The U.S. Department of Defense executed an option to buy 1,700 more HUMVEE vehicles as part of an existing contract with AM General. WNDU.com reports the award is worth over $250 million. The U.S. military will soon be moving to replace the HUMVEE with the JLTV vehicle, but there is still requirements for thousands of these vehicles. Iraq and Afghanistan have been especially harsh on the modern jeep and versions with more and better weapons and armor have been developed.
