U.S. forces have an armored vehicle in Iraq that they lacked in 1991, according to StrategyPage. The four wheel ASV-150 (Armored Security Vehicle.) was introduced in 2002 for military police work. But since, then, it's been used mostly for "convoy protection and showing some muscle when the locals get unruly." A four-man crew operates the 40mm automatic grenade launcher and 12.7mm machine-gun mounted on the 20-foot long, 8-foot wide vehicle.
