We should have bought the Hummer instead of the Iltis.MLVW needed 150 mods to fix issues when issued, pretty sad when your just updating an existing design. The Iltis was not a terrible vehicle, but the Germans were at the time replacing theirs with G-wagons, which is what we should have done as well.
Other than the very true aspect of @CountDC ’s point that if you rolled it on a range road playing ‘Dukes of Hazard’ you could easily have it flipped back over before anyone else noticed the Iltis did nothing they the Hummer didn’t do better, and while you can’t flip a Hummer back upright easily, it’s wheelbase and stability made it very hard to flip.
The only time I needed recovery for an Iltis roll, was when we put it into a swamp behind the Mattawa plains.
That cost a case of beer and $20 at a coin op car wash in Pembroke to hose the mud and clay out (which shorted out the horn to permanently on) which was a little suspicious when we drove back to the Z lines.
