Sin más comentarios, transcribo una nota de trabajo fechada el 21 de julio de 2007, sobre los MRAP, conservada en mis archivos personales. Lo hago para general conocimiento y para seguir apoyando a los que se exponen día a día. La foto fue tomada en Irak con anterioridad...


"There is no fail-safe. These IEDs, these large IEDs can destroy an Abrams tank. So there is no sure-fire guarantee that anything will provide absolute protection against these. But I think the experience of the Marines in Anbar suggests that the MRAP, and particularly with the V-shaped hull, does provide significantly enhanced protection for the soldiers and Marines inside."

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates from DoD Media Roundtable
