    I noticed that the FSS (Fire Suppression System) for these vehicles, ONLY covers the Engine Compartment, and does NOT cover the Wheel Wells, so if the tires are burning, they are toast.... Sticky Fueled Fire is a winner, here.....

    styro dissolved in gasoline to form jellied gas. That should do it. And delivery system could be compressed air. Glass jars of jellied gas, compressed air launched from PVC tubes, with strike anywhere match head covering the lids.

    I want to say that just like the Army's old FOX vehicle which is impervious to all known chemical/ bio agents it is also resilient when it comes to nuc blasts and the resulting emp , the mrap is a 4th or 5th gen vehicle with the same capabilities so dont think you can katch em and kill em that easy ..... and while yes they have electronics they also have ceramic coated everything soooo they can still move after blast and resulting emp...

    It doesn't matter if you can breach the hull, only if you can make it hot enough, they MUST come out. One very large, white, stationary dutch oven.......[micro][flm][flag]

    He can't do that, without violating the law. With enough research, you could figure it out for yourself.

    Get them stopped in the manner of your choice and force them to come out and play....have a prepared ambush and when the worms come out of the can you can eat em up....They will operate independent of foot infantry until tactics dictate, usually in a urban environment....so they are semi blind if you plan properly.

    They will move with over-watch where allowed typically... if so you have to mind the firepower of support. Blind curves and other choke points are your friend.... isolate and creating fear, works as well as actually taking someone out. Once the word gets out that they are being chewed up .... they will minimize their use or tie up more assets to operate....and you win a psychological battle.

    Yeah, drove them. They are designed to keep troops safe inside, but many have been injured from percussion, and quite a few gunners have gone down because they are outside on the turret. We lost 50+ on a maneuver to antitank mines --saved the occupants, but ravaged the tires and front end. They can be disabled, but not easily destroyed.

    Oh yeah. Moreso for tracked vehicles, too. I recall a couple Brads down to c-wire. Took hours to untangle the mess. What a stupid night that was. If you want to talk about tying up resources, that will do it.
