How to remove a run flat from humvee tire

19 11 2012

It is not the official way to remove a runflat tire but it works! What do you need?
– two forklifts
– rope
– long iron bar
– some wood bloks
– a lot off grease or soap

Put a tire under the forlift (picture 1) and put a rope around the runflat tire(picture2).
Grease the tire and runflat good!(picture 3 and 4). Then pull the runflat and make tension on it (picture 5) with the forklift. Then put on the wood and wig it with a ironbar(picture 6). Put a gentle tension on it and now the runflat will slowly come out!(picture 7)

Uro or Humvee? Special Ops

Uro of Humvee?! Hummer huren heeft weer het laatste nieuwtjes over dit bijzondere voertuig….

AM General has unwrapped the latest take on its venerable Humvee: the Ground Mobility Vehicle (GMV 1.1.) Slimmer and trimmer than the original, it has been fully reengineered to meet the requirements set by the Pentagon for the next generation of vehicles it is currently seeking to support U.S. Special Forces operations.

Powered by a six-cylinder, 3.2 liter turbocharged diesel engine rated at 300 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, the GMV 1.1 has a top speed of 80 mph and can climb a 40 percent grade and traverse a side slope just as steep. It will accommodate six articulated weapons mounts including a turret on the top, and can be outfitted to ford water crossings up to five feet deep. Per Defense Department specifications, it has been designed to fit inside a Chinook helicopter for rapid deployment.

The GMV 1.1 is one of several proposals vying to win a contract to supply 1,300 vehicles to be used by the special operations forces of all of the branches of the military. It is currently on display at the Association of the United States Army expo in Washington, D.C. alongside its competition from Northrup Grumman, the Medium Assault Vehicle ? Light.

A decision on the contract is expected by the end of this year, with production slated to begin in 2013.

AM General is also one of three companies still in contention to provide
the direct replacement for the Humvee as the military?s primary ground transportation vehicle, known as the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle. Its Armored BRV-O currently
facing off against proposals from Lockheed and Oshkosh in government evaluations, with a decision on the $20 billion program scheduled to be made within two years.

AM General BRV-O
AM General built the Humvee and is proposing to replace it with the BRV-O, or Blast Resistant Vehicle – Off Road. It features a fuel-efficient six-cylinder engine with six-speed automatic transmission, self-leveling suspension and “clustered super-computing power.”

Lockheed JLTV
Lockheed calls it the Joint Warfighter, and it features a V-shaped hull, uses a Cummins diesel engine and armor provided by BAE Systems.

Oshkosh L-ATV
The entry from Oshkosh is a version of the Light Combat Tactical Vehicle concept that competed in the 2010 Baja 1000 off-road race. The company says it offers MRAP levels of protection against explosive devices and can be available in a diesel-electric hybrid version.
