LOL.....you had to take on huge amounts of fluids if you spent anytime at all in the warrior.....on guy lost half a stone in exsess water one day......it was crazy the heat humidity inside those IFVS in the desert are 20x what it would be normaly......you understand the word 'desertised' when you spend your 1st few hours in one

The high number of bradleys lost in Iraq come from the IEDs........the ones that use tank rounds put the bradley at high risk......a landrover snatch was hit in iraq by that type of IED.....it never stood a chance

Problem with IEDs in Iraq now is that they have become more syphosticated for sure... There is evidence that "shaped charges" are in IEDs now making them deadly to high density armour.... Skilled combat engineers are the only ones capible of producing such charges.... Makes one wonder about Iran though.... The fact is that they have modern tank killers now and thats no easy feat... out of reach for a gang like Insurgent group for sure.....
