Dalla metà degli anni '80, il veicolo militare americano ad alta mobilità (HMMWV o Humvee) è diventato icona dell'esercito americano. In servizio in tutto il mondo da decenni, rimane lo standard mondiale per i veicoli tattici militari leggeri.
Since the mid-1980s, the American High Mobility Military Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV, or Humvee) has become synonymous with the US military. In service all around the world for decades, it remains—Iraq War controversies notwithstanding—the world standard in light military tactical vehicles. Gradually nearing the end of its frontline service, it has earned a place of honor beside the much-loved Jeep of World War II. This is a concise look at the background, development, and operational history of the Humvee from the 1970s to the present. The author brings a unique perspective and authority as a Bosnia veteran and former Humvee crewman with the United States Army’s 1/104th Cavalry. He was granted behind-the-scenes access to 1/104th Cavalry HMMWVs and the Army’s collection of rare vehicles at Ft. Benning, Georgia. Also included is the Humvee’s service in lesser-known places such as Cold War Germany, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Korea, and Africa, as well as detail photos of the Humvee’s features.
