Ansar Al-Sunnah Take Down More American Humvees

The American humvee has proven to be one of the most easily exploitable vehicles for Mujahideen and specifically Jaish Ansar Al-Sunnah in Iraq who sent another two to the graveyard while carrying out unrelenting attacks against Kurdish Peshermga forces.

 

One of the US military’s most-used vehicles, the vulnerabilities of the Humvee or Hummer as it is commonly called were identified over a decade ago and were never intended to deflect the kind of explosive warfare that Jaish Ansar Al-Sunnah and other Mujahideen groups are now able to wield.

 

In an effort to prevent roadside bombs from slicing and dicing these vehicles in Iraq, the US Army rushed out vehicles with reinforced armour exteriors, known as “up-armoured” Humvees however many troops had to rely on armour kits that have been externally attached to existing vehicles. There are approximately 5,910 Up-Armoured Humvees and 9,050 Add-on-Armour Humvees for a total of 19,389 operating in theatre in Iraq. There are 5,144 Humvees in Iraq without any Add-on-Armor.

 

Worse yet, mercenaries, such as those employed by Blackwater, Dynacorp and over 200 other mercenary firms, now have over 100,000 hired guns deployed in Iraq – a one to one ratio to enlisted soldiers. These trained killers often venture out without even the basic armoured exteriors due to the corporate greed of their employers. While the mercenaries killed in Iraq aren’t figured into the US militaries casualty numbers, at least 1000 deaths at the hands of the Mujahideen have leaked their way to mainstream press. Often referred to as civilians, these for profit soldiers are far from it, a fact that has not been lost on Iraq’s fighting groups.

 

Ironically, some of these efforts to armour up in combat against the Mujahideen have had the reverse effect. Additional welded armour plating, attached to the Humvee, makes them very heavy and causes an extremely poor ride due to the excess strain on the shocks. Furthermore, the roof-to-helmet distance on the Humvee is small and the seats have no padding or spring to absorb the excess force so if a soldier does survive a strike, chances are he will be injured inside the vehicle. And that is why they have become the target of choice for the Brothers of Tawheed.

 

Two more Hummers were eliminated from the American war chest by Ansar Al-Sunnah as their Mujahideen reported several other operations.
