The U.S. officials announced on Tuesday an additional $625 million in aid to Ukraine, which includes 200 MaxxPro mine-resistant vehicles.

The new American assistance package for Ukraine includes a batch of MaxxPro Mine Resistance Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.
The International MaxxPro is a 4×4 armored vehicle developed for the U.S. military’s mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicle program.

The vehicle was designed to take part in the US Military’s Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle program, led by the US Marine Corps, as well as a similar US Army-led Medium Mine Protected Vehicle program. MRAPs are categorized as category 1 or category 2, depending on usage and passenger compartment space.

The MaxxPro base model utilizes a crew capsule with a V-shaped hull, mounted on an International 7000 chassis. The V-hull deflects the blast of a land mine or improvised explosive device (IED) away from the vehicle to protect its occupants.

According to Navistar Defense, the vehicle is designed with operational readiness in mind and utilizes standardized, easily available parts, to ensure rapid repair and maintenance. The armored body is bolted together instead of welded, as in other MRAPs. This facilitates repair in the field and is a contributing factor to Navistar’s greater production capacity for the MaxxPro.

Weaken Russian Army at ground with prolonged and gorilla tactics

Not long-ago rumors were being spread that Russians are running out of Missile Rockets, Russians are not heavily using their Airforce yet in battle it seems

One aspect they dont anticipate that don't poke the bear

after 300 days of displaying complete incompetents there are still brainwashed russian fanboys in this wolrd....
they use anti air missle for ground attack, they buy drones in third world countrys like Iran, they run low on menpower and ammunition, they are not able to feed and supply their troops on the move, they hand over rusty ww2 weapons to their drafted old grandpas. They field completely outdated equipment They cant protect prestige infrastructure, 300dys and they still dont own the sky, they loose their Black Sea Fleet to a nation without a Navy at all. They cant even blockade Odessa from delivering grain via commercial ships... Ukraines reaction to Russia getting out of the grain deal with Ukraine UN and Turkey...they have send 12 ships into the black sea... Russia is stripped down to a joke the entry world is laughing about... without 6000 nuclear weapons the NATO would have already finished this joke of a military
