There is no such thing as "costs too much" when compared to one life saved! It looks like those new trucks are worth the cost! It just paid for itself. This is one of the new "hardened" vehicles that was hit by a 500 lb bomb (IED). The vehicle was totally destroyed, but everyone in the vehicle walked away. Note the unusual construction of the bottom of the hardened Pathfinder APC. Note the bottom looks like the hull of a ship. The blast picked up the truck and turned it around! The driver got some broken ribs (see the photo of the steering wheel), but that's it. Everyone walked away from a 500 lb explosion directly beneath their vehicle.
