Alaskan's post) Caimans, RG33s etc. so much safer (in an armor perspective). roomy too. haha i named mine Bertha.Yea, kinda sad, spent many hours in them..... :-(
I thought the MRAP was a possible replacement.... the Marines already have them.....:shock:8)8)
Yup MS2 is what I meant. Though I still want the ATV version of it!
