US Army Says Humvee Replacement Rides Too Smooth: Should Be Rougher | MotorBiscuit

You would expect a military tactical vehicle to ride rough. Stripped bare with no creature comforts, it is what a military vehicle should be. But the Humvee replacement, the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, rides like a Cadillac. That’s not good according to the Army majordomos who have determined that it rides too smooth. It’s too comfortable.

“For leadership, the ride is so smooth it brings its own concerns,” 1st ABCT spokesman Maj. Pete Bogart told Task & Purpose. “My wife has a brand new Volkswagen Atlas, and it does so much for you that you often forget you’re hurtling down the highway in a several-thousand-pound vehicle. Leadership wants soldiers to remember that they’re in a tactical vehicle, not a Nissan Altima.”
