US MRAPs in Action. Book by John Adams-Graf. Squadron Signal Books. In 2006, President George Bush declared it 'priority number one,' to defeat the threat of improvised explosive devices. This volume describes the military's rapid response in developing and deploying mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles that ultimately overcame the threat of roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan. Presents in detail all the major MRAPs: RG-31s, RG-33s, Cougars, Caimans, MaxxPros and MATVs. Also included are the early deployed M1117 ASVs as well as Husky and Buffalo route-clearance vehicles. Color photography and detailed captions take the mystery out of identifying the myriad US-deployed MRAP vehicles, first deployed in 2006 and continue to protect service men and women. Illustrated with more than 225 photographs; 80 pages.
