U.S. Trains Iraq To Maintain Humvee Fleet
BAGHDAD [MENL] -- The U.S. military has been training Iraq to maintain its
new fleet of American-origin combat vehicles.
The U.S.-led coalition has formed teams within the Iraq Army to maintain
the M1114 Humvee combat vehicle. So far, the army and police have received
more than 3,000 armored M1114 Humvees from the United States.
"Our focus right now is in three areas: one being basic maintenance
procedures, operator-level preventive maintenance checks and services; base
mechanics on the M1114 and any other vehicles the Iraqis would like," U.S.
Army 4th Infantry Division Maj. Jeff Britton said.
