Why don't scouts use LAV fighting hatches?


Recommended Posts

Its two more sets of eyes watching the sides and rear of the vehicle. My brother rode one all the way to Baghdad, they never buttoned up, even in firefights.

Their LAV column was ambushed on a road in the middle of the night by entrenched infantry on both sides of the road. They were killing crazy charging fedayeen 10 and 20 yards from their vehicles, from the fighting hatches.

Not sure an LAV would last long with crazy fedayeen barking at the back door... In SF that is, not RL.

Honestly, I have had Humvees that do better than LAVs, come to think of it, in one scenario my Trucks did better. No kidding...... its a bullet magnet....... Still its a looker....
