This is a fun one

I had two in my squad on my last deployment A crew of three, with a MK19 and M2 as well as a pintle wount up top for a M249 SAW or M240B. This is a 17-ton badass. And the A/C in it will cool a five-room building. Even in the middle of the Iraqi summer, it actually gets cold in there.
