Jim K. forwarded this link to a site with some interesting photos of improvised up-armored civilian “contractor” vehicles in Iraq. As the old Doobie Brothers song goes: “Oh Blackwater, keep on rollin’…” I suspect that some of the contractor vehicles in The Big Sandbox also now carry anti-IED jammers. (Commercial off-the-shelf CREW-2 equivalents.) Or if they don’t, they should!
