Discussion Board on this DLS topic

The U.S. Army is going to transfer some 8,000 armored Humvees to the Iraqi army and security forces. Over 4,000 will be delivered this year, and the rest by the end of 2009. It will cost the army about $30,000 per vehicle. Some 40 percent of the cost is the value of the used vehicle. The rest is for refurbishment. This will be done in Iraq or Kuwait. Several hundred Iraqi Army mechanics will be involved with the refurb, which will provide them with experience in working on hummers.
