Description

The military didn't take into account how Humvees would be affected by fitting them with heavy armor for war. The armor causes the vehicles to roll over much more easily and makes them more difficult to control on the harsh Iraq terrain. Seventy per cent of the deaths involved with Humvee accidents occured because of the vehicle rolling over.
